What is it about the Washington Commanders that makes them so consistently unable to get out of their own way? The old team name, the endless Dan Snyder scandals, the defensive coordinator getting fined for inappropriate comments (he’s since been fired for being a lousy coordinator), the rumors swirling around the head coach — what a mess. Oh, and their uniforms suck.
So it’s not really a surprise that the Commies even managed to mess up a feel-good initiative like the NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” promotion. As I mentioned in this morning’s Monday Morning Uni Watch report, lots of players participated in the program yesterday, wearing custom-designed cleats to support their favorite charitable causes. That included Commies DB Kendall Fuller, whose cleats supported the Fellowship of Christian Athletes:
Here’s a shot of him wearing the cleats in yesterday’s game against the Dolphins:
Just one catch: The FCA bars LGBTQ people, and even supporters of gay marriage, from serving in a leadership role within the organization. And while Fuller wearing this footwear on the field yesterday in support of an anti-LGBTQ organization, the team was holding its annual Pride Day promotion.
Perfect timing, right? Whatever else you may think about all this, you have to admit that only this team could wind up with this particular situation. They really seem to have a knack for this type of thing.
Outsports, which first reported on this, says Fuller and the team both declined to comment.
