‘Sell the team!’ Redskins fans chant as team falls to 1-9

One thing is for certain: Everyone heard it. Everyone knew what it was about. Everyone knew why it was said. 

There is no mistaking what was happening.

The Washington Redskins fans at FedEx Field again sat in a more than half-empty stadium to see the home team fall to 1-9. And, yet, the meager crowd still produced a loud and unmistakable noise. A din that even raised above the announcers on the television broadcast.

A crystal clear message came from many mouths and formed one voice to deliver a message to audience of one, owner Daniel Snyder, "Sell the team! Sell the team! Sell the team!"

There is no question about everyone hearing the message. From longtime team president Bruce Allen, to interim head coach Bill Callahan, to the players on the field, to the owner himself.

Just as he heard the booming sound of "Hail to the Redskins" after a late inconsequential touchdown echoing around a now totally empty and still cavernous stadium. A sad reminder of how embarrassment has replaced pride in the DMV.

There is only one question left: Snyder heard the fans' chant, but do you think he will ever listen?
