For the most part I agree with these comments. But, I think the Times asked some "uncomfortable" questions and didn't throw slow balls for Danny to knock out of the park. Certainly it gave Danny a medium to address his critics, but it pointed out a lot of "bad things" about Danny's rule. Danny even admitted in the story that he did a lot of bad things early on in his ownership. I'm not sure how an interviewer could've been much more aggressive or "truth-seeking."

So, some of the stuff in there is no more "objective" and "reality-based" than the stuff on redskins.com. In fact, a part of the interview is stuff that might have appeared on redskins.com had there not been this Times interview.
Again, I don't think anyone takes the Times as the gospel of truth. We've made a few jokes about the Times (albeit not in this thread) is the past about its inaccurate reporting. Nor do I think that people reading the article took Danny's word at face value - as you yourself noted. But, the article was interesting nonetheless.

I'm not so sure Sy Hersh or the New Yorker ranks up there with Woodward and Bernstein. This is the guy who said we will invade Iran within a few months. But that's neither here nor there.

You're right. But, I was talking in general terms about journalism and the growing distaste for pure pessimism.

One of the few things I agree with you Daseal is the fact of needing a good GM.

Re: Snyder Interview

I say keep the current front office arrangement for a more few years.

We all seem to agree the importance of having some continuity. Gibbs likes the current setup, the personnel moves of last year panned out pretty well both in free agency and the draft, so let's give it a couple more seasons to fairly judge the job they've done.
