The NFL Shop’s Redskins “State Pride” license plate is...uhhh....wrong.

This one will be quick, as I have a Sixpack to get out today! Over at the ol’ NFL Shop, they are running a “State Pride” license plate campaign. As first reported over at the Washington Post, the plate for the Redskins was:

Anyone notice the “state” we are said to have pride in?

IT’S WASHINGTON STATE!!

Holy crap...how does a billion dollar empire not know that it doesn’t have TWO teams in the state of Washington? How do they not know they have a team in the NATION’S CAPITAL?!?!?

I just went over to NFL Shop to see if the plate still existed in this form, and I think they fixed it, but shouldn’t we just take a moment to ask how—with only 32 teams to manage—they put the Redskins on the wrong side of the country? And from a state that hails an entirely different team that we all kind of despise at this point? I mean, the Seahawks have ended too many postseasons for me to be able see this and not think I am being trolled.

First Jeff Fisher...and now NFL Shop?
