WASHINGTON — Su’a Cravens put one of the Redskins’ longest running sponsors on blast after an apparent bad experience.

It took a little more than a year for their relationship, which began only days after Cravens was drafted 53rd overall, to sour.

For years, Eastern Motors has featured star players for the Skins — and other area athletes — in its iconic TV advertisements, solidifying itself as an institution in the local automotive industry. In that respect, Eastern Motors is somewhat synonymous with all of the local sports franchises.

Seeing a local athlete go after Eastern Motors publicly, as Cravens did, caught many, many people off guard — many, many of whom feared the repercussions Cravens could suffer as a result.
