re: Nice Article on Snyder

Winning is still the best way of maximizing revenue.

I have no doubt Snyder wants to win. His methods of getting there are definitely in question, but now with Allen and Shanahan in place he seems to (at least for now) have conceded this his way wasn't working.

welcome to the board though man!
I agree. Norv, Danny, and Vinny are my personal Axis of Evil. Skins are like my brother, I can bag on them, but outsiders beware.

Thanks for the welcome.

re: Nice Article on Snyder

My criticism of Dan Snyder has always been football related I have never said one single word about his heart or how he handles his family.I know of one story to be 100% true and that was what turned me against him(as an owner).

Is it the one about him firing the guy who asked for the day off for his son's birthday or something? I think you're the one that keeps rehashing that one.

From what I have observed there are two ways to generate tons of revenue in the NFL, the first is to actually invest in your team in a rather intelligent way and build a team over a few years, and continually build on that even once you have a winner, or you can try the "chaos" model where you just keep everything in total chaos with the signing of high priced free agents, always changing coaches, etc with the win now attitude, keeping the fans hooked that the next regime will bring home the Lombardi. Snyder, Jones, and Al Davis have chosen the latter and have yet to produce a consistent winner. We will see if Shanny and Allen can do the job, but thus far they are fitting into the win now "Chaos" model perfectly. I bet in reality Snyder isn't all that concerned about getting a Lombardi as he is of raising the revenue stream and he can do that easier with the "Chaos" model.


Folks here seem to believe everything they read - - when the article says something they prefer to believe. However, when an article says something that they prefer not to be correct - - say like Albert Haynesworth being a lazy slug who might not play all that much in Week 1 - - then the author is a douchbag and doesn't know his ass from second base.


The events of the last decade would indcate that Danny Boy Snyder is more passionate about increasing revenues and net positive cash flow from the team than about winning. Part of the evidence for that would be that positive cash flow from the Redskins is estimated to be up by more than 80% in the last decade while the team has been a loser over the last decade. And now that Jerry Jones has his new stadium that can command much higher prices than FedEx can because FedEx is pretty much a dump, Danny Boy is going to have to focus even more of his attention on the revenue streams so that JJ doesn't beat him out as the highest grossing team/stadium in the league.


Actually that is good. He focuses on the $$$ so much that he loses focus on the team. He knows how to make money; he has no idea at all how to run a football operation.

There are far worse owners than Snyder. Talk to people who are close to him, and I mean close as in they have close access to him, and they'll a.most all tell you-even those who have blasted him like Brian Mitchell-that he's very passionate about the Redskins and he's done plenty of good for the team, for the community, for his players.

His problem, as I've said over and over again is that he grew up a rabid fan of the Skins and struggled early on at least to separate the fan from the owner. Think of all the stupid, idiotic, moronic, comments that are made here everyday and then imagine you then had the power to suddenly act on the impulse of your idiotic post and do something about it? We need to trade Haynesworth for Sage Rosenfels ASAP, and throw in a 3rd rounder if that's what it takes!!! Dumb, right? But hey, whatever you're a fan, you're fanatical. It's your right as a fan to say some stupid things about the team you're passionate about. But now imagine you actually had the power to make that trade? Scary thought

That, and he listened to the wrong people when he first took over and that screwed him over for several years.

Re: Nice Article on Snyder

I dunno, doesn't Snyder charge "entry fees" whenever he can?

I think you are right. While he may be an idiot in terms of his ability to diagnose how a good football team should be run, he is a true fan and furthermore, has done a great deal of good for this community through his charitable endeavors.
