PLEASE let this t-shirt be on sale!

Dan Quinn, who was hired earlier in the offseason as the head coach of the Washington Commanders, set off an absolute wildfire recently. It had nothing to do with the team or what could happen on the gridiron later this season; rather, it had to do with what he was wearing.

While speaking with reporters, Quinn sported a t-shirt featuring the “Commanders” name and their “W” logo on it, no foul there. But then you notice something on the W: two feathers, an iconic symbol of the Redskins (1937-2019) brand.

As we all know, the franchise caved to pressure from both the public and corporations because of alleged “racism,” eventually leading the ‘Skins to change their name to the “Washington Football Team” and then, two seasons later, to the “Commanders.”

Well, Quinn, being the “football guy” that he is and being connected to the game literally his whole life, apparently wanted to pay a little homage to the history of the Commanders.

He certainly did …

… and created a vicious storm while at it.

Screw the haters! I need that t-shirt!
