Snyder to Stay on a Owner

The Billionaire BOYS Club - the other NFL team owners decided to keep Dan Snyder on as owner and to allow him to buy out the 3 minority owners for the WFT.

This is certainly GREAT news for the other three teams in the NFC East, who have benefited from Snyder’s horrific winning record as owner. Who wouldn’t want to oppose a team in this division with such a Buffon and the NFL’s worst owner at the helm.? As soon as Rivera is gone, Dan will be back to his old tricks again.

What this means in the short run:

1. We won’t have a team name. We will still remain as the laughing stock of the NFL fans who consider our inability to get a real name as another sign of dysfunction and poor management. I believe Snyder won’t pick a new name because he’d have to pay someone to get it.

2. We’ll have male and female cheerleading squad. Snyder will do anything and everything to move away from all the sexist allegations of the last year. We’ll be the only team with a mixed cheerleading squad. Again to the amusement and laughter of the rest of the NFL.

3. As long as RIVERA is winning and stays on, he will have full power to make team, management and personnel decisions. But don’t believe for a second that anything has changed with Snyder. Dan micromanaged the team to the very bottom of the NFL over 20 years and is certainly just ITCHING to put his fingers back in the pie!! He’s played nice for a year but he can’t wait to wade into the personnel decision-making again. We’re ok as long as Rivera is around. As soon as he leaves, the team will spiral downward under Dan’s piss poor decision-making. The old employee rule will be back: “Don’t look into my eyes - for I am from Mt Olympus and you are a lowly mortal!”

Long-term: Snyder will be our owner for another couple decades. Nothing has changed. He wants to get back into making all the team decisions, regardless of whether the team wins or not.

New Stadium? Possible but not soon. All the local politicians hate Snyder because the fans hate Snyder. That won’t change. If any other owner offered to build a new stadium WITH HIS OWN MONEY the local pols would jump at it. But Snyder is reviled in the Washington DC area and I’m not sure any politician wants to be associated with him right now. If the team wins and the fans come back, then the politicians will make a stadium deal with Snyder. But NOT right away.

The owners may forgive Snyder or may like to having him around because (in comparison) Snyder makes them look like geniuses and compassionate human beings. But I think it will take years for the fans to come back.

Maybe if the team wins consistently in the next seasons, the fan base will return quickly. But I wonder. The team is in decrepit FedEx field until 2027. It’s a lousy stadium and Snyder’s prices are high and the service is awful. Fans may come to see Chase Young and a winning team, but It took 2 decades of gross owner mismanagement and misconduct to destroy this team’s fan base. I just don’t think the fans will forgive SNYDER so quickly just because his fellow owners did so.

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

It seems like you put a lot of effort into this post so I ain't gonna ignore it.

But for me, until we see evidence that Snyder is back to his old ways, I trust Ron's process. If Ron can't fix it though, yeah we're probably fucked for life.

Maybe my overly long rant didn’t come out the way I wanted but I think we’re saying the same thing:

Rivera has total control until he either:

1. quits

2. hits the end of his contract and isn’t renewed

3. Snyder fires him


I’m completely psyched about the Rivera era. Look what he’s done in just one year. I’m especially excited about how he has been judicious in spending money on FA, by either forcing players to prove themselves in one year deals or hiring reasonably priced players to fill the weakest areas in the team. This is the exact opposite of Snyder/Cerrato/Allen decision-making which was to “win the Spring” by hiring one or two Uber-expensive “superstar FAs” every year to keep the fan base excited in the off season. However, these players were just cashing in and often played soft, or arrived in camp soft or got hurt easily. Most never came close to fulfilling their cost or potential or hype.

Rivera has also preserved his draft picks and did VERY WELL in his first draft!

I’m very happy as long as Rivera is around because he built his autonomy and independence into his contract. Especially if he keeps winning.

There is also a chance that (hopefully many, many years) in the future that Dan Snyder will learn from the Rivera experiment. That is to bring in NFL-experienced leadership to run an NFL franchise. We’ll see.

Still, I wonder what took Snyder so long to give someone like Rivera the keys to the kingdom. It was only after 20 years of losing, destroying the WFT fan base, being brought under investigation by the NFL, being sued by multiple employees and enduring a civil war within the organization led by the minority owners that Snyder decided to change. This is NOT a man who seems to learn from his mistakes.

For the years to come, Rivera is the man and Snyder just signs the checks!! Maybe Rivera will even influence Snyder to choose a real team name or let the fans pick it via a vote!

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

Not gonna argue that history tells us this is NOT a good long term news.

But the one thing I disagree with it I think this should accelerate this whole rebrand process. The possibility he might be forced to sell, combined with the knowledge a no-name team would be worth significantly more than a recently renamed team, was delaying the choice IMO.

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

Are we having a cheerleading team or dance team? Seems lame...Dan should just do the right thing and hire a vendor such as Camelot from the city to provide that fan entertainment to the fans.

Open a dispensary to in the stadium...”The Peacepipe” as well. Link to the past and future.

I saw an announcement about DANCE TEAM tryouts.

Shame, our cheerleaders were always the best in the NFL and I'm saying that putting my bias aside. Dallas' girls are overrated just because the media is always licking the Cowboys' chaps.

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

Its not a given that he wont sell, or be forced to sell, it has always been a long shot but now the ownership situation is a lot simpler and if anything makes selling easier. All the Billionaire Boys club wanted was to stop the minority owners from dragging the shield through the dirt. Now they are rid of them and the controversy fueled in most part by the minority owners wanting to force Dan to allow them to sell their stakes is fading away. Having 32 successful franchises (including Washington) is more important to them than keeping Snyder around to make them look good. I think it is in all their interests to have a strong and successful Washington franchise. I also think that they will not approve anymore sales of minority shares in the team if DS cannot play nice with minority owners.

Don't you think it would be an awful look for the NFL to appear as backing Snyder up and reenforcing his position... to then say a couple of months later "oh by the way he's a horrible person and needs to be punished with the most harsh thing ever enforced on an owner" ?

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

I really dont give a shit about who is dancing or cheering. If we are winning they are awesome if we are losing they suck.

I care more about the football too, but this is embarrassing, I really hope we don't go there. But, the NFL and owners are really into virtue-signaling, so expect it across the league.

Re: Snyder to Stay on a Owner

Keeping my fingers cross that Snyder's investigation and revamping of the front office would give him pause and a clue to stay in the background and let the "football minds" and RR run the show..... It's the only way we the team will enjoy success....HOPING FOR THE BEST!


Id rather have NO Cheerleaders than a "dance team"....let the fans in the stands make the noise and fire up the team! And if RR keeps them on the winning track the FANS will return to the stands!
