Dan Snyder Hoping The Truth Is Not An Absolute Defense

    The transparently fake loveable and huggable Dan Snyder trying to act like a good guy to Redskins fans around here is apparently on haitus, surely to the chagrin of anti-player NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Snyder is thinking of suing an alt-weekly and wants a writer fired because of an unflattering article. If Snyder didn't want bad things written about him he wouldn't be a decidedly bad human being.

    Here's the story in question...

    And here's the story about the lawsuit. He may also be digging into Dan Steinberg's emails because of some sort of absurd promotion conspiracy.

    And when Danny sues, does McKenna countersue because of a nuisance suit?

    Where should checks be sent for the McKenna defense fund?

    Snyder doesn't get nearly enough credit nationwide for how awful he is. I bet most sports fans wouldn't even list him in their top 10 of worst owners, yet he is #1 in football -- ahead of Al Davis for sure -- and his only competition in any sport is Sterling and Dolan.

    didn't we have a thread on this article in November?

    Yes.

    But now we have follow-up legal action.

    Yes. It's a great article and I laughed out loud a few times. This was my favorite blurb.

    Redskins Unfiltered: Feature on Redskins.com designed to “offer fans an a la carte menu of information,” as Snyder told The New York Times in 2006. In practice, Unfiltered was mainly used to rebut everything written about the team by The Washington Post. Immediately after the Post ran a story that mentioned players eating “fast food” at Redskins Park, for example, Snyder staffer Larry Michael produced a long video in which team employees testified that Baja Fresh was NOT fast food. Unfiltered came back to haunt management when players used its video as evidence in a union grievance over “contact drills” during voluntary workouts. “You know how we caught them?” said NFLPA chief Gene Upshaw. “We saw it on their Web site.”
     
  9. Mean-spirited, stupid and too much money are a bad combination.

    Snyder is such a worm. He knows he won't win a suit, but he could force the defendants to spend money in their own legal defense which could affect their bottom line.

    No, Peter Angelos does many, many good deeds with his money. He tried so hard to keep baseball out of DC, but he's not nearly as vindictive, mean-spirited, and nasty as Snyder is.
