Bobby Mitchell died years ago and retired 5 million years ago but they want to mention him now?

ST has been gone 14 years. Why not do this at year 10 or 20 of his passing?
Or maybe his 40th birthday?

Darrell Green and Art Monk will be trotted out like show ponies the next time Snyder fucks up.

I hate this fucking team so god damn much.
The main reason Julie D got the job is because of the harassment scandal, u cant convince me otherwise.

Dan is so obvious in what he does, and now here is another FAKE ATTEMPT at showing us all that "Hey we are not like that"

He's the biggest bitch in sports BY FAR

Stupid decision to retire his number. No matter the circumstances of his death this is undeserved and there are plenty of other Redskins that deserve it more (and no I'm not advocating their numbers be retired).

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

hey Jam, hope all is well.

This is the first Im hearing about retiring ST and Bobby Mitchells number. My understanding is that this was planned/decided on months ago but the team just didnt announce things until now.



edit - dang, i didnt know we were talking about this in the KFC thread .. apologies yall

I guess you can contrast the decision for each. One retirement was deserved, and planned out ahead of time, the other is undeserved, not planned out (likely) and comes in the middle of a scandal giving the appearance it is actually an attempt to distract.

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

Shitty timing on the announcement, really can't figure out the logic there, but I have zero issue with Taylor's # being retired. And a few players have said they were contacted weeks ago about it. So it wasn't just cooked up this week. Again, no idea why they waited this long to announce it.

Would have helped more if they announced it weeks ago. People definitely would have traveled for it.

I was thinking the same thing. Sean Tyler. Regardless the ineptitude to not get this broadcast sooner for fans sake shows where we stand in importance

There are a lot of things that happened to Mitchell long before Snyder took over that would be frowned upon today. I wouldn't call Jack Kent Cooke a racist at all, but I would say he like a lot of owners were more comfortable with a white person in charge of his football team. Mitchell was passed over twice by Cooke for the GM job when he had been there for several years.

Then the shit w/ Snyder and passing out his number to a back up TE and then a few other things that went on, Bobby left the Redskins w/ a sour taste in his mouth. Very sad because if someone deserved to have his number retired many many years ago it was Bobby. To retire #49 after he died just disgusted me personally. I got to meet Mr Mtichell a few times. Such a classy guy.

This thing w/ Taylor is just another long list of screw ups. Kind of disrespectful to give a couple days notice to the fans..

If fucking everything up 100% of the time is the magic touch. Then Snyder is the greatest magician of my lifetime. Everything he does is shit.

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

Regardless of Douche Snyder and the pr stunt timing I am happy for ST and his family. Still hard to believe how much of an impact he made in such a short time. Dude was on a collision course with opposing players and the HOF. My imagination probably doesn’t do justice to what would have been.
Played for my alma mater, and us. Probably my favorite player of all time. What an absolute physical specimen and assassin he was. So smart on the field. Good dude. It was a pleasure to watch that man play football.
