Redskins Fans Collecting Contributions to the Dan Snyder Embarrassment Fund - Michael Tunison - The Sporting Blog - Sporting News


The Washington Redskins have been run into the ground. But who is to blame? Here are some problems that we've outlined along with a solution:

Problem: “Danny Boy” has mismanaged OUR team for the last decade and counting….

Problem: “Danny Boy” loves to make headlines and sell jerseys by signing big name high priced free agent players normally way past their prime…..

Problem: “Danny Boy” has signed, interfered with, and fired so many coaches during his 10 year ownership quality coaches no longer want to work for OUR team…

Problem: “Danny Boy” has put trust and confidence in one of the worst GM/Operations Manager in the league (Vinny Boy Cerrato) for 9 out of 10 years…

Problem: “Danny Boy” cheers and claps his hands congratulating OUR team after a win. After a loss he turns his back to OUR team, a gesture normally reserved for 3rd graders and tribal leaders in third world counties….

Problem: “Danny Boy” spends waayyyyyy too much time with Tom Cruise

Solution: Request that Danny Boy sell OUR team. We need to send a clear message that Danny Boy’s interference with OUR team will not be tolerated. Danny Boy needs to step back hire a competent General Manager and stop meddling with OUR team. He needs to go away, either by selling OUR team or by disappearing and staying out of the operations. We urge every fan to stop buying licensed merchandise from Danny Boy. Until Danny Boy is no longer involved in operations, or better yet no longer the owner PLEASE DO NOT BUY TEAM MERCHANDISE from Danny Boy.

The goal is to raise $7,750 to place an ad on ten (10) DC Metro busses and propose OUR “Solution” to all residents of the District and Fans of OUR Team. The signs will be approximately 13 feet by 2.5 feet and read “Sell OUR Team Danny Boy”. While we are at it lets also raise $500 dollars for charity benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and send a Certified Letter to Danny Boy asking him to match OUR donation to charity.

The costs associated with doing this are as follows:

$7,000 – Ten (10) DC Metro Bus Ads to run for a period of 4 weeks (to be purchased through CBS Outdoor, http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...cbsoutdoor.com)
$500 – Twelve (12) Signs to be printed and transported to DC Metro Bus Lines (to be purchased through CSI, CSI :: All Print Great & Small)
$500 – Donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA Donation By Mail)
$250 – PayPal takes approximately 3% fee for transactions
$8,250 – Total Amount Needed

Here’s the reason we are using kapipal.com:

You can use your credit card or PayPal account to donate the minimum of $5 or as much as you like. Kapipal.com is a third party and is in no way related to us. Unlike Danny Boy we don’t want your money and we are not looking to make one penny off of this. We are just looking to raise a couple bucks for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and request OUR team be managed competently. Any proceeds will benefit charity.

We have room on the sign for a small amount of "notable donations". If you are willing to make a large donation ($500 plus) and would like your name or company recognized on the ad please contact us at: sellourteamdannyboy@gmail.com

Also, if we don't get close to the $8250 we will refund all donations. I think that this is a no-brainer and that with the thousands of Redskins Fans out there we will easily reach $8250; however, if we don't get $8250 within 30 days every dollar will be refunded.

Please write or call with any questions:

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

First off I want to encourage anyone and everyone to copy and paste the above post to the other message boards, blogs, facebook, twitter, myspace, craigslist, wherever... Everyone has been talking about doing something but actions have been pretty light so far. Hopefully this will encourage people to donate, start their own idea, or at least stop buying merchandise.

Its about to be Monday Night maybe we can get people to talk about this? I made the minimum donation 5 dollars in order to get as many people as involved as possible. Please feel free to donate more. Worst case scenario we make some money for a very deserving charity.

I am routing for the Skins as much as anyone and hope we can turn this season around, but maybe we can turn the franchise around too. Maybe im a dreamer....

So call your sports radio stations, tell your friends, donate some money, email your email buddies, tip your bartender, and lets make this successful....

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

By disparaging the owner's appearances in this public protest you are weakening your credibility and come off as a fan who has a personal vendetta.

Also your demand is just not feasible. If you want to be effective and reflect more of the public sentiment you should lessen the demand and the personal attack.

Nice to see people are spending their time and fund raising efforts wisely. I could probably think of a few thousand more worthy causes.

Kudos to you at least for using it to try to raise some money for battling muscular dystrophy

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

Hey, I think its a good idea. No need to bash the guy of the get-go. Obviously there are other better causes, but it depends what you are passionate about. If you truly care about cancer prevention research, go donate to a fund now; dont just bash this.

For the record I wont contribute to bus ads, but its not a bad idea. Better than just bitching on a forum.

Do you really think he makes more money by signing and paying these players more then he would if the skins were winning football games? I'd bet right now sales are at there lowest sense he has owned the team.

Maybe it's me, but I hate when people call him Danny Boy.

Just realized we left that out. We are updating that info right now. If it doesnt work out we will refund everyones money back to them less PayPal expenses, if any. This is also true with credit card payments as they are technically made through PayPal.
