Advocates for the deaf are suing the Redskins to add closed-captioning to scoreboards and video monitoring.

The points an accusing finger at the Redskins pass rush.

Families, teams, organizations, nations; when adversity hits, the strong ones pull together and get stronger. The weak ones point fingers and fall apart. Pull together team & fans!
