Re: New Team President

I know some may say the hired of Julie and Jason are PR moves and they may be but at least it's positive news

Re: New Team President

I don't care about skin color and "history" as long as he or she can do the job.

If a man earns a job on his own merits, THAT is why we should celebrate his accomplishments.

Good luck, Jason, glad to have you and not Bruce Allen aboard! Now get to work, cleanup in aisle...well, every aisle here at WFT headuarters!

Wow,we actually are getting positive news from the home team...are they actually trying to do it right this time? As Oliver Hardy would say...I most certainly hope so!

Re: New Team President

Impressive resume and he was brought in from outside the org. Two things to like right off the bat. Now let him do the job.

He certainly has the background with the education/NFL experience. He also got rave reviews. He sure has a job in front of him. Intriguing hire.

Re: New Team President

Snyder is doing this because I believe he was getting pressure from the other owners. If he didn't clean up the organization and also change the name he might have been gone. With the Donaldson hire and now bringing on a good clean cut brother this more than appeases the mob, DC Govt and so on.

That's an insult to Mr. Wright who appears to have an impressive resume and is qualified for the job no matter what he looks like.

He even has a football background as a player even though Coach Rivera is handling all football-related and personnel decisions, but that's an added bonus.

We saw what happens when non-football people like Vinny Cerrato touches things.
