Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

An interesting article on Dan Snyder from The Washington Post.

Daniel Snyder, Washington Redskins owner, still struggles to find formula for success - The Washington Post

Re: Dan Snyder

Snyder made so many mistakes as an owner...firing Norv when the Redskins were still in playoff contention, firing Marty after the team won 8 of its last 11, hiring Spurrier when he wasn't qualified....now that he has a real football man Bruce Allen running his team all he has to do is watch and be patient for a SB to come.

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

is the story of Snyder being the reason we got McNabb instead of Bulger a lie or truth?

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

I can't wait for the day when those Washington Post columnists are all run out of D.C.! Of course, that will probably happen once the 'skins win a Super Bowl - but I just have this feeling things are coming together.

Love the article about Clinton Portis. Does make you wonder - everybody else paints Snyder as a villain, but how many of the Redskins players who meant anything to this team has ever said anything bad about the guy? I'm sure he's no saint, but still, I'd love to be a fly on the wall during some of those conversations.

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

Charlie Casserly says it exactly right in my opinion:
(from the article)
“What’s happened is this guy gets beaten up because people want to beat him up,” said Casserly, who was fired by Snyder in 1999. “He’s done what people have told him to do, and people are still taking shots at him and not looking at the thing objectively.”

And this is coming from a GM who got fired by Snyder - taking up for Dan.

Also, looking at the tagline, it should be called the Anti Snyder Squad (or A.S.S. for short):

Jason Reid, Mike Jones, Mike Wise, Sally Jenkins and Kent Babb contributed to this report.

Re: Dan Snyder: WP: Formula for Success Article

One thing I've learned about having my own business is business owners, no matter how big or small, want to be involved in what's going on. I haven't met one that's truly hands off. Snyder is no different. He's a very successful business man who made his money on his own. I think his commercialization of the Redskins does get in the way of him building a winner. He always wants the quick fix that's going to make the headlines. There's a certain pattern under his ownership....trade draft picks, sign free agents, stay in the news, sell jerseys, win the off season. What has it gotten him? A lot of losing. At best a 10 win season ... and one of those was really a team Casserly put together.

Didn't we win 10 games in 2012?

Meaning the most he's had in one year is 10 wins.

Teams aren't getting rich from jerseys or merch. Gets really tiring to hear that.
