Redskins revise stadium sign policy
WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins are doing an about-face on preventing fans from bringing any signs to home games.
The Redskins issued a news release about 2½ hours before Sunday's game against the visiting Denver Broncos to say they "revised" their stadium sign policy.
Owner Dan Snyder said in the statement that he understands that "some fans want to express their feelings with signs and they should do so, as long as they stay within the boundaries of good taste and don't block the view of other fans."
Last month, the team banned spectators from carrying any signs or banners into its stadium, citing fan security and comfort. That policy had coincided with an increase of signs critical of Snyder and front office chief Vinny Cerrato.
