Snyder Treats Bahamian Redskins Fan
 
Pretty cool story

[QUOTE]A little less than two weeks ago at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va., Mr. Snyder had waiting for me a cardboard box with Pops' name on it filled with every Redskins trinket and collectors' item imaginable, including an extra-large burgundy and gold football jersey # 24 autographed by Shawn Springs.[/QUOTE]

Great story. I was at Redskins.com today and noticed the links to the charities for the Suffolk tornado victims. I called one of them, who had no idea it was up, and they were very greatful for the Redskins organization putting it out there. I wouldn't have known about this organization supporting the tornado victims if not for the link.

It's always perplexing to me to see how quick the Snyder bashers pile on to every perceived mis-step or fault but never recognize the really good things Snyder does. I wonder what spin the Snyder bashers will put on this story....

Watch this thread drop off the main page in a few days meanwhile the Riddick thread will rack up the posts.

He only did it because he wants to buy the island. He's all about money.

That's probably something they'd say. I remember when I went to the Redskins luncheon a couple of years ago, he was at the table and I told him I thought he was doing a great job and he reached out to shake my hand and I was nearly grabbed by the security. He waved them off but I told him it was ok but keep on doing what he was doing and eventually we'll start winning.

It's good to read about the good that he does because we ALWAYS get the bad.

Well, in fairness, there's not much to talk about here. How many times can you say 'nice story' or 'good gesture'. So if it does fall off the main page quickly I'm not sure it is some kind of statement about how everyone is out to get Dan Snyder.

I love these kinds of stories. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :)

How weird is it that Coach Gibbs was there when he made the delivery? I wish Pops could have met him. That would have been so awesome.

Well they won't put any spin because they will ignore it.

This is a nice story, sounds like he got a good deal. It's nice to hear from time to time about good things people do instead of always focusing on the negative that comes out of the press.

If Snyder really cared, he would have sent the reporter on Redskins One with Jason Campbell in tow to throw some passes at Pops. But he didn't....heartless bastard

How many times can you say Snyder sucks or rehash moves from 2000?

People seem to have no problem with that.

It was a nice story up until the end. I'm not bashing Gibbs or Snyder...I'm bashing the writer. For one he could have milked it into two stories, but I kinda got the feeling his adgenda was to get the story of Gibbs personal issues out there. I'm reading along and thinking what a wonderful story about Snyder and WHAM it turns into a story about Gibbs wife and her surgery.
