Daniel Snyder, LaVar Arrington share 'surreal moment'

By Rick Maese

The Dan Snyder Goodwill Tour was hard to miss Friday at the Super Bowl Media Center in Dallas. The Redskins owner has never gone out of his way to talk with the media, but for more nearly three hours, he fielded question after question from a variety of media outlets.

He said the idea came from his top public relations official Tony Wyllie and concedes he was a bit apprehensive about touring "radio row" and meeting with reporters.

"He twisted my arm. Last night, I was going, 'I was just kidding about agreeing to it. I'm not going,'" Snyder said with a laugh. "I was with Jerry Jones, we were having a good ol' time. I was going, 'I'm not going.' [Wyllie] said, 'No, you promised.'"

He spoke with the team-owned ESPN 980, plus 106.7 The Fan, Ivan Carter from Comcast SportsNet's "Washington Post Live," Britt McHenry from ABC 7, the Washington Post and several national outlets, from WFAN-AM in New York to Jim Rome to ESPN radio affiliates in Boston, Dallas and Houston. No topic was off-limits, from the labor negotiations to Donovan McNabb to his recent lawsuit against Washington City Paper.

But perhaps the most interesting meeting came with LaVar Arrington, a Washington Post contributor and outspoken host of "The LaVar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes."

Arrington's station directly competes with Snyder's, which helps explain why Snyder had never before appeared on 106.7 The Fan. But also, Snyder and Arrington obviously had a well-publicized falling out. Arrington said he cannot recall the last time he spoke with Snyder -- until Friday afternoon when the two were seated next to each other, chatting on-air.

Arrington later called the meeting "surreal."


"It went well," Arrington said. "Look, here's the thing: For my part, I'm being sincere. Whether he's being sincere or not, I can only speak on my own behalf. I wanted to make sure that everybody knew that this was how I feel. I wanted him to hear me say it. There are so many things made about our relationship over the years. And to have that opportunity, for me, that was a surreal moment."

Said Snyder: "I think he recognizes that I've gotten older, he's gotten older. I've always felt about him positive, not negative. ... It was nice. It actually nice. ... We drafted him, and he was important to us. He's not a bad guy. We drafted him, and it didn't work out in the end. We had an issue. A lot of stuff went on."

Arrington doesn't attend Redskins game at FedEx Field and isn't shy about criticizing his former team. He said he's not sure how Friday's meeting will affect his future relationship with Snyder.

"If there's great follow-through from it, then that's wonderful. If not, I still had an opportunity to make sure that things were cleared up, and it wasn't behind his back or without him being involved," Arrington said. "We both had a forum together. That's all you can ask for. If anything comes out of it, great. If not, I still had an opportunity to look in his eyes and have a man-to-man."

The only reason Snyder was trolling through the media today was that he was looking for another unsuspecting journalist to sue.

He was also secretly hoping Lavar would biotch-slap him... for reasons only known to Snyder.

Hate to disagree, but still believe he is cheap -- at least when it comes to investing in indoor practice facilities, indoor plumbing (how often have you stood in a puddle of piss at FEDEX?), or anything else that is not directly associated with selling club seats and jerseys.

What exactly has he done to make this team better? Big screen TVs? So friggen what? What about the product on the field.

Every year it's the same. So what if he wastes a few million on a few "stars" or other marquee has-beens -- he'll just cut corners on the second stringers, special teamers and other backups -- and when the injury crunch comes -- as it inevitably will -- they'll raid the otehr teams' practice squads and waiver wires for warm bodies or other bargain basement players who come in cheap, don't expect much, and leave as soon as they can.

That's why the team has no depth, development or direction.

I've got to agree with scamp, vic. I'm not a snyder supporter. But one thing he is not is cheap.

I suspect that for them to update Redskins Park, they need more land. And they don't have it in Ashburn.

He inherited FEDEX. He didn't build it.

Sure he's made a ton of mistakes, but at least he has brought in a new skilled management team. They are in the beginning of a rebuild, and that takes time. Will they make every call correctly? No, they are human, they have made a few mistakes, and will make more. But I see improvement already. Next year should be better.

