Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

Washington Redskins are an obsession for owner Dan Snyder and writer Dave McKenna - ESPN The Magazine - ESPN

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

Danny boy has done a lot of screwed up things since he's been owner. There has been much on the job training in his case but it does appear he's learned a few things along the way. Turning control of the team over to a GM like Allen and to the coach is the most valuable of these lessons and one I hope Jerruh never learns. Glad he's staying in the background where he belongs.

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

Really enjoyed this article. I think it highlighted both Snyder's flaws and his humanity in a really balanced way. I can certainly sympathize with how hard he apparently takes Redskins losses. For some reason, hearing that he boozes until 1am/4am makes me feel a little bit more of a kinship with him (even though I have had absolutely no role in the team's player personnel gaffes of the last 13 years).

This may be a bridge to far, but I've always wondered if Snyder suffers from some form of bipolar disorder or, maybe more likely, Asberger's/autism. He's a guy who just really wants people to like him and to have friends, but because he has social difficulties, he sees money/power/celebrity as the only reliable way to achieve that goal.

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

I'm about anti-Snyder as they come, but is this even remotely relevant at this current point?





Answer: No




Seth is about 3-4 years late on the Snyder hate.

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

I don't think it was a Snyder hate piece. It's part of ESPN the Mag's DC feature in its latest issue

One thing I never understood is McKenna's frustration with the non-partner being relegated to the parking lot. He must not know how media works

I thought it was fair in the end, he definately has taken a step back the last couple years. We all knew that about the players before also.

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

Snyder has screwed up a lot in the past, I mean a lot. But he is staying out of the way now and is no longer messing the Skins up. Bottom line, that's all any fan can ask him to do.

Let's just be happy he finally got it and it letting the team be ran the way it should be. At least for the most part.

I think Crusie was on E when he did this Oprah interview. No way a normal human being goes on TV and acts like this. It was E or a lot of coke.

He might social anxiety disorder or something. I've never seen an owner be so afraid to reach out and try and connect with his customers. And pounding beesr til the wee hours of the morning after a loss? Dude has serious issues.

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

I am not a Dan Snyder fan. I don't think he's a good owner, and I do believe deep down that he cares more about making a profit than putting a winning product on the field.

HOWEVER:

It appears that he truly has learned his lessons and has majorly done the right thing by finally letting the team have a GM that makes the decisions, etc. You look at the successful teams in the league and that's what you see.

I won't attempt to make a judgement on the human/personal side of Dan Snyder, because I don't know the man. Everything that I have heard from people close to the team / players, etc, all say that Dan really is a nice guy behind the scenes, a loving family man, etc...

I have heard it mentioned more than once that one thing Dan is obsessed with is having friends, being liked, etc.. and I also agree with the assesment that he may have some kind of personality disorder..

Re: Dan Snyders obsession ESPN story

I'm no Crane brother, but from my observation he doesn't have any sort of disorder. Not even sure how that conclusion was reached

This.
He's just a rich guy who want's the one thing he can't buy. He's kind of like Ebeneezer Scrooge, but backwards....he gives out too much money. (And I don't remember ever seeing him with a turkey).

Owners should always stay in the background where they belong. And let the coaches do their jobs and coach. Dan Synder at least got the team RG3!
