Redskins will give Super Bowl rings to replacement players from 1987 team

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins will present replacement players from 1987 with Super Bowl rings.

The team announced Wednesday it would honor the work of the replacement players who went 3-0 during the NFL strike. Washington went on to finish 11-4, win the NFC East and beat the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Owner Dan Snyder says the replacement players' "contributions are part of Redskins history and represent an integral reason why a Lombardi Trophy from the 1987 campaign resides in our facility." The Virginia General Assembly passed a resolution Tuesday commending the replacement players on the 1987 team.

Disgusting. They should not honor scabs. The real players on the team should protest.

The scabs are the only reason they were there. Give them rings.

I'm MAGA, so.... Do your worst.

Why did it take them so long?

Even the ball boys get SB rings.

The NFL pays for the cost of 150 rings for the winning team.

But any team can buy more. Teams can give them out to whoever they please.

I was kind of disappointed with Joe Gibbs in that. He spoke glowingly of the replacements until he was asked if they deserved rings. Then he basically refused to answer.

100% agreed. Crossed a picket line, don’t deserve a ring. Glad my coach isn’t a scab

Yeah, I doubt this happens without the ESPN documentary. Those players deserved a ring long before now.

Cassely said the replacements didn’t deserve rings either.

Simple question: did the NFLPA members of the Redskins refuse their rings, and their player bonuses, for that SB?

Since I am certain they didn't, then the people that got them there deserve the rings as well.

Jack Kent Cook still wielded some control of the team from his office in Hell

the regular team that year was 8-4. they would have been just fine without a strike that year

we should ask if the 13-2 49ers and 12-3 Saints would have had their home field advantage without the replacement players
