The NFL Shop created “State Pride” license plates for several NFL teams, but since Washington D.C. is not a state, the shop instead placed the Redskins’ logo over an outline of the state of Washington.
The Redskins recently benefited from a court case in which the Supreme Court allowed their name and other allegedly “offensive” team names to be trademarked. Now it seems as though the team has to worry about the other half of its name.
Regarding whether any Redskins officials are stationed in Washington D.C. or the state, Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg jokingly said, “But at least the owner lives … nope. But at least the players live … nope. But at least the team’s corporate headquarters … nope.”
Once WaPo pointed out the error, the NFL Shop removed the product from its website.
