No, it's not.
For US it's about winning, for him it's about profit and team likability. Both are HUGE.
If you can produce a team that earns 1.6 billion and wins 5 games a year you're doing something right.
What would you rather have in your business. A team that wins 13 games and produces 800 mil, or a team that wins 5 games and produces 1.6 Bil?

Of course, if we won 5 games a year forever, there would be fewer fans to spend money...then again, we haven't done squat in a decade and a half and we still have the biggest and best following.

Actually the both of you are wrong. According to Forbes the Washington Redskins are second and it ain't to the New York Yankees. It's to Manchester United who are valued at $1.453 bil where the Redskins are valued at $1.423 bil and the Yankees are at $1.2 bil.

Re: Snyder ranked as league's 5th best owner

dan synder has shown he wants a winner the thing is we aint winning and the part that gets in the way is he is making a profit out of it ,heck i want to win at all cost..yes we still need a GM.......

do i like the danny a part of me does but the other part outweighs that until he proves to me he wants to win a superbowl with football people running the show and he is getting there..it,s just taking him a little longer than he expected...

I like that he's willing to spend his money to get a winner, but we all know he is raking it in... He is supposedly completely commited to winning. He needs to put the ego away and learn that big splash offseason moves don't win you a LOMBARDI!!!

#5 is too high.He needs a ring or two before he reaches that echelon... Which may not happen until he kicks Vinny to the curb and hires a real GM if gibbs doesn't stick aroudn after he's done coaching. Man - I hope he stays with the Skins in the FO... maybe he'll recognize we need a GM or REAL personnel guy that sees value in the draft.

I also don't like the stunts Snyder has pulled with these expensive tickets and BS seats with obstructed views that he sells. PATHETIC.

Oh yah - how about charging fans for Training Camp a few years ago... What a piece of work he is... The Danny can kiss my Fanny!

Re: Snyder ranked as league's 5th best owner

While it may be true that The Danny has deep pockets and really wants to win, he has made some questionable decisions other than not hiring a GM that worry me. When he acquired the film production company of Tom Cruise, who is a certifiable Scientology nut-case, and then acquired a string of failing Six-Flags amusement parks, I really began to think that maybe he is slipping in his ability to make astute business decisions. Mr. Snyder is probably consulting with his attorneys as we speak as he most likely will be on the wrong end of a lawsuit stemming from an attack by several Six-Flags over Georgia employees on a 19-year old that was seriously injured.

I 100% disagree. He bought the skins for 800mil, and he has made us worth 1.423 BIL. That's a little less than double what he bought it for. That's a huge increase.
Yes, we are concerned about winning, but as a business, and that is what an owner cares about, he should be ranked higher.
The SKins are ranked as THE best team (financially) in all of America. That's huge.

Well I could go on and on... so we might as well agree to disagree. Snyder may have turned us into the most valuable sports franchise in the US of A, but he has turned us into the laughing stock of the NFL. He has proven time and time again that his EGO is too big for the good of the on-field success of his football team. He can't keep his big non-football knowing a$$ out of the football operations... he's great on the business side, I don't think anybody will argue that... but if you're telling me that only the bottomline determines the success of an NFL owner, then I'd say you must be getting a cut of what he's making... Because as a fan, if this BS keeps on snowballing from him and his cronies, there will be a lot of fans that will tell him to kiss off... For those reasons I hate him....

For this reason I like him - He's got potential, but he hasn't shown any clue about how to turn this ship around and bring back the glory... other than bringing Gibbs back... I'll give him that much.

He needs to stay the hell out of the football operations, except for agreeing no how much to he's willing to spend... And that hasn't worked yet either, because he'll overspend on anybody... We need some sound football knowhow running the Personel.

Furthermore-He's got more money that anybody knows what the hell to do with... I don't think any of us could give to shitz about how much money the skins are worth and how rich our owner is... We want a respectable, stable and most of all successful product on the field.

Re: Snyder ranked as league's 5th best owner

Its not always about making money. Little Danny number one at that. How about putting a winner on the damn field sometime. Not just twice in 7 years. The first one he had nothing to do with in 1999. That what makes a good owner wins and loses.