Look Vic, we agree that Danno is a POS. But I don't buy the BS that he is cheap. This dude gasses up the jets for the team for any little reason, he shells out megabucks for (has been) players, and he definitely parts with dollars to make dollars. He may be a football idiot and a jagoff but he ain't cheap.

I listened to the interview and to say that it was awkward is an understatement. To be fair though as soon as the "hard" questions came out, Dan's lawyers and handlers ushered the interview along (according to Dukes).

It's also Lavar's show but he came across as selfish, nervous, and inarticulate. Too much going on for him to use that opportunity to "bury the hatchet" with Snyder and then tell the listening audience that they were a part of something special (paraphrasing).

And then the 2 segments of Lavar rationalizing his need to hijack the interview for his own selfish reasons (getting back in the good graces of Snyder) was embarrassing.

In my opinion, Selvish Capers will be on the Redskin's active roster for the 2011 season, but don't expect him to see much playing time.

We'll file this report under the title "No news is not news."

I don't think anyone believed that S Capers would be ready to step into a starting role in his second year.

But reporting that he is making great strides to live up to what we already knew is sorta like predicting the sun will come up tomorrow.

In any event, the best thing that could happen is that the team again drafts 'offensive-defensive linemen project' type guys to develop and groom.

No Snyder isn't cheap. He's very uncheap in a drunken sailor on shore leave kind of way.

He's a profligate spender. The irony is he might as well be cheap. He'd have the same results were he cheap, and more cash in his pocket.

Just THINK of the money he's spent on Adam Archuletta, Deion Sanders, Donovan McNabb, the three second round receivers, Brunell, campbell, Jeff George, and Albert Haynesworth.

How much worse could the team have been without them?

The contrasts between Dan Snyder and Lavar Arrington yesterday could not have been sharper. One was playing the victim; the other was seeking reconciliation. One was self-aware, seeking to use the moment; the other was self-deluded, seeking to use the people sitting across from him and listening in their cars.

I do not know Lavar Arrington. I listen to him on the radio, I've seen him play, but that doesn't give me a friend's insight into who he is. The way he talked yesterday, the way he cut off the sharp questioning as it was reaching a crescendo and instead talked about reconciling with the Redskins' organization, struck me as utterly sincere, as jarring as it was. "Mr. Snyder" would do well to emulate this. Perhaps we all would.

Ravens players threatened to go to union about long playoff practices
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 5, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

One sign that Baltimore’s loss to the Steelers was particularly painful: There continues to be stories coming out of some team dysfunction before the game.

This one is pretty minor, but interesting. Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun reports some players threatened to go to the media and player’s union about the length of John Harbaugh’s practices before the game.

There were reportedly “tense moments” but the coaching staff and leadership “came to an agreement.” It appears the Ravens’ players weren’t confident they were being given the proper rest while preparing for Pittsburgh on a short week.

It’s an odd story, just like the Jim Zorn firing aftermath. We’ll ask the Ravens if they’d like to respond to this one.

'Anger' is a state of extreme violent behavior.

How do you 'manage' an extreme situation and/or apply clearly thought-out steps intended to contain it?

There is something inherently contradictory about self-containing that which is already out of control.

'Anger Management' is a self-contradictory, self-defeating term like 'Microsoft Works,' 'Military Intelligence,' 'Government Help,' and, finally, 'Albert Haynesworth Professional Athlete.'

The episode occurred Wednesday morning, and involved a 38-year-old man driving a 1994 Honda Civic and another driver, allegedly Haynesworth, both driving south on the Fairfax County Parkway, Broderick said.

Don't mind tooting my own horn. I gave these two plus their qb (Mike Hatline) a shout out a couple of weeks ago. Mike would be a decent UFA pick up. He's slow footed, but really improved his play this past season.

================================================

Derrick Locke, Randall Cobb jumping out on film
Todd McShay
Scouts Inc.
[+] EnlargeDerrick Locke
Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesDerrick Locke makes up for a lack of size with impressive versatility and effort.

I've spent a lot of time recently watching film with my colleagues Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl, and we've come away very impressed with Kentucky WR/RS Randall Cobb and RB Derrick Locke.

Locke is undersized (5-foot-8, 181 pounds) and often gets lumped in with a handful of smaller backs in the mid-round area because he didn't get much national exposure with the Wildcats. However, he does just about everything well and gets the most out of his physical tools, and in our rankings he is ahead of backs such as Jacquizz Rodgers, Noel Devine, Dion Lewis and Shane Vereen.

