Champ Bailey Seems To Really Miss Being A Redskin

If you follow @Redskins on Twitter, then you understand it is a national treasure. Most of the content in its feed attempts to spin the overwhelming negativity around the organization into something worth our time and money. Today, we got a prime example when this tweet went out:

“See, guys! We once drafted good players! Bet we could again someday, huh?!” But really, it’s nothing abnormal. Slightly sad and pathetic that the team is tracking the successes of former Redskins who go on to bigger and better things, but again, nothing abnormal for @Redskins. Then I read the article it is promoting. And boy oh boy:

“Leaving the Redskins was the best thing to happen to my career. I wouldn’t be here if that hadn’t happened.”

“But things just didn’t work out and I was blessed to go to an even better organization with the Broncos. That was probably the best thing to happen for my career because I’ve been in a good place, a good city, and have worked for some of the best people in the world.”

So, to summarize, leaving the Redskins was the best thing to ever happen to Champ Bailey because he went to a better organization. Seems pretty cut and dry. Because that’s exactly what he said. But Gabe Hiatt, official Redskins team blogger, didn’t see it that way:

In fairness to Bailey, I think he was showing love to his employer of the past 10 years rather than throwing shade on the club that drafted him.

Kinda like how they claim the Redskins team name isn’t “throwing shade” on an entire race of people, you see. [/rimshot] [but seriously, they do this]

    Man, they really know how to bungle things don’t they. The mere fact they traded the best CB of his generation should shame the team enough not to ever bring it up. Instead, they promote it. Sigh.

    @Jules: That Gano thing is great, but my favorite part of this Champ stuff is not that he said it (because of course he did), but that the Redskins official site and Twitter promoted it. And then claimed he wasn’t shitting on the team.

    I am actually laughing out loud. God, these people are such morons, and they think we are too.

    i can’t wait ’till Champ is inducted in the HoF and The Danny adds his name to the official bio of REDSKINS Hall of Famers.

    The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has better spin control and a more realistic current world view then these people.

    This doesn’t relate to Champ – but I see that Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl had a sense of humor about the woes of a certain football team. Sound familiar?
