Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

I think I a lot of the posters have similar views on this.

No matter what you say about how Snyder is much different, he still doesn't get it. If he did he wouldn't be responding to these kinds of articles.

Well I don't know how much time he spent, but a lot of research was pretty poor

That stuff is not BS in the article. All of the examples given have new articles cited. Additionally, any real redskins fan can read those facts given and see immediately that it was something that Snyder would do.

A lot of the information is either simply not true or misleading.

Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

I don't think the accuracy or inaccuracies in the article are the point. Dan adds fuel to the fire by acting this way. Trying to sue and get somebody fired is bringing NATIONAL attention to a small local story that is dead and buried in the past. Dan brought it back to life. Why? Ego? Dumb ego.

Well I don't know how recently the call was made by Donovan to the paper's parent company. And I don't know that they'll actually sue, they just threaten to. It seems to me like Snyder was pushed over the edge one too many times by false information. But I agree he should have let it just blow over. Dave McKenna is not someone worth wasting your time over.

Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

Until this team starts winning on a consistent basis, DS will get shit from everyone. Honestly he deserves some of it, we have been a damn joke since he bought the team

Some, but not all of it. And we were a joke even before he bought the team. We've been a losing franchise more often than not. We didn't go from Super Bowl champs in 1992 to Snyder owning the team. There were many years in between of poor play on the field and poor decision off it.

Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

SS Snyder is a smart man. Let's not make excuses for him about how he was led one way or another. He hasn't really matured as a owner for the Skins. If he has, then we are taking hella tiny baby steps.

Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

Even if you took the win loss record and poor FO management out of the equation, my whole opinion of Dan Snyder fell in the toilet when he tried sue season ticket holders who fell into hard times due to the recession and defaulted on their season ticket obligations. Why squeeze people that have fallen on hard times?
Plus those season ticket holders give up their rights to the seats and Dan sells the seats to someone else. No harm no foul. It seemed really greedy and money hungry to sue them. That was a really poor business decision and just dumb.

Re: Snyder Camp Upset!!

#1- I really don't know what Snyder has as far as a case. He would have to prove there were damages. How has the article damaged the Redskins? Loss of revenue? DS can't get a loan? DS can't get the quality coaches or players he would like?

#2- Snyder simply should have let it pass. It looked like an upset news reporter from the WP simply venting. Especially since DS has alienated the WP from getting any fresh news since he has been pissed with them for so long. Now that it has resurfaced with DS's intent to possibly sue the WP it makes DS again look like an idiot.

#3- I think DS would have been better served to have contacted the WP exec's and basically worked out some kind of agreement. The WP writers get first crack at some inside info as long as they stop their personal attacks on the Redskins owner. But everything is a two way street. You run a newspaper and it likes to run personal attacks on people then you have to expect your news men will either start getting alienated or cut off completely.

I'm not saying there isn't any truth to any or all of what the reporter wrote, just saying if you want to be one of the leading news agencies with the lates info on one of the top sports organizations in your area then you need to use a little common sense. The WP, I feel, needs more unbiased writers and apparently better editors to weed this type of crap out. Heck the writer wanted to write his little attack article he could have posted it on his own web page instead of either creating or expanding the rift between the two companies.
