Personally I say if Danny boy doesn't like the negative stuff being said, put up more wins than loses and stop making stupid FO mistakes.

i gotta take the redskins side. the post has the right to print and say what they want but they must remember that it is a privilage to be the so-called "main source" for redskins news. they should be as nice to the skins as possible in order to get more interviews with players, coaches etc.... but instead they wrote some negative articles concerning the skins and gibbs and even dan snyder. you don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Re: Skins vs. The Post

It's about time that skins.com got better anyway. Given the cash that snyder has, he should invest in making the website first-class.

As for the post, I don't like reading their speculative negative stuff, but you can't expect them to do the skins bidding. And the skins haven't won in a long time, so they can't really talk. Once they start winning, the coverage will improve--eveyone know this.

Re: Skins vs. The Post

I agree...I'm all for reporting unbiased news, but untrue news crosses the line!

You almost feel like you right there training with the team watching some of those players work out!

Re: Skins vs. The Post

i personaly don't have a problem with them posting negative news but it's obviouse that snyder and gibbs do. the wash. post is shooting itself in the foot, they should have had the "i'll scratch your back if you scratch mine" mentality with snyder.

Plus, the Post is always a step late on breaking news. Where were they when Gibbs was coming back as coach? I read that on CBS Sportsline and the post was so out of touch they even refuted that it was true. With the exception of the occasional Wilbon, Kornheiser columns, the rest of it is crotch rot.

Re: Skins vs. The Post

The problem with the Post's coverage is the same problem with most journalism - it's gotten sloppy. News stories are far too speculative. I love the columns, for the most part though.

Re: Skins vs. The Post

redskins.com has been a worthless site for a long long time, its good that its finally going to be a useful place to learn about what's happening with the team. Just remember that the team owns the site, sso its not news, its propaganda... I doubt it'll ever post dissenting views, but thats what this place is for... right?

...and ade jimoh is a gauranteed hall of famer. I bet he only gives up 3 total passes this year... that's tough to beat.

Re: Skins vs. The Post

There is balance that's needed in everything.......I don't want to read sickening sweet "everything is wonderful" homer type reporting where you need an insulin shot to read the stuff. I do want an HONEST assessment and reporting, but no exaggerating, or negative reports just because you hate Snyder.....that's not journalism..........

Re: Skins vs. The Post

So the Skins are pissed because the Post reports the news. They Snyder got pissed when the Post ran the story that Coles was unhappy. Was it not true? It was the news, was it not? Isn't the newspaper's job? And they got pissed when they ran the LaVar story. OMG. The news. Okay, they were wrong to run with the Gibbs thing, however, I don't think he'll coach 5 years, so...whatever.

Anyway...how can you side with the Redskins? They're going to bring us the "unfiltered" news. So, obviously, if they were mad about the LaVar and Coles news being run, they wouldn't have run it. That doesn't seem filtered at all. This is all just a ploy to distract us from the fact that they are looking to work out Freddie Mitchell.
