If only all teams could have been so lucky to have that devil as an owner

If only there was the 24/7 news coverage and social media back then that there is today. We might think a little differently of JKC.

Re: Dancing With The Devil: The True Story of Working for Jack Kent Cooke

Haven't read the link yet, but from previous reports of Cooke & even from what Joe Gibbs has jokingly said about him, he sounded tough & prone to knee-jerk reactions & small tantrums.

Everybody knows owners of a billion dollar biz are gonna have big egos & be demanding, all things equal, their image & their personality is the difference in public opinion. Snyder does not seem very likable, whereas Cooke had charisma & was pretty savy about using the media.

So some skirt worked with him for a whopping two years and now she's going to throw him under the bus so she can cash in on a book.
Wonderful.....

Name me one Billionaire that is not high maintenance and difficult to work for or deal with. Billionaires do not get to where they are by being a nice push over type. Of course JKC was sometimes difficult. So what.?.?

If this was about Snyder, this thread would already be 15 pages long