Locke can get lost at times in the passing game because of his size, but he is a savvy route-runner and one of the smoothest, most natural pass-catchers in the running back class. He will be overpowered at times as a pass-blocker but gives every ounce of effort in that area.

Most impressive, though, is Locke's efficiency as a runner. He runs low, shows great change-of-direction skills and does not waste many steps. He is patient attacking the line of scrimmage, sets up blocks well and has a keen eye for backside cutback lanes. Throw in his ability to quickly slip in and out of small creases and his willingness to lower his shoulder into defenders, and we put a third-round grade on Locke.

As for Cobb, the biggest question is where he will fit in the NFL. Much like 2010 second-round pick Dexter McCluster, Cobb is an undersized player who simply makes plays wherever he lines up and is the kind of guy a coaching staff will find a way to utilize.

Cobb has the quickness and silky-smooth athleticism to be a big-play threat after the catch as a receiver or as a ball carrier out of the backfield and in the return game. What stands out most, though, is his NFL-level route-running skills. Cobb uses subtle head bobs and shoulder moves, and his crisp cuts tell us he is ready to immediately compete with NFL defensive backs as a slot receiver. All of that makes him an early-second-round prospect.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the extreme competitiveness and impressive football character Cobb and Locke display, which contribute to their rising stock. Kentucky's defense was just okay in 2010 and the quarterback and offensive line were average at best, but the Wildcats hung around in a lot of games because of these two players. Locke could be seen lowering his shoulder while Cobb continued to make tough catches over the middle no matter the situation or score, and scouts notice that.

Ashburn, VA - Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder is preparing to file a libel lawsuit against Washington Post reporter Rick Maese concerning comments Maese made on the Redskins Insider blog. The suit will be filed when courts open on Monday morning, according to multiple sources.

"He referred to my client as 'Dan Snyder' in a blog post," said David Donovan, Dan Snyder's stooge lawyer.

"When you read 'Dan Snyder' you immediately think: buffoon, imbecile, mean-spirited little twerp," Donovan explained. "When this reporter, Maese, referred to my client by his own name, he maliciously and irreparably injured my client's reputation and business standing. The First Amendment only goes so far, you know."

Legal scholars have opined that this case likely has more merit than Snyder's suit against the Washington City Paper.

"I wouldn't even call my worst enemy's dog 'Dan Snyder,'" said Georgetown University law professor Michael Topmeyer. "You just don't do that. Snyder might really have a case, this time."

"We will crush Maese like a bug," Donovan said, "because, you know, Danny Boy's rich as s--t. I mean, he's got so much freakin' money. He even bought an original copy of the Bill of Rights he gave to Albert Haynesworth in case nature calls and the big fella can't get to a bathroom quick enough. This Maese joke probably just uses TP."

3. The Eagles 'could' win a SB

4. C.Rogers 'could' catch more balls than he drops

5. Lindsay Lohen 'could' stop f*cking up her life

6. Beep-beep 'could' stop being a pompous prick

And More on Dan Snyder:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/02/05/dan-snyder-believes-hes-matured-says-team-has-no-clue-what-they-will-do-mcnabb/

Redskins owner Dan Snyder made the rounds at radio row in Dallas Friday, a surprising occurrence for an owner with a famously antagonistic relationship with the media.

Snyder said he was encouraged to to be more media friendly Washington’s Senior Vice President and P.R. chief Tony Wyllie.

“He made me do this because he’s gotten the chance to know me over the last year intimately,” Snyder told a group of reporters Friday, including PFT. “And he said ‘I want everybody to know you.”’

He wound up having second thoughts about the media blitz.

“[Wyllie] twisted my arm,” Snyder said with a laugh. “Last night, I was going, ‘I was just kidding about agreeing to it. I ‘m not going. I was with Jerry Jones, we were having a good ol’ time. I was going, ‘I’m not going.’ [Wyllie] said, ‘No, you promised.’”

Snyder believes he’s improved as an owner. As proof, he cites his willingness to let Mike Shanahan and G.M. Bruce Allen handle the Albert Haynesworth situation without going crazy.

