Daniel Snyder Ain't Saying Nothing

The media love fest for the owner of the Washington NFL franchise continues.  At first, I thought I was one of the few area bloggers begging for accountability not only from the ownership, but from the fans who allow its reign to wreak havoc on their team.

But the Washington Post has begun to really tear into the true issues with this team, which all begin with Daniel Snyder.  First, Sally Jenkins rips Snyder to shreds with a column, which Colin Cowherd gleefully read on his show last week.

Today, it’s Leonard Shapiro’s turn.

This is a guy who once made his fortune with a company called Snyder Communications, and yet about the only time he meaningfully communicates with the people who passionately live and die with his team comes during photo ops, when he holds up the jersey of another high-priced superstar he’s just signed in the offseason.


Something has to give here, people.  The Washington Post has it’s teeth sunk into Daniel Snyder and won’t let go until Snyder either sells this team, or vows publicly to keep his hands off of it.

And the Washington Post is one of the few newspapers not dying, so their bite isn’t one easily healed.
