Pals reunite on-air with Frank Herzog, 'the voice' of the Redskins

Herzog explained later that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder wasn't behind his firing; he was dumped by radio station WJFK-FM, which then held the rights to broadcast Redskins games.

"It was a money thing," Herzog said. "They wanted to use one of their employees, who had other responsibilities, so they could save one salary." As for Snyder: "He did all he could. I saw him later, and he looked me in the eye and shook my hand and said: 'I don't interfere with the decisions of other companies. It's their call to make.' "

I think I once mentioned that I came close (about two years ago) to working the Redskins radio and online team. And honestly, the problems go beyond who's in the booth. It was a bit of a management mess. But Snyder was not even remotely involved in any of it
Really seems like Snyder isn't the monster he is made out to be. Is that the sense you had while working for him?

Um. I never worked for him. But from my limited direct contact with him along with second-hand contact, no he's not a monster. He's not dark hearted like Riggins would say. He's not, wasn't at least, a super gregarious guy either. He's not like Cuban or Jerry Jones. He's a bit impetuous (I think that's the word I'm looking for) and when he first started as owner he was very heavily influenced by his dad and Fred Drasner (who was a total buffoon). And he spent too much time acting like the dumb fans we all are and he can no longer afford to be.

Maybe in addition to "impetuous" you might want to add "'imperious"?

Re: Redskins broadcast team

I have to say that I grew up listening to Frank, Sam and Sonny. We'd turn down the sound on the TV and listen to the games on WMAL. I thought it was a tragedy when WJFK fired Frank and went with Larry Michaels; it was never the same and the broadcast seemed to lose a lot of the on-air chemistry that it had with Herzog. After being overseas and coming back home several years later, it's been a real disappointment to hear that there's still no real chemistry between Michaels and Sam and Sonny and it's been almost heartbreaking to hear the state that Sam is in. Clearly, Sam needs to retire. If they could get Frank back, a team of Frank and Sonny would be great.
