I call it the Ovechkin rule as it's basically the policy followed by Leonis. The coach and GM take care of 99% of all transactions on their own with virtually no oversight from the owner, however at the same time they get the owner to oversee and sign off on the really big acquisitions or decisions. So Snyder would be more involved in say releasing Haynesworth and McNabb rather then something big but smaller like drafting Kerrigan. Best you can hope for is not having Snyder go all Bud Adams on you and forcing you to not only draft a QB you don't want but playing him.

Different then what you're saying of course but this is how I want Snyder involved

You mean since 2010 or 2000? And how does it compare to owner Jerry Jones role in the war room. Please respond with a 5,000 word essay that doesn't employ fluff and cites sources in APA format.

He's had enough fun at the expense of our franchise. That idiot can watch the NFL draft just like everybody else. He's proven that his football decisions are absolutely horrible and needs to stay the **** away from making any. Stick to suing and bullying local reporters.

How about 140 characters

Been that way for as long as I can recall. Jones is the GM so he's more involved. Snyder is more like Kraft in the war room. Sit and listen


But anyway, this isn't/shouldn't be about Snyder. It's about someone making a false statement and too many other people running with it

When you own the team, you can make the call. Until that time, guess what...........

Not me either. He should have a relationship with the football ops guys like a CEO has with the President of the Board of Directors. Let the CEO manage, but do enought to keep that CEO in line.

Lenosis' approach is borderline crazy if he didn't have Ovechkin.

Re: busted trade

Just curious, was Jack Kent Cooke ever in the War Room on draft day? Seems like to me he wouldn't be the type that would be interested -- probably just told Beathard, Casserly and Gibbs to go have their fun while he went off to earn another billion or two.

It's not like he wasn't involved, even if he wasn't physically in the room (which I don't believe he was, though I've heard he wasn't)

A look inside draft war rooms - NYPOST.com

Quote:
Draft Day, 1991: The Cowboys, picking 12th, were staring at wide receiver Alvin Harper.
"I never wanted to draft a receiver up high," former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson recalled.
So Johnson began working the phones, and became concerned when a deal to swap picks with Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, at 17, appeared in jeopardy.
"Joe," Johnson said, "you agreed to it, our guys are ready to make the trade." Johnson remembers Gibbs, in a low voice, telling him, "Jimmy, I'm sorry, but the old man [owner Jack Kent Cooke] turned me down."
Johnson had one minute left to find a trade partner. He wound up drafting Harper

Nah, he'd rather go on his honeymoon then sit in a "War" room.

ah, hello, the story is not true, more BS from idiots who like to dump on the Redskins and come out looking like Morons and point the finger at others when its not true.
