Dan Snyder's E:60 segment: the video


I've already written three items on Daniel Snyder's E:60 appearance: the trailer, the excerpts and the reaction. So I probably should include the full package, as found by Hogs Haven. Judge for yourself. (It continues below.)

(See also, Eric Bickel's piece on MASNSports.com.)

Did the piece just end like that? The video stopped in the middle of his interview.

Anyhow, thought it was a pretty good piece and glad to finally see some balance to media's coverage of the guy. Clearly, he is not the evil man many Skins fans have come to believe he is. And the more he gets out there and does these interviews, the more people will see that.

(Noticed one small mistake: Rachel Nichols said the Redskins made the playoffs in Snyder's first year and that it was the first time the Skins had reached the post season in 6 years. It was actually 7 full years between the 92 season and the 99 season, or january of 93 and january of 2000.)

Dan Snyder is a misunderstood misanthrope. He's the nicest guy in the world, never makes a mistake.

The world would be a better place if we all strive to be more like Dan Snyder.

No matter which PR firm you hire, the smell still remains. He's still a greedy piece of crap.

If this shows anything, it further enforces the fact that he is a rich fan who has bought his way in to the locker room of his favorite team. HE never says he made mistakes, it's just reported. His personal battles have no bearing on how he has treated the clients/guests/fans of the Redskins. We all have difficulties. It is our right as HUMANS to be treated well.

Puff piece.

I love the bit about not having an owners manual. Well you do have case studies galore. Look at the sustained success of the Steelers, Patriots and Colts this past decade. How did they do it? Build through the draft, make smart decisions, use free agency sparingly.

Yeah, it's definitely a media conspiracy to prop up Dan Snyder by claiming he apologized when he never did. Are you really this utterly insane in real life Leeguru, or just when you start typing?

Because of the loyal fans that date back 30 years, the Redskins are a money machine. Danny is making money hand over fist. Therefore, in Danny's mind, the Redskins are a success. It's all business. Any free agents, draft picks, coaches and GMs are just marketing gimmicks.

I have no doubt he wants to win he just had to make us suffer through ten years of mismanagement before he would admit he doesn't know how to run a football team. I think the guy is a weasel but I have no idea what he’s really like. I don’t really care. Many decent folks felt JKC was a heartless jerk but the fans loved him because he was a character and he understood that an owner should leave the day-to-day operations in the hands of football people. I hope Snyder has had his Steinbrenner moment – that moment when he finally realizes that the only way to get what he really wants is to step back and let the talent do the work. Allen and Shanny are solid NFL professionals who can make this team consistently competitive if Snyder lets them. We shall see.

BTW, if Snyder is a true fan of the Redskins, he will get the team out of that disaster of a stadium as soon as it’s financially feasible. FedEx is the worst game day experience in the NFL. It’s an architectural corpse, located next to nothing interesting, and 20,000 seats too big. 90,000 seats just means 20,000 fans of the opposing team get to attend and diminish the home field advantage that now can’t come close to what we had at RFK. Here’s the kicker though, next to Jerryland it’s the biggest moneymaker in the league – a license to print money. Indeed, given the debt service Jerry has to make on his Arlington palace, FedEx likely nets more cash. A true fan of the team would move it back into the district to a 75,000 seat facility with views of the Mall, near the metro and urban bars and restaurants. But that would mean less cash from opposing fans and concession competition for the team from surrounding businesses. My guess is Snyder loves the ex-presidents too much to make this move – a move that the fans of the team deserve. FedEx needs to see the wrecking the ball and Skins belong in DC.
