Smoot... did you ever attend law school???? Were you on debating team in high school???

Excuse me, Rich, but Snyder took over the team in the middle of the '99 season and didn't start putting his stamp on the team until 2000. So, technically speaking, the Snyder regime started in 2000, not 1999.
You're sinking fast, son. He bought the team in May of 1999.

As Smoot said... he purchased the team in May of 99... I will guarantee once his $$ was in... then the buck stopped with him:

Daniel Snyder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Now... how knowledgeable do you look now (not that I am a Einstein... but I am not claiming to be).

Okay, I got the dates and playoff win total wrong. I admit it. But, if you re-read my post, nowhere in there do I say that I, personally, know more than the average Redskins fan. I'm clearly quoting what other fans have said, what I've seen at games I've attended recently and how it, to me, appears to run counter to what announcers have said about the fan base in the past. There's no need to attack me here. We cheer for the same team.

Actually, this topic was started as someone claiming that the average Redskin fan doesn't know as much as they used to... and by you pointing that out to us, you are in fact saying that you know more than the current crop of fans.

Yes, with the spread of the public access via the internet, the people who do not know as much have a larger platform (as has been pointed out)... but your premise indicated that you know more than the current average fan base (or you would not have started this thread)....

This is almost comical now.

Again, if you re-read my post, I NEVER said that I, personally, know more than the current fan base. I'm just sharing observations. I'm not trying to step on anyone toes and I'm not trying to say that I know more than anyone else out there.

Actually... your original post said that some fans make you scratch your head... the entire overall theme was directed that you know more than these people... which is why you started the thread... would you like my attorney Mr. SmootSmack and myself to disect your entire 1st post for you???

But you questioned the fan base as a whole, and by doing that you are insinuating that you are more knowledgeable, and then you proceed to botch some pretty basic facts.

Sorry but that's funny.

I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. I just gave this thread 5 stars.

I didn't get the impression the OP was stating he knew more than the average fan. I took his points as his personal observations and nothing more. You can agree or disagree.

However, you guys got hung up on one miniscule mistake and ran with it. Like having one more playoff win in 10 years really makes a difference. He conceded that one specific point. You win. Good for you.

I have no problem calling out people when they make outrageous statements or assertions. I don't get the need for mocking people. Maybe you guys are just bored today.

At the very least he's insinuating that he's on the knowledgable side of the fence

Re: What Has Happened to the Redskins' Fan Base?

And it gets worse...

The Redskins W/L record under Snyder is 68-76, not 70-79.
