So the Dan Snyder/Mike Shanahan relationship could be getting rockier. This is from Eric Bickel’s Twitter, @EBJunkies. Bickel is a cohost for 106.7 the FAN DC’s Sports Junkies. He tweeted this today from the US Open.
Some interesting chatter today and yesterday hanging out with the “real media” types at Congressional. Not claiming to be breaking news- but…
Take this how you like it.. as gossip/rumors… I don’t care. But one respected media person told me he’s heard from several different..
people that Snyder already “doesn’t like Shanny”. One reason given is the losing which wears on everybody… but also that Shanny doesn’t..
“kiss his ass” the way other coaches have under Snyder. An ex given was Shanny won’t be “Snyder’s show pony” after games at Fed Ex….
in the suite or around the stadium after games. I was told Gibbs amongst others frequently did this to placate Dan to some extent.
This falls in line with our wristband story where we learned that Snyder berated Shanahan in front of several people including Bruce Allen.
The gist is in one respected media person’s opinion… Shanny is on much thinner ice than people realize. Take it for what you want.
If this is the case, we will need to see some winning here or else things may get dicey.
