The recent New York Times article
It's going to take much more than an official statement from the team to help us make sense of this all, but we are starting to see the level of damage control the organization is doing in the wake of this mess.
Reportedly, the team just removed a "who's hotter" feature from its official website.
The @Redskins removed the "who's hotter" feature from their website soon after we published @JulietMacur's article on Wednesday. Here's a screen grab: https://t.co/gNNDUkKRUQ pic.twitter.com/MyKhiue4bw— NYT Sports (@NYTSports) May 3, 2018
Why this was even a feature to begin with is extremely puzzling considering grading women head-to-head in this manner is not only controversial but also harmful.
It's also certainly surprising for a storied franchise that has existed since 1932 to have approved a hyperlink like that on its official site that is supposed to be presentable for all ages and fans.
There is still plenty of more investigating to go regarding this case, but obviously, it's not looking good at all for the Redskins organization at this point.
