10 Years of Snyder-AP Interview

A pretty decent read, nothing too revealing but it's a look at Dan that we don't usually see. It's pretty commonplace to bash him nationally and locally for some of his early mistakes but a true look at his tenure displays some progress.

Re: 10 Years of Snyder-AP Interview

Geez, Snyder is only 2 years older than me... Man for all the mistakes I made over the past 10 years, I can't imagine if I had been running the Skins too. Granted, I am not Snyder, but at 34, that's incredibly young to be the owner of such a team. Even more reason to believe its gonna get better.

Re: 10 Years of Snyder-AP Interview

I thought this was an awesome read. I'm glad he seems to be maturing some, I hope that comes through with the decisions he makes in regards to the Skins...as in, "don't fire Zorn if this season isn't a trip to the NFC Championship game."

Re: 10 Years of Snyder-AP Interview

Also, didn't we just try and trade the house and kitchen sink for Jay Cutler? I don't think he learned that from Gibbs. Every time you buy into the Snyder has changed line you wake up to read about us trying to trade two number one picks for Chad Johnson, or something else crazy. So I'm not convinced he's learned his lesson completely.

Not with Dan actually sitting down with the press, he's been hiding from them because most of them bash him. So it's nice to hear from him a little bit.

Bit in the end it's a lot of fluff. Bring on the games already.

I feel like that for a lot of articles and quotes.

It was decent article but it was just noise nothing behind it. Did you expect him to say he has not learned anything in the last ten years?

I think DS is a good owner but I still beleive he puts making money ahead of winning. Each year he makes a flashy free agent signing drums up huge amounts of "hope" in the fans and then collects his wins ($$$). Probaly true for 100% of professional sports but Danny is one of the best at it.

He does an interview every year around this time I swear, I'll dig for last year's version.

Edit - here's one:

Meh, there's a lot more lucrative businesses out there. If he was in it just for the money he wouldn't be running a NFL team, and he certainly wouldn't spend money the way he does.

I think his last interview was in early April with Doc Walker (and Cerrato) to talk about the past off-season and the upcoming draft. He never (or very very rarely) speaks during the season but the off-season is different.

I think the perception of him is far from the reality. And he's undoubtedly grown as an owner and as a person in the past decade.

Hmmm... ok lets say he signs Albert to $100m (which he did) how much money does he make off that signing. Think jersey sales, ticket slaes, etc. It gets fans pumped up for the upcoming season which translates into dollars. I am not saying he signed AH just to make money but he sure didn't do it to lose money.

How so? Not disputing your info & insight, just wonder specifically what you mean. I think your statement here is at least a little ironic, considering that he's built his wealth w/marketing & pr businesses, yet he seems to be TERRIBLE at pr & marketing w/his own image!

I'm not saying he should be out in front of a mic all the time, but JLC had a good point about J. Jones. JJ does talk to the press more than needed, but overall he's accountable to the public & doesn't shy away from speaking to the public. I think Snyder's reluctance to talk to the press kind of fuels his reputation as a petulant, behind the scenes filthy rich dude that doesn't care what the fans think about his business decisions cause he knows he can sell out fedex w/a 5-11 Ole ball coach team.

Merch and ticket sales are going to be pretty consistent regardless of who is wearing a Skins jersey.

How much additional revenue do you think could be directly tied to Haynesworth being a Redskin? Would that revenue ever justify the price of the contract, let alone show in a profit?

Yeah I know there are a lot of people who think "Snyder's the GM anyway, why doesn't he just give himself the title and stop pretending like he's not."

I think the perception of him is that he's an overbearing owner to the point that he's even telling Zorn what plays to run and who to play. But the reality is that he's just like most other owners. The buck stops with him, but it takes many steps before it even gets to him.

How many owners really talk to the press during the season anyway? And what does he have to gain from it?

IDK but I find it hard to beleive someone is not tracking the ROI on a $100 million purchase.
