Dan Snyder Knows Business

We have been pretty hard on Dan Snyder in the past here at SU.com and once we even compared the Redskins owner to Kim Jong. The stats don’t lie that the team itself has been atrocious when you consider since Dannie took over the Skins in ’99, Washington has had only two winning seasons, a playoff victory and haven’t won more than 10 games in a season. Which means Snyder has to be considered one of the worst owners in all of the NFL, right? Well, there is another side to being an owner and Mr. Snyder does a stellar job in this area. The Skins earned $345 million in revenue just last season which is $25 million more than the New York Yankees. The franchise has nearly doubled in value since Snyder purchased the team for $800 million roughly a decade ago. They are now the third most valuable sports team in the world, behind Manchester United and America’s Team the Dallas Cowboys. Snyder may frustrate fans to no end, but if he could just step back and let someone else run the team he could be the most successful owner in professional sports.

Dan Snyder=Kim Jong Il

Sorry, but you asked for it Mr. Snyder.

Snyder has single handedly destroyed a storied program. I am a die hard Redskins fan for 35 years but you know what….Snyder needs to go. Unfortunately he can’t be fired.

The legions of dedicated ‘Skins fans had already started calling for his head but after the horrific show on Monday Night Football, Snyder better hire extra security and ask President Obama for the keys to Air Force One so he can make a quick getaway when the mobs come a knocking.

And now in his infinite wisdom Snyder had security take, destroy, confiscate any and all posters/banners that were in or coming in to FedEx Field. According to USAToday.com:
“Scores of angry fans took to Twitter, blogs, e-mails and message boards on Tuesday to assail Snyder and protest what they considered unfair and repressive tactics by security at FedEx Field to prevent criticism of the team owner.”

The policy concerning Banners read as follows about a month ago (according to Dan Steinberg at the www.washingtonpost.com):

Banners are permitted at FedEx Field; however, Guests may not display banners that advertise or mention products or services. Banners may not cover existing FedEx Field equipment or signage. Signs may not be made with metal or wood. Management reserves the right to remove any sign, including those deemed to be obscene, inappropriate or which obstructs the view of other Guests. For the safety of all Guests, banner poles are not permitted.”

But now reads:

Banners of any size are not permitted at FedEx Field.”

This sign was brought into the game Monday:
“Five security guards came down at halftime looking for [it],” Jennifer, the sign’s creator, e-mailed Dan Steinberg on Tuesday. “Everyone in the section played dumb, including the ticket guy for our section.”

Give me a break Snyder!

No one has to agree with your methods of running the team (G57…BINGO!!!) or how much money you spend trying to win a Super Bowl with players that should be collecting social security (Come on in Bruce Smith).

But this is simply crazy. You want to squash the first amendment in “your” stadium which puts you on the same playing field as Kim Jong Il. And in our nation’s capital nonetheless.

And one last thing…you may own this team…but without your fan base you have nothing.
