I've been so out of touch with Skins news lately, this is pretty big news.

Yeah I was pretty surprised that it hadn't been posted by the time that I found out.

Re: Karl Swanson leaving the organization

There is a special circle in hell reserved for guys like Swanson.

Ironic how you get good PR by firing your PR guy...

Re: Karl Swanson leaving the organization

Thanks for nothing, ass-wipe! Don't let the door hit ya were the good lord split ya!

There are a few more up front in the top tier of ticket operations that also have to go. Nice to see some progress on getting some of this waste out.

What is the skinny on this guy? Why is he such a douche? Being the Skins PR guy under Snyder would be a shitty job with all the dumb acquisitions and firings/hirings every two years of HCs since he has been owner.

Re: Karl Swanson leaving the organization

Swanson was probably the brains behind suing club level ticket plan holders during a recession. The lack of people skills starts at the top with Snyder, but the likes of Swanson and Cerrato permeated that poison throughout the organization.

Re: Karl Swanson leaving the organization

Not wanting to turn this into a DS bashing thread but he's the one who could've put a stop to all the madness if he just came out and talked for himself every once in a while. Instead he hides like a little baby and had Donavan, Swanson and Cerrato talk for him. One thing I really like about Jerry Jones is even though he holds like 10 titles he never ever hides behind anyone. For someone that is so brillant in the business world, DS sure has 0 people skills, or any clue how to talk with the media.

Well Snyder tried speaking early on in his ownership, but got blasted for being too involved and too in the media. So he stopped. Plus, contrary to popular belief, Snyder was never the General Manager of the team like Jerry Jones is. More often than not you never hear from the team owner, that doesn't mean they're hiding like a little baby
