The Huffington Post unveiled its new sports section yesterday, and minus the lack of diversity among the writers, you can find decent coverage of daily sports content.

Of particular note to the DMV demographic is one of the page’s entrants into the “Destroy Daniel Snyder” media campaign; this one authored by Thomas B. Edsall . Among the choice grafs aimed squarely at Snyder’s dome:

Snyder — professional football’s answer to Donald Rumsfeld — set out to destroy the Redskins, buying the wrong coaches and players, milking every source of revenue, and submitting one of the most loyal fan bases in the nation to torture.

Most grating about Snyder’s tenure is that he is piling up millions despite his gross incompetence. The team is the most profitable of the National Football League, and Snyder’s take continues to grow no matter what the win loss record.

Again, it must be noted that Snyder’s wealth as an inept owner is a direct result of idiot fans and not any particular marketing savvy on his part. And truly, it is grating on the souls of the objective.

But hey, we should all be thankful that there are few unknown unknowns about what exactly plagues this franchise.
