Snyder needs to focus on his team

By Joe Berman, Chevy Chase

I hope Daniel Snyder’s advisers and lawyers are telling him (even though he obviously listens to no one) that suing the Washington City Paper [“Redskins owner Dan Snyder’s face-off with City Paper gets uglier,” Style, Feb. 2] will be about as well received as suing a 72-year-old woman who could no longer afford season tickets because of financial trouble.

If Mr. Snyder wants his negative image to go viral, there is no better way to do so than to continue down this path. What’s really laughable is that the City Paper article was written in November and almost forgotten. Now this suit is driving even more readers to the article.

Advice to Mr. Snyder: Stop whining and work on putting a decent football team on the field.

Though, he should continue to portray his true inner self, so others will be reminded of his true character.

He has "defamed the Skins and insulted the Fans"

The Post has never met a libel suit it liked, and doesn't particularly care for Snyder, so its position here is no surprise, nor its choice of letter to the editor.

I would never have heard of that article if not for the Post's report. I ended up posting the City Paper article on Facebook for all my friends who are Redskins fans. Way to go Mr. Snyder!

The path to a Skins team in which fans and the community generally can take pride is through Firing Dan Snyder and the resultant sale of the team. Fans will FIre Dan Snyder by not paying him for ripping off fans financially and his chronic mismanagement of the team (seemingly inherent in his having any involvement with the Skins), i.e., not buying tickets to games, and in no other way financially benefitting Snyder.

A new owner, having seen how fans used their financial power, will be sure to manage the team with dignity and in a way that will make the team on the field one worth supporting -- and the fans will.

As for Snyder, let him use his $s for a computer system and program that will let him play video football like the kid he is, and without the continuing harmer of the Skins that he is.

You know what, no. Keep this story alive.

Keep the bright light of illumination on that petulant, juvenile jerk and his sleazy business practices. Because it is about time.

This insecure bully has tried to threaten, intimidate and buy out anyone who has the nerve to point out that he is scum. Mckenna's article was accurate and true and that is what made Snyder so angry. He is embarrassed.

Every action Snyder has taken in response to the article has served as evidence for everything in that article.

Ant-semtism?? He's lowlife. "Just an apology" He's a liar.

Snyder's reputation is solidified. Perfect.

This story has already hit media outlets all over the country and gone viral. This is the best case of karmic comeuppance I've seen in a long time. And no one deserves it more than Daniel Snyder

Go to the City Paper's web and donate to their legal fund.
