Dan Snyder not a fan of freedom of the press or speech?


On November 19th 2010, Dan McKenna of the Washington City Paper wrote what I found to be an interesting read that pointed out all of the failings of Snyder since being owner of the Washington Redskins.

Now for having wrote what many of us already know it appears that Snyder is now targeting McKenna and wants him fired. It is even being said that a possible lawsuit against the papers owners for defamation is being considered…

To borrow a line from the wrestler known as The Miz (who I’m not a fan of) Really? Really? Really?

I mean come on now Snyder instead of taking a piece that really is just a collection of facts and learning from it you rather just silence the source of the article?

Who are you now Hitler? Is this some type of dictatorship and you must crush anyone who opposes you?

I’m not going to go in to a long rant on all of your shortcomings as an owner because to be honest I’d probably still be writing it come this time tomorrow. So to keep it short to this point you have sucked as an owner and it did not take Mr. McKenna pointing it out for everyone to know it.

The media both on a local and national level talk about it, the fans of the Redskins talk about it and even fans of other teams talk and laugh about it. It is no secret you have sucked as an owner.

Did you not catch the Ronnie Mervis petition to buy the Redskins?

or how about any of the other countless petitions to have you removed as owner? Those do not get started because you are doing a great job.

You are a smart businessman and I’m sure to get where you are well you probably had failures and more than likely you learned from them. Learning from those failures made you better in the long run. Now do the same as an owner embrace your shortcomings and learn from them so that you can become a better owner of the Redskins.

You need to print McKenna’s article up and put it on the wall of your office so that it can serve as a guideline of what not to do anymore.

p.s If you want to get me fired for this well I write for free…..

    I love you man!! I wrote something very similar to you on my site! I didn’t use the name Dan b/c I can’t afford a lawsuit so I used “owner”! lol Whats wrong with this guy? If he hasn’t gotten it yet, I’m afraid he never will! I came up with a name for the soap opera at Redskins Park, “As The Redskins Burn”! I was thinking of running a name the Redskins Soap Opera Contest, but not sure yet.

      I honestly hope that it does not go to court and if it does well I seriously hope that Snyder loses…

      If Snyder were to get the guy fired and then go to court and win what type of example would that set?

      Could movie critics or people that review cd releases also be sued to if they give a bad review on something?

      I really hope that Snyder turns it around as an owner and thought that maybe firing Cerrato and all was a good sign. With this though well I just don’t know because it seems like a same old Snyder move. I would not be surprised if Snyder tried to buy out the paper now that the guy writes for just so he can control what is said about him.

        I agree with you 100%, Snyder is such a little wussie and I really can’t believe he is doing this crap! I had never read the Dave McKenna article until yesterday and can’t believe all the $hit “Dishonest Dan” has been involved in over the years. He is nothing more than a $hyster, Crook and Wannabe Bully that needs a spanking like a child because timeouts just aren’t working anymore.

          I read the email where he named things he said were not true and I remember a lot of them having been reported…

          So he better get ready to sue a whole lot of people including papers like the Washington Post

    Dan, Dan, Dan, what can I say? I didn’t even know there was such a thing as the City Paper before you stuck your foot in your mouth. Now I’m seriously considering subscribing to the paper. I’m pretty sure they had low subscriber numbers before this (compared to other well known papers), but now thanks to you making a mountain out of a molehill, their numbers will more than likely bet all records for number of new subscriptions per hour.

    You have shot yourself in the foot AGAIN. Should have just kept your mouth shut, rolled with the punches and most of us probably wouldn’t have even noticed. Now, once again, you have given this once great franchise a black eye. In my humble opinion.
