Snyder's "apology"

CLINTON, Md. (AP) -- Dan Snyder says his Washington Redskins have "let everyone down."
In a rare, in-season interview with reporters, Snyder said at a charity event that the team is embarrassed by its 2-5 start and hopes to turn things around soon.
Snyder has been the subject of much ire from some fans. Signs critical of the owner have been confiscated at recent home games as part of the team's new crackdown on all signs and banners at the stadium.
Snyder was asked about the sign ban but did not address the issue. Regarding the fans, he said: "We've let everyone down, including ourselves, and we know that and we're just apologetic."

I don't know if I truly consider that an "apology". But I guess its a start. Baby steps....

Re: Snyder's "apology"

If he was truly apologetic he would fire VC as a token of his honesty in intending to turn this team around "soon."

Re: Snyder's "apology"

Also, what does VC actually do at this point? Is his job so important that he could not be fired or if he was someone would have to replace him immediatly or the team would have trouble?

Re: Snyder's "apology"

I really don't consider that an apology, all he's saying is what everyone else has been saying. Nothing apologetic.

Re: Snyder's "apology"

I don't think he needs to apologize. Does anyone really think he's happy with losing?

I know he's not happy, but he isn't just some guy in the stands though! He's the man that makes all of the decisions. He can't wash his hands of this.

Re: Snyder's "apology"

He doesn't owe any apology. I don't need to hear from him, I don't care if he never speaks another word as long as he is owner. Talk means nothing, all he has to do is take action. He could tell us to go fuck ourselves for all I care, just take action to make the team better. As long as he does that, that's the only "apology" I need

Re: Snyder's "apology"

If he wants to apologize then he should reimburse the fans that saw the team lose against KC and Philly at home.

Re: Snyder's "apology"

Well I'm glad he at least spoke, I actually enjoy watching interviews with him... but I want my apology after the season, when we start building a football team the right way.

Re: Snyder's "apology"

It's kinda nice, that it's a bit of a positive. I'm tired of hearing jokes about my team. Hey, we're bad, we're going to fix this thing. That's what i want to hear.

But, yes, actions speak alot louder. If DS wants to fix this thing, then fix it. It's broke. Fix it. We're tired of seeing the same ole crap. DS wants to win. I like that. DS is not stupid and I like that.

If he keeps VC on payroll much after January I might change my mind.