“Their style is their style. I’m not going to micromanage them,” Snyder said. ” I’m 46 years old now and I think I’ve matured into a good, quality owner. I was 34 years old when I bought the club, and I probably would be different. Right now, I’ve learned, I understand.”

Here are a few other highlights from Snyder’s chat:

On Donovan McNabb: “I’m hopeful. . . . He’s a real good player. Let’s see what happens.”

On what the Redskins will do with McNabb: “I don’t [Allen and Shanahan] have a clue which way they are going with anything yet.”

On Albert Haynesworth as a business investment: “I’m disappointed.”

Snyder indicated the team wants a new training facility and ideally it would be closer to their stadium. 2012 is the earliest that would happen.

Finally Snyder supported Dallas as a future Super Bowl site, but couldn’t help but throw in a jab about it: “I love it here in Fargo.”

I came across something that may be of interest to some of you RI dudes. After an examination, I wanted to post the results on RI, specifically making reference MistaMoe's thang as having a lot of pus and the word for that is "p u s s y" but RI blocks it because it is the exact same spelling as that word for "pie city". Curse you RI!

No it isn't....

'Anger' is a state of extreme violent behavior.

How do you 'manage' an extreme situation and/or apply clearly thought-out steps intended to contain it?

There is something inherently contradictory about self-containing that which is already out of control.

'Anger Management' is a self-contradictory, self-defeating term like 'Microsoft Works,' 'Military Intelligence,' 'Government Help,' and, finally, 'Albert Haynesworth Professional Athlete.'


Posted by: gimmesummoe | February 5, 2011 1:47 PM

Not trying to be a dick Moe, but I think the words in the phrase have to mean the opposite for it to be considered an oxymoron. "Jumbo shrimp" is the most obvious example. Anger management and the others are more like contradictory terms.

Favre -- yes, Favre -- aided Packers' run

Here is yet another sign of Brett Favre's vast powers: Even while he was playing with the Jets and then the Vikings, he still helped put the Packers back in the Super Bowl.

Please follow along: Back in 2008, the Packers traded Favre to the Jets for a conditional fourth-round pick that turned out to be a third-round pick.

NFL Insider Adam Schefter

Schefter Check out Schefter's Insider blog Insider for more NFL coverage and analysis.

• Blog network: NFL Nation
The Packers then traded that third-round pick, along with their second- and third-round picks, to New England for the Patriots' first-round pick -- where Green Bay used the draft's 26th overall selection on USC linebacker Clay Matthews.

New England didn't fare badly in the deal, either. It used Green Bay's second-round pick on cornerback Darius Butler, traded one of the third-round picks to Jacksonville for more picks and used its other third-round pick on wide receiver Brandon Tate. But because of the extra third-round pick it received for Favre, Green Bay had the ammunition it needed to land a real prize.

This past regular season, when he might have been the NFL's most valuable defensive player, Matthews rang up 13.5 sacks. This postseason, he's had 3.5 more sacks. And now, Matthews is as important to the Packers' defense as safety Troy Polamalu is to the Steelers' defense. He represents the biggest threat to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers' offense.

With one trade, Packers general manager Ted Thompson bolstered his reputation as a shrewd talent evaluator. But it is the ultimate irony of ironies.

As much as Favre detested Thompson, he inadvertently helped him construct the team that got Green Bay back to the Super Bowl.

Joe Gibbs allowed Gregg Williams to make many bad personnel decisions. Snyder's not my favorite, but let's be honest. Gibbs/Williams benched Arrington for no good reason, did not re-sign Antonio Pierce or Ryan Clark, lobbied for Adam Archuleta and Andre Carter, and traded Champ Bailey. Idiots.

Here is an idea:
Take the illustration from the Washington City Paper -- the one showing Snyder as a devil -- print it on stickers and silk screen it on T-shirts.

Sell them for $10. Donate the profits to the Simon Wiesenthal Center

Put the stickers all over DC and wear the shirts to any Snyder-backed event.

what is suing old ladies on social security that can't pay for the season tickets their late husbands signed up for?

what do you call charging for parking at Fan Appreciation Day?

what do you call selling stale peanuts at FEDEX from an airline that went bankrupt 18 months beforehand?
