Clint Didier, a two-time Super Bowl champion with the Washington Redskins, on Friday said a small group of radicals are “changing the whole landscape of America” in reference to the NFL team’s name change.
Washington's team on Thursday announced it will go by the name "Washington Football Team" until a new name is chosen and that the old name will be officially retired ahead of the season's start.
“They got caught completely unprepared for this,” Didier said during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.”
“There’s going to be a lot of black-market material out there that is going to be produced now to fulfill the orders for the Redskins jerseys before they’re no longer available.”
Earlier this month, the NFL team and its owner, Daniel Snyder, announced the team would drop the "Redskins" nickname following pressure from fans and sponsors. FedEx, the team's stadium naming rights holder, demanded Snyder retire the name, which is considered an offensive slur toward Native Americans.
Didier said he would keep his Redskins jersey on this season.
“I’ve got my Redskins jersey on. This was the jersey I wore in the Super Bowl,” Didier said. “I have the hat. I was going to wear it but I put on my Trump hat because he is a great leader and we need four more years of Trump.”
