Sentiment in DC area for tax payer help to build a new stadium for Dan Snyder and Bruce Allenís Redskins will not go far at this time. Dan has to distance himself from BA.

Add the lease at the current Stadium is through 2027. He is going to be with the Redksins until then? I hope not.

Good grief. Stadiums donít get built very often. I donít think there are ANY NFL execs out there have negotiated new stadium deals who are not currently employed. So a person with the resume you cite does not exist.

Bruce knows all the parties involved and, supposedly, has a very good reputation with DC politicians. Heís someone they know and have worked with for years. Unless itís determined that BRUCE is the reason a stadium deal hasnít gotten done yet, then it doesnít make sense to remove him and bring in someone new when heís neck deep in things, especially if all the parties involved have good relationships. To do so would be like drafting a rookie QB and forcing him on a head coach in a year he must win or be fired. Itís doomed for failure.

As far as how long Bruce would stay on working on the stadium deal - as long as necessary until the deal is done. If heís not involved in football operations, then it doesnít matter at all. Heíll have the same impact on the football side of things if the stadium deal takes 1 year or 10 - ZERO.

Sadly, it seems that many here are allowing their emotions and desire to see allens head on a stick to could rational thought.

I will only be alarmed if, after the new organization structure is announced, Bruce has people in Football Ops (executive Team president, GM, or HC) reporting to him.

My guess based on reports out there is that weíll have someone from the outside (not beholden to bruce) coming in to be the the top executive. Bruce may report to him directly and be focused only on the stadium deal. Then maybe Schaffer or Smith is promoted to GM. Itís a good separation of future with Bruce having no influence in football stuff.

Agreed. Riddick has no experience and seems like someone who would just be a ďyes manĒ to Snyder. No thanks. We need a strong executive with enough credibility to keep Snyder at bay.

This

The fact Bruce has engaged in multiple power struggles as well as character smear folks on the way out shows he isnít a good person and lacks discipline needed to guide an org. This goes beyond his basic failures at his job.

The only way is if Bruce is gone period. Reassignment would be the Redskins still doing Redskins things.

Yeah i donít believe that story. I would guess the skins (or Allen himself) put that out there in advance of his ďresignationĒ or role change to drum up some interest in some kind or role elsewhere in the league.

Re: Bruce Out??

Allen just needs to go away. Why would you want him doing business affairs when all the agents dislike him? Just fire him like you did Gruden.

Snyder wants the stadium in DC I believe. What ties does Allen have w/ the liberal DC govt? None as far as I know. His brother is a known racist and is out of politics so I'm not sure why Dan needs him, except to be drinking buds. I don't see any connections for DC or MD. Maybe VA...

Re: Bruce Out??

Bruce would be useful as a tackling dummy, just think of the boost to off season workout attendance, TW would be at the front of the line on day 1.

Re: Bruce Out??

Jay Glazer seems to speculate BA could move to the business side of things. I hope not!!

I would have no issues with Riddick. He is well respected and can rebuild burned bridges.

Exactly right. Knowing Dan, a childhood Redskins fan during RFK glory days, he wants his new stadium on the old RFK grounds. The classic TV shot of RFK near the national monuments is priceless.
MD and VA is strip malls and traffic. How did Landover work out?
With the political turnover Allen is not plugged in politically anymore, in fact his unpopularity in DC area make him a political liability for any politician.
Dan needs to fire BA and hire a legitimate Media relation and Political relations firm that specializes in these type projects. Not Bruce Allen. Would you put BA in charge anything after what he did to the Redskins? Not a logical choice.
Who in their right mind would think Bruce is top choice? Even Dan can see that from his yacht.

I'm not sure I buy the Twitter talk but who knows. With the Giants looking like they're going to move on from their coach, why wouldn't he go there where he has a relationship with the GM? He has no ties here at all.
