Where's the flat out lying? The season tickets? Redskins haven't been forthright about that since the 70s?

I could really care less if someone hates the guy or not. I just think we've been there, done that a million times already.

I assume we were referring to Leary's resume (or I was) in reference to the lying. That bio isn't a "resume" to speak of.

And who doesn't have an embellished resume?
Especially the "Danny Boy" moniker.

I'd expect it from Dallas fans in the same way we call their owner "Jerrah", but from Skins fans? It just seems petty and immature.

How do we even know Dan Snyder wrote the bio himself? That seems like a job I'd appoint to someone under me if I were in his position.

Aren't you being a bit sensitive?


So having a nick-name for Snyder is now petty and immature. Truth be told, I call him Danny Boy as a homage to this guy. If you've seen the movie, you'll understand. Too bad Snyder isn't half as cool as that dude was...lol

(guy on far right)



Now, if people were making up a name like Haynesworthless type of variation of his name, you might have a point.

I seriously hope nobody thinks that Danny wrote that himself.

My mom heard me call Mr. Snyder, Danny Boy, once. It upset her because she didnt like him being associated with the song Danny Boy by The Irish Tenors, of which she is very fond of. I was shocked that my mom knew who Dan Synder was, let alone that he's disliked by many and some people use the Danny Boy moniker disparagingly towards him. My mom was shocked that people would use Danny Boy moniker disparagingly.

Re: Dan Snyder’s Official Team Bio Is A Tour De Force Of Bullshit

That he is paying someone to write such a long and insecure bio is the point. He is an extremely successful Billionaire businesses man that owns an NFL team, isn't that cool enough? Why sell him like he is Sandusky?
He would be better served presenting himself from a position of quiet strength. Not of loud insecure weakness.
Did he approve this Bio? That is the real question.
Bashing him further is not the point. So there shouldn't be be this rush to defend him on this.

Re: Dan Snyder’s Official Team Bio Is A Tour De Force Of Bullshit

Seems that people are missing what makes this article different than most every other anti-Snyder screed to come before it: this one is hilarious! It made me laugh out loud at several parts, so who cares if the point has already been made and made again. This isn't a proposal for a graduate thesis, it's a throwaway humerous article on a sportsblog with some great zingers. Although to go a step further and suggest that the bio's lack of objectivity actually reflects poorly on Snyder's character is pretty ridiculous in its own right. My official bio has some pretty critical ommissions as well (for instance no mention whatsoever of the year 2002), although I don't think that makes me a dishonest person. It's certainly not the same as claiming to hold a made-up degree from a made-up-school and putting that on my resume.

Re: Dan Snyder’s Official Team Bio Is A Tour De Force Of Bullshit

SS, I think he means people are rushing to say and judge that he is a complete and utter piece of brahman shit, without considering, that, um he IS a billionaire, and thats cool?

I guess?

Ummmm, no, sorry, ya, where the phuck DID the Sandusky allusion come from dude?

I guess I gave it the ol' college (not Penn State) try though.

Clinton Portis defends Dan Snyder 6/21/2012

Clinton Portis defends Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder

Decent article, I hate to say it but I agree on CP's belief that Snyder simply wants to win at all costs, as he should. He is also correct when he states that some owners don't want to put a dime in the team, don't want to pay players, etc. He is right on a few points in there.

He still mentions that he could make a comeback, but i believe he knew long ago that he was done. Maybe Dan feels sorry for poor old CP and brings him back to let him retire as a Redskin. I stopped liking CP long ago because of his work ethic and his attitude, but he does deserve to retire as a redskin...

CP played the game because God gave him a gift and he loved the huge paychecks and spotlight. He complained about practice and preseason and defended a dog killer. He is the perfect example of pulling for the name on the front of the jersey not the one on the back. Can't stand him.

The last team he played for was the Skins... so there's no need to re-sign him.
