Fan-card protest makes WJLA
Of the many dozens of "Fan Protest" ideas that have been floated among Redskins fans this fall, the "Mail in Your Fan Card" thing seems to have gotten the most traction. See, more than 26,000 page views on Extreme Skins. (View the Fan Card here or here.)
The instructions were to mail this Fan Card back to Skins ownership, and also to media outlets, temporarily renouncing one's Skins fandom and the financial implications therein. And WJLA picked up the story Tuesday night, noting that they've received more than a dozen fan cards. Okay, that's a small start, but it's a start.
(Stewart Small -- the star of this piece -- is one of the true treasures of D.C. sports fandom. You will find him at Skins games, D.C. United games, Mystics games, Caps games, always dressed appropriately and with an incredible reservoir of optimism enthusiasm. If he's souring on the Redskins, things are really bad.)
The piece closes with a Redskins spokesman saying the Fan Cards show how devoted and passionate their fans are. True.
But what's with these relentlessly negative TV stations?
UPDATE: Just went down to the newsroom mailroom, and it turns out The Post has also received about a dozen fan cards, addressed to the sports editor.
