Update: I Shouldn't be Harassed at the Next Game for My Fire Vinny Shirt

From Matt Terl @ Redskins Blog:

However, your T-shirts are allowed as long as they don't feature profanity, and much of what reportedly went down Monday night with the confiscating of shirts should not have happened. Here's Donovan's direct quote to me:

"Our policy regarding messages on T-shirts and other clothing is simple: if it doesn't display profanity, it's fine," he said. "It's not our policy to regulate clothing based on the message it displays. We've heard the anecdotal reports that some stadium personnel were being over-zealous in their handling of this matter Monday night. We apologize to any fans who were inconvenienced as well as fans who were distressed by the reports, and we'll be working with all stadium employees to be certain that the policy is correctly enforced at future games at FedExField."

Ok, so here's the deal. I'll be wearing my Fire Vinny t-shirt (all it says is Fire Vinny, no profanity or obscene words) for the remainder of the games I attend this season. Skins are on the record. We'll see what happens.......
