  1. Daniel Snyder ...Dare We Say a competent owner

    I wonder if fans of other teams ever argue about whether or not their FO has finally ascended into mediocrity.
  2. Daniel Snyder ...Dare We Say a competent owner

    Last 10 games against: Dallas 2-8 NYG 3-7 Philadelphia 5-5 NFCE 10-20 Acting like we're in the early stages of the Renaissance instead of fully entrenched in the Dark Ages seems premature.
  3. You can see the entire interview with Rachel and Charo here. They do a nice job. They dispute whether anyone was forced to do a topless shoot. The article does say that. On the other hand, they claim that they didn't feel like "escorts". I never felt the article was suggesting that they were hookers. Perhaps the article should have said that they were coerced into "accompanying" the sponsors to the night club. The creepy part, to me, is that they were (allegedly) hand-picked. While the interview smoothed out some of the roughest edges of the article, I'm afraid this will only serve to drag out the story.
  4. Which means the heat is on them to find out the next story. Assuming the NYT story in generally true, I can't believe it would be the only indiscretion. Plus, no one has named the sponsors yet. My guess is that half the WP staff is working on that right now.
  5. Well, they took down the "Who's Hotter" feature from the cheerleaders section. Problem solved!
  6. Someday I'll learn how to copy a tweet, but Craig Hoffman also tweeted the NBC News has talked to two additional cheerleaders (not in the group of 5 that talked to the NYT) that confirmed the details in the article.
  7. Is there a reason to argue whether or not the team could hold the passports of the cheerleader if the cheerleaders contractually agreed to it? There is no reason to believe that the cheerleader agreement has this stipulation. And if the cheerleaders did agree to surrender their passports when representing the Skins in a foreign country, it wouldn't mean that it would be allowable to use the team's possession of the passport to coerce a cheerleader into immoral behavior. In fact, it makes it worse, because it looks like the pimping was planned well in advance.
  8. I'm pretty sure that they do add value, that's why we have cheerleaders. In fact, I can remember that a few years ago, cheerleader comparisons were a weekly event on ES. Too late, the damage has already been done. And getting rid of the cheerleaders now won't change anything other than reinforce the notion that the leadership is so lame that they can't even manage cheerleaders without someone pimping them out.
  9. Not just Snyder. I imagine that most or all of the 9 men were married, as well as some of the coerced cheerleaders. It's just a matter of time before names, and company names, come out. I'm more amazed at the lack of foresight than the lack of morals. Stories like this go away when reporters deem that digging deeper won't yield headlines. I don't think we're anywhere close to reaching that point.
  10. I'm not having any trouble drawing a line here. All of the cheerleaders knew that they'd be wearing skimpy uniforms in front of 60K fans for $100 a week. They knew that they'd be expected to be abnormally fit. I'm fairly sure that most of the cheerleaders thought that being in the calendar was an honor. So I have no problem with that objectification. Being told that you'll be someone's date for the night is something entirely different. Not asked, told. It's disgusting and it degrades the entire organization.
  11. ****ing Bruce "we're sinning off the field" Allen has even managed to **** up a cheerleader photoshoot. I highly doubt he had anything to do with the planning, but he sure as **** knew that there would be unaffiliated men on the trip. And that could only lead to one thing.
  12. I don't know how much Allen makes - top GMs make $3M and up - but even if he makes a measley $1M per year, couldn't he at least read the CBA? How embarrassing is it to be schooled by Mike Florio?
  13. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    If your going to count Trent Green as winning a Super Bowl, shouldn't you add Sudsy?
  14. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Here are the Skin's leading passers for the 20 seasons between Rypien and Cousins: Shuler, Frerotte, Frerotte, Frerotte, Green, Johnson, Johnson, Banks, Ramsey, Ramsey, Ramsey, Brunell, Brunell, Campbell, Campbell, Campbell, McNabb, Grossman, Griffin, Griffin. But, no problem, we'll pick up someone better than Cousins in the next 22 months. Because we have geniuses who can do that sort of thing.
  15. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    They spent over 22 years looking for Kirk, and by the time they realized he was good, it was too late. If they couldn't identify Kirk as a franchise quarterback after having him for four years and 25 starts, I have no faith in them grooming a developmental project over the next 22 months while Smith keeps us around 8-8. I really don't see this as a favorable position at all.
