We’re starting to wonder if football teams know who their target audience really is, especially when we see something like this from the Washington Commanders Ron Rivera. Apparently, Coach Del Rio has his own opinion on January 6th, he voiced it and since it’s not of the Leftist persuasion it’s WRONG … and something worth fining him $100k over.
No, we’re not kidding.
Look at this ridiculous statement from the Commanders (if you can get past their even more ridiculous rainbow logo):

Punished and fined for wrong-think.
On a freakin’ football team.
Welcome to 2022.
This didn’t go over so hot …

Seriously, every L maybe ever.
What Jack Del Rio said was objectively true. Fining him for telling the truth is almost as asinine as changing your team’s name from the Redskins to the Commanders.

Now they should change their name to the Cowards.
You folks are an embarrassment to the United States.

for having an opinion that’s kinda wild

Embarrassing, ignorant AND fascistic @Commanders

You think the 2020 riots were about “demanding justice for George Floyd?”
What a dumpster fire organization.

LOL "You better not step out of line with how you're told to think or you'll be fined."

If you don’t think the way they want you to then you’ll get fined.
Seems like a great place to work.

LOOK AT THAT! IT WAS THE DAY OUR DEMOCRACY ALMOST DIED! REEEEEE!
Fining him for voicing his opinion?

I can't even begin to describe how ridiculous this is. So disappointed in the Commanders and the entire @NFL in general.

Wow, not agreeing exactly with the personal political opinions of sports journos sure does cost a lot of money.

So, it's ok to do it, even if you do it worse, as long as you're on the politically woke side?
Great message from the Washington Commanders.

Super awesome and totally won’t get them dragged and humiliated as they head into their upcoming season.
Nope, not at all.
What a freakin’ disaster.
