  1. So now you equate Snyder with drug pushers? Lol. I don't think it's worth our time to discuss this further.
  2. It's clear you don't like him but that's really not the issue. There are toxic bosses in many workplaces - if you haven't experienced one yet count your blessings. Until I hear evidence to the contrary the buck stops with the chief executive in the building.
  3. Show me your evidence. Up to now it's only guilt by association. Why did the beat reporters never say anything? They knew all the characters involved. How could they not know if this stuff was happening for five years? You might as well throw them into the deep end while you are at it because it's hard to imagine that no one was aware. I'm surprised none of this surfaced during cheerleader-gate. Tolerating implies that you know it's going on. That's an entirely different story but no one has made that allegation. President Truman said "the buck stops here" because the one who makes the decisions has to accept responsibility for the results. The saying is usually applied to the chief executive rather than an owner because ownership delegates decision making power to the chief executive officer.
  4. For 20 years fans prayed for Snyder to be hands off and to let the football guys do their job. Now he is criticized for not monitoring the behavior of overgrown boys. I have a problem with the typical thought process in the media: "If he wasn’t aware of the behavior, he was negligent. If he was, he wilfully ignored it. He may not have participated in it, but given how long the culture was allegedly in place, he should have known about it and tried to put a stop to it. Simply put, it’s his responsibility as owner to do so." He is guilty your honor!!! We say so. Did anyone bring it to his attention? There are no allegations but he's still guilty. Tar and feather the guy because we hate what he did to the franchise.
  5. I don't like the owner and I haven't liked any of the team management for the 20 years Snyder has owned the team. But, I loath journalists who just spew their opinions on readership rather than letting the readers form their own opinions. It forces me to defend Snyder/et al when he's been terrible with the franchise. "he should stand at the podium and apologize", "he must have known", "he fostered the atmosphere", etc etc etc. If the media liked Snyder they wouldn't say anything like this. Instead it would be "he took decisive action in firing the culprits. He has hired the right people to fix this mess."
  6. I'd rather give more reps to the rookies. There's no need for any expensive prima donna veterans at this point. This year is just one long extended preseason - an opportunity for the coaches to see which players are a good fit.
  7. Jeez oh Peet. What a sad state of the franchise where the everyone's imagination runs to the worst possibilities
  8. Rookies need a preseason. Losing will help the draft position of the new team. That's the only plus to this season.
  9. We shall see in a few days. Fans will disappointed but if the NFL bans Redskins jerseys from games (as advocated on the sports radio station) I think people will be really mad. The NFL will need to step up and buy back gear.
  10. yeah, maybe dramatic. But on the radio today they were talking about the NFL prohibiting fans from wearing Redskin jerseys to any future NFL games. You wear the jersey and you will be denied admittance. No racist jerseys allowed in the stadium.
  11. A single individual's money is pocket change to the NFL.
  12. I think you guys are being optimistic. We have one guy on ESPN saying that Snyder needs to apologize for not changing the name years ago. The Native American advocate wants the NFL to atone for all the years of emotional violence caused by the name "Redskins". Future broadcasts of old Superbowl games will blank out the logo on the headgear and they will not refer to the team name. It will simply be the "Washington Football team". I'd say that's almost a certainly. I hope that it doesn't get worse than that. Fast forward 5 years and people will be accusing fans of "hate crimes" for wearing old Redskins gear. Or you might get fired from your job if you have a Skins photo on social media. Of course it sounds absurd. But is it? Ok, maybe ten years from now it will be like that.
  13. Hmmm. I'm skeptical of that number. It implies that all teams are worth a base 3.17B with the extra being the individual brand value. Even so, I wouldn't want to take a $230m hit to my wallet to placate advocates that aren't fans of the team. Now, if DC gives me a stadium at RFK to make up for it the I'm open for discussion. Money talks.
