Darrell Armstrong couldn't pass up the chance.
And Avery Johnson couldn't let it pass without a fine. Armstrong was asked to give a pregame Christmas wish to fans at American Airlines Center Sunday night and he couldn't resist trumpeting his favorite NFL team.
After wishing the crowd a safe and happy holiday, Armstrong added: "And how about those Redskins?"
The point guard has been a Washington fan since he was a kid.
After the game, Johnson divulged that the backup point guard was fined $1,000 for his impromptu support of the Redskins, who beat the Cowboys 35-7 on Sunday, severely denting their playoff hopes. "We were all sitting around the TV rooting for the Cowboys," Johnson said. "So we're going to call our friends over there to see where they want the money sent." Also, in the locker room before the game, Josh Howard (a true Carolina Panthers fan) added that his team was "going to finish the job next week," in regard to the Cowboys' playoff hopes.
I have been a Mavericks fan since 1980 and a Redskin fan since 1973, this is the first time that I have been disapointed with them for a very classless act.
Now for the Redskin fan news!!!!! 35-7 over the crackboys and we won 2x this year over them!!!!. I was listening to the 1310 ticket from dallas and I was just so happy because the whinning and crying from all of the crackboys fans was just soooooooooo great.
