Washington Commanders fans are in a pretty bad place right now. The team has dropped three straight games after a 1-0 start and sit three games out of first place in the surprisingly formidable NFC East after four weeks. Not only that, but Washington’s head coach continues to show zero urgency by pointing out a list of positives after every defeat, otherwise known as moral victories.

Truth be told, fans should’ve known ahead of time Washington was headed for its third straight loss when Dan Snyder was spotted breaking bread with Jerry Jones before kickoff. The under-siege owner was on the field chatting it up and laughing with Jones before and after Dallas laid a 25-10 beatdown on his team.

This marked Snyder’s first public appearance since he dodged an in-person interview regarding the investigation into the franchise’s toxic culture.

Fresh off a rebrand and repping new uniforms for Sunday, you’d think Snyder would do the bare minimum and rep some burgundy or gold for the game. Maybe show a little team spirit in hostile territory, right? Wrong. With the Commanders playing on the road at AT&T Stadium, Snyder wore Cowboys colors to the game.

Just look at some of the replies to Washington’s Instagram post.

Dan Snyder wears navy blue to Commanders-Cowboys, leaves AT&T Stadium in motorcade after team’s loss.

Tell your fans you don’t care about winning without telling them you don’t care about winning. Wearing the colors of maybe Washington’s biggest rival in said team’s stadium is insulting as it gets for a fan base that’s desperate to root for a winning team.

If you can believe it, Snyder showing Cowboys pride wasn’t the biggest takeaway from the owner’s surprise visit to Jerry World. After the Commanders lost the game, the Washington Post’s Nicki Jhabvala caught a mind-blowing video of Snyder leaving AT&T Stadium (apparently under the stadium?) in a motorcade.

Why is there a motorcade at all? Is there not a better use of local police and public resources than making sure Snyder doesn’t get caught in traffic?

Of course, this is par for the course for Snyder’s trips to Arlington. Back in December of 2019, Snyder left AT&T Stadium in a fleet of black SUVs. Then-president Bruce Allen left the stadium alone and was fired that Monday after 10 years on the job.

What more can you say at this point? Intentional or not — we’ll let the fans decide that one — Snyder continues stooping to new lows to embarrass the franchise. This marked Snyder’s most prominent public appearance in months.

You just knew he was going to make it all about himself.
