The Commanders have once again angered their fanbase.

Earlier this week, many believed the Commanders were going to honor the late Sean Taylor with a statue inside FexEx Field when they said they would unveil a “permanent installation” of the safety before Sunday’s game.

“Sean’s life was tragically cut short but his impact continues to reverberate through our Burgundy & Gold family,” said Co-Owners and Co-CEOs Dan and Tanya Snyder. “This Sunday, on the 15th anniversary of his passing, we honor one of our greats and his legacy by unveiling a permanent installation, so his memory is always with us when we take the field on gameday.”

Apparently the “permanent installation” ended up being a mannequin wearing Taylor’s jersey and not a statue.

Fans were absolutely furious that Taylor didn’t get a statue inside of the stadium.
