Media Hypocricy

Anyone else find it funny that the national media, who have taken pleasure every year in taking potshots at Snyder for free spending, is now turning on the Redskins for being frugal? The same comments always showed up, cap jail, can't keep spending like that, team without a salary cap until this year. Fact is the Redskins are well ($5+ Million I beleive) below the cap and could have matched Pierce's contract, can pay Smoot what he's asking for and can still absorb the hit for dealing Coles but they are making the choice not to throw max dollars around.. It's like damned if you do damned if you don't.. It will just make it sweeter when the Skins are playing in late January one of these years!

Re: Media Hypocricy

Yea I agree with, The hypocrisy of the press is laughable. Even the local radio shows (sportstalk 980) take there shots at the Skins. Smoking AL Cocan is famous for this. he wines that they spend to much on players every year. Now that they are trying to not spend a lot of money on players he is wining about that. Like you said damned if you do damned if you don't..

You know Snyder may have brought this on himself, But you would think Joe Gibbs would get the benefit of the doubt by these press fools. The guy is a hall of fame coach, has 4 super bowl appearances, 3 super bowl victories, 2 successful NASCAR teams. The guy has been successful in everything he as done. The good thing is I know he hears these things and it has got to be motivating him.

Re: Media Hypocricy

I've been thinking the same thing these last few days, but some fans are just as guilty as the media is of this. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Re: Media Hypocricy

Until this franchise wins and wins consistently it'll be a soft target.

When it turns around (And it will, soon) we'll then be subjected to a grovel-fest the likes of which has never been seen before.

I agree with you, Snyder is the new George Steinbrenner/ Jerry Jones of the recent NFL, they love to hate him.
However, correct me if I am wrong Crazycanuck, but the Redskins do not have enough cap room to have signed both Pierce and Smoot and traded Coles. I thought Coles will be an immeadiate $5M (or something crazy like that) if we trade him or cut him.

Re: Media Hypocricy

Coles is more than that if he was cut, he'd hit the cap for over $9M

big cap hit, but that room was cleared by Samuels' restructuring his deal.

We'll absorb his signing bonus -- ouch. Unless part of the deal was him giving it back.

Re: Media Hypocricy

Too late for him to give anything back, the deadline for the $5M bonus already passed

Re: Media Hypocricy

if we paid him 5 mil already, then how much remained on his signing bonus and how much money will be on the cap hit.
