No but I think he's just trying to voice his frustration out and we all are frustrated, as is Dan and everyone in the organization I'm sure.

i thought we all came to a spontaneous and unspoken agreement not to comment on this article/thread bc we all know and are over talking about how DS sucks and loves this team like Lennie loved soft furry things ..... it almost happened.

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

For as bad as the Snyder era has been, there are worse owners out there.. Remember Mike Brown was far worse than Snyder has ever been just a short time ago but Marvin Lewis came in and fixed the on field product and you don't hear about Brown anymore.

Winning cures all woes. Let us make the playoffs 3 out of 5 years, advance to a conference championship game or God forbid win a SB, he will all of the sudden be considered one of the better owners in the league.

Of course not. My point was there is a track record of over saturated marketing and making headlines. That's his right as a business man and owner of the team. I just wish it translated into more wins.

I do to. I think too many people correlate it with loses in a causal way though and I fail to see how any perceived over-marketing (or whatever) has anything to do with the on-field product.

Asking for clarification: I guess you mean individual teams don't make much that way on their own? According to this, merch is a big part of what I assume is shared revenue.

That link only mentions gross sales, not profit from merch.

Do you really think it's him or the market he's in? Around 2000, you could say that, but here we are again, rehashing past sins that are more than a decade old. Even the MEDIA that vilified him during those same years has said he truly has taken a back seat approach. I can see him saying, "Wow, I'd like player x, but hey, your decision." at the VERY worst.

Sure it's a significant revenue stream, but big picture teams make much more profit by consistently putting winning teams on the field.

i think being the champs of the offseason = refreshed hope = increased season ticket sales = one of the most profitable NFL franchises

i do think DS was smart in constantly rebranding the redskins which i do believe was an intentional strategy and approach. whether it be signing a big FA or new coach.

but it really is water under the bridge for me. i think ive finally let go of the past 15 years of disfunction and pointing blame.

That's the perfect metaphor.
As to your point, it was surprising to see this thread pop up so long after the article was published. Oh well.

One can't deny Snyder's incredible success in business, before and with the Skins. But as far as the team goes, a title: "Dan Snyder: Formula for Success" reminds me of the jokes about books like these:

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

So if teams don't get rich from jerseys or merchandise, then how do our redskins stay so profitable? I understand winning puts asses in the seats, which lead to the real money. But the redskins aren't consistent winners, have never been remotely close to a superbowl under Snyder, but we are still one of the top "selling" teams in the NFL.

Honest question here - not trying to be a wise ass. I assumed always that part of what made the Redskins such a "rich" team was that they had all of their seats sold out year after year, was top selling in merchandise, jerseys, etc...

If winning is the major revenue stream, then how are the skins not in trouble financially unless they make just enough from merchandise to keep afloat....
