But he has done some nice things for charity, including starting one for ST's daughter which I belive he donated $500,000. I would also say that our beloved former owner Jack Kent Cooke had some bad things said about him too.
Jack was dead when Snyder got the team. His son, the one who his father didn't leave the team to was the salty one.

Side note, I hate when former players bash the team say that they are speaking for the fans, F them. They aren't speaking for me. I used to listen to Lavar's I Hate Snyder show but I can't anymore. Sometimes it makes no sense, Riggins is getting to that point too. He was a good guy when he got a salary from this bad guy. I mean come the fuck on, like Riggins' career wasn't driven by fucking ego. Come the FUCK on man !

Also, as I watch this shitty interview. He of all people he is taking up for Jim Zorn, didn't he sit with a bottle and blast Zorn about a week ago ?

He is clearly trying to get a job. He was arrogant and lost in his comments especially that whole reason why Dan is a bad guy. He just comes off like a spoiled child that didnt get his candy bar.

Re: ESPN: Riggins calling out Zorn; and now Snyder

It's kind of funny ... Lil' Danny owns the team for ten years, has a losing record, has only three winning seasons, proves to the world year after year how NOT to run a franchise, -- then when the criticism hits an all time high, it takes just weeks for some to say that it's time to lay off Snyder.

Unbelievable.

It's the personal aspect of Riggo's comments that people have a problem with.

We all know that. But we've heard stories that JKC was hard to work. Actually I use to know some people that knew John Cooke and said he was a very nice person to be around. I agree though Riggins is out of line.

He should have just stuck with blasting him on football decisions

He lost me here with this rant, and G.Blache says dude hasnt even been there in 6 years. That just shows he stands on hollow ground on the non-obvious stuff we dont see.

OFF TOPIC: I just seen a commercial of Storm Chasers on Discovery Channel and two Dudes were rockin Skins jerseys in the middle of a Tornado. Might have to check out the show now.

Before I hand out too many kudos to Greg Blache on this one, there are two things that bother me:


1. When John Riggins had his radio show, there were times he broadcast from Redskins Park. So ... maybe Greg Blache has a bad memory or maybe Greg Blache "exaggerated a bit" when he said he never saw John Riggins at Redskins' Park...


2. If it is important for people to "know the truth", what might it take for this same truth-telling Greg Blache to come out of the locker room in Atlanta and explain to the same fans who are badmouthing his buddy, Danny Boy, why Blache's defense just got gashed for 166 yards and 2 TDs by Michael Turner. If truth-telling and setting the record straight is so important, how come he has been so selective about what he will tell the truth about this year?

Exactly. They called him out on Comcast over this very thing. If Blache is so anxious to get in front of the media, come out the locker room and answer for all of the non-tackling on your defense. I'm glad they called him out on that.
