Default here's why the Redskin's HC job is the worst in the league

Dan Snyder is trying to get a newspaper reporter fired.

...and here's the article that got Snyder's panties all bunched up.

May as well have Dee Snider owning that train wreck. This will not end well.

Living in Redskins country has been fun. Every week it seems this guy does something new to keep his organization a laughing stock.

Almost the best owner in the NFL for anyone not a Redskins fan, especially other NFCE teams.

In fairness, that article is amazingly bad. Sure, the guy is horrible. But that article is an unprofessional hack job. I wish I could fire Snyder and the McKenna guy.

That said, the best advice anyone could give Snyder in a situation like that is to take the high road. And maybe stop doing so much stupid stuff.

Snyder just doesn't get it. He's the worst personality you can put with that much money. His panacea for Every problem is money.

The funniest part of that article is where he writes that Bowlen gave Snyder a big sales job on Shanahan, and then Snyder hired Shanahan, taking Bowlen off the hook for $7 mil. True or not, it's a pretty good story. It seems like every time the Broncos really want to screw somebody, they turn to Snyder.

I know how you feel, I am in Cowboy country and this year was awesome. Yes the bickering on the Mane was bad but holy crap, local sports radio was pure comidy. It's much easier to laugh as another teams misfortunes, especially when all the locals were convinced they were going to win the first home super bowl.

Snyder just needs an ass kicking. I can't beleoieve he took tickets from season tickets holders since the 40's and then proabably sold them on stubhub.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder drops lawsuit against City Paper

By Mike Jones

The Washington Redskins announced Saturday evening that owner Daniel M. Snyder has dropped his lawsuit against the Washington City Paper.

Snyder in April filed a lawsuit against the City Paper and reporter Dave McKenna on the grounds that an article that ran in November 2010 defamed the owner's character.

Snyder said that he did so upon the urging of senior vice president Tony Wyllie. This week Snyder in an interview with the New York Times Magazine said that he actually never read the article.

The team released the following statement:
“The lawsuit was pursued as a means to correct the public record following several critical factual misstatements in the Washington City Paper article,” Wyllie said. “In the course of the defendants’ recently filed pleadings and statements in this matter, the Washington City Paper and its writer have admitted that certain assertions contained in the article that are the subject of the lawsuit were, in fact, unintended by the defendants to be read literally as true. Therefore, we see nothing further to be gained at this time through continuing the lawsuit. We prefer to focus on the coming football season and the business at hand. We remain committed to assisting with responsible reportage of the Team and the many people involved in our organization, including Dan Snyder, and the principle that the truth and the facts matter in responsible journalism has been vindicated.”
The Redskins sent out the release at 8:20 p.m. Saturday, roughly 20 hours before the team kicks off the 2011 season at home against the New York Giants.

I actually think the article does a pretty good job laying out a consistent pattern of ineptitude. Hard to ignore that many data points.
