Caller skewers Redskins for creating PR mess ahead of key game

Six days before a crucial game in Philadelphia, the Washington Redskins claimed linebacker Reuben Foster off waivers just days after he was arrested on domestic violence charges.

If the Redskins were hoping to create a media circus that took attention away from a two-game losing streak heading into a potentially season-defining game against the Eagles, which could help decide the NFC East, then mission accomplished.

"This is the worst organization in sports as far as public relations," caller Carlos in Alexandria said Wednesday evening on 106.7 The Fan. 

"This is an organization that doesn't honor its fans. It doesn't trust the integrity and the intelligence of its fans. And what we’re seeing now is the difference between guile, and transparency and truth. And they do it every time, and they’re never gonna change unless (Daniel) Snyder gets rid of the team.”

Police in Tampa said a 28-year-old female victim said Foster “slapped her phone out of her hand, pushed her in the chest area and slapped her with an open hand on the left side of her face.”
This is the third time the former first round draft pick has been charged with a crime in 2018. Foster was also suspended for the first two games this season for violating the NFL’s conduct and substance abuse policies.

The Redskins decision to bring in Foster could be another instance of subtraction by addition.
