Commanders’ fans did the wave at FedEx Field: Ron Rivera noticed

You can’t escape the new energy surrounding the Washington Commanders since Josh Harris officially purchased the team last month. Players, coaches and alumni have noticed the difference, which was never more evident at the open practices for training camp this summer.

But, the Commanders will still play their games at FedEx Field. Often viewed as the worst NFL stadium and it’s not close, but apparently that energy has crept into Washington’s home stadium.

Late in Saturday’s preseason finale against the Cincinnati Bengals, fans at FedEx Field were doing the wave.

This was one fan’s reaction.

Washington head coach Ron Rivera noticed and he enjoyed it.

“S–t, they did the wave,” Rivera said. “I haven’t seen the wave here….in….you know, this is the first time, so it was really cool. It really was, again, there is some energy, some excitement and hopefully we can feed off that, build off that and it can help us.”

Rivera was then asked if he “pro-wave.”

“Oh yeah, shoot, that was awesome.”

Rivera is excited for Week 1 and the new, positive energy surrounding the franchise.
