Snyder is coming off as an owner who isn't confident enough in himself and his image to let something as minor as this go and slip into nobody cares-ville where it would be if ego maniac himself would stop bringing it into national media spot light. His ego is a huge balloon.
This would be all relevant if our team were the Dallas Cowboys, where the owner is also the GM. As far as I'm concern, Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan run this team. From a PR perspective, sure, this is not that great, but it is not also the end of the world as other people make it out to be. In the end, business partners will look at profits when looking to partnering up with the team, and the Washington Redskins are a very profitable institution.

I think Dan Snyder has given Redskins fans and Redskins ticket holders a lot to complain about, and rightfully so. But as I said, I don't think this directly has to do with the Redskins.

Do I agree with what he is doing? Not really. Do I need to rant about it like it is affecting me directly? Nope. Is this going to affect the way the Redskins play? And no.

Well, whether you like to admit it or not, Daniel Snyder is the Redskins and the Redskins is Daniel Sndyer. They are one in the same even though the actions done by one doesn't directly relate to the other.

When the franchise suffers as much as it's have, you have only one place to look at. The top. Quite simply, we've been through different GMs, coaches, players, systems, and the one thing that's constant this whole time has been the owner. That would narrow the problem down to being with the owner and the decisions he's making. You can't think positive about your club when the man in charge is making horrible decisions on the side. They are indirectly related whether you see it or not.

It's not like Dan Snyder has this switch that goes ON- I'll be a complete twit in public and other businesses OFF- I'll be the best owner in the NFL. I think this has been shown over the course of his tenure with the Skins. Chances are, if he's making horrible decisions in in public relations and other businesses, then there is a huge chance he's making horrible decisions with the Skins as well.

That's why they are one and the same.

If he makes such horrible decisions (in general), how does he stay so wealthy?

You want to look at an owner that makes horrible decisions that directly affect the team? Take a look at the Maloof brothers in Sacramento.

Snyder has made terrible football decisions that have affected this team. But as I said, I don't really see this particular issue with him suing the paper as a football decision that is affecting the Redskins.

Name me one thing that he's been successful with since buying the Redskins? The reason he's still wealthy is because he owns the franchise of a loyal fan base. Had this been a Johnny Rockets, he'd been broke a long time ago.

Therein lies the rub for many of those who are so quick to target Snyder for suing the City Paper. While it is true that some would blame him for a cold, rainy day at FedEx, the connection between his management style as an owner and the product on the field over the last decade is largely undisputed even among the level-headed. As such, some might see reflected in his decision to sue the City Paper the same rashness and brashness that has accompanied the decisions he's made for the team.

While I agree that the outcome of this particular suit will not affect the team, one could only be surprised by the response on this board and elsewhere to his lawsuit and his public relations effort to defend it if one believes that it is simply not possible to draw any similarity whatsoever between the decision-making style he's exhibited as an owner with his decision to bring this suit.

Re: Snyder writes open letter to Washington Post regarding City Paper lawsuit

Bad organizational leaders create a culture in which the organization suffers greatly. What he does as boss directly affects the Redskins. He's a bitch and does all the shit that researchers would strongly advise a boss to NOT do if he cares about his organization.

Fair points. I just don't get the hard on people get on criticizing the guy for something not related directly with the Redskins. Like I said, I don't agree with what the guy is doing, but I'm not ranting here like this is going to cause the team to go 0-16.

Absolutely true, and I will complain about Snyder then next time he makes a bad decision that directly affects the Redskins as a football team.

I understand your point about Allen and Shanahan. But if I were highly sought after UFA NFL player I would care who signs my checks. It might not matter to you, but to me it is a big deal. I do not want to work for an ass hole owner.

Good points. However, I would say that issues like the McNabb and Haynesworth situations would play a bigger role in what you are saying. Still, I'll be curious to see how free agency works out for the Redskins after this situation with Snyder.

Re: Snyder writes open letter to Washington Post regarding City Paper lawsuit

I think most players realize some bogus/exaggerated stories shouldn't and don't have an effect on them signing with the Redskins. I mean guys like Mike Sellers, Fred Smoot and Derrick Dockery even came back to the team after being allowed to walk

Ruhskins, I'm still waiting on a answer to this question. Can you name one thing that he's been successful with since buying the Redskins?

You keep saying that his actions are not Redskins related it doesn't affect them. So you think Snyder can make all these horrible decisions outside of Redskins Park, and yet he'll somehow manage to only do good decisions within the Park? For how long though? That's the beef most of us have. We know sooner or later Mr. Hyde is going to show up.

I think his decisions outside of football show you exactly his thought process is in making decisions with the football organization as well. Sure Mike and Bruce run things now, but who's to say that Danny boy and his insecure, impatient self doesn't change that? Judging by his actions in other businesses and the public relations, do you trust this guy?...lol

Most NFL players get suspended, and fined for actions that are committed off the field that are irrelevant for their on the field productivity. According to you, those actions shouldn't matter so why do they? It's because of what it reflects.


I think you see where I'm going with this. Your actions show you the type of person you are, and the type of decisions you'll most likely be making in the future. Snyder continues to show us he makes horrible decision after horrible decision. How long do you thing he's going to give Shanny before he cuts in?

Also, it's funny how he went from claiming the whole suit was brought because it was an attack on his wife, with cancer, and his jewish heritage. It seems now with his new letter, that those reasons have changed. No, the real reason hasn't changed, and that reason is because Dan Snyder is a self absorbed asshole that doesn't get it, and probably never will regardless of how many people he pays to tell him.

It's only a matter of time before Dumbass Dan (outside of Redskins business) starts reverting back to his old ways. You know and I know it. Why do we know it? Because of how he's acting now regardless if it's Redskins related or not.

Like I said many times over. I'd rather be talking about the draft and football related stuff then have to converse over our dumbass owner. I think we can all agree on this.


edit: Agree with Smoot. I don't think it really matters to players. My guess is most care about the money to begin with.

Feinstein On The Brink


A great read here.


My favorite part.


Quote:
A pause here for a quick word on Cerrato, who crawled out from under his rock a few weeks ago to appear on Mike Wise’s radio show. I like Wise, I really do, but why ANYONE would give Cerrato five minutes of airtime (or any space in the newspaper) is seriously beyond me. At one point when Wise, his co-host Holden Kushner and their producer Chris Johnson (a SERIOUSLY aggrieved Redskins fan) were trying to pin Cerrato down on something—anything—one of them asked Cerrato whose decision it was to sign Jeff George.

“I can’t recall,” Cerrato answered.

Jeez, all he had to do was add, “Senator,” to that line.

For a guy that doesn't like to talk about Snyder you sure say a lot.

As I said, in the end this has nothing to do with the team and I hope the team doesn't revert back to the days when Snyder made bad decisions and/or hired bad decision makers.
