    This has been broadly covered by print, radio, and television. The analysis and opinion by channel 9 is entirely typical.
    I do take issue with one part of channel 9's segment. At about the 2:15 mark in the segment the commentator observes that in other areas of his life and career Snyder has been able to throw money at a problem in order to fix it. I disagree, and would point to the current state of the Redskins and 6 Flags as counter examples.
    In other words, money isn't everything.

    Someone should clue Dan Snyder in: You shouldn't pick fights with people who buy bandwidth by the terabyte.

    Great commentary by Haber. Maybe Danny boy will sue him too.

    All area media organizations should pitch in to help CP finance its legal defense and stand up to Snyder and his pathetic bully boy lawsuit.

    Here Here Haber!

    I bow down to Haber.... He said things I wish I could put more eloquently.

    To Drez:
    You think Snyder ISN'T throwing money at things? He throws money at things...FOOLISHLY. Foolishly or not, he does throw money at things. Haber is right. Snyder is dangerous enough to cause innocent people their livelihood.

    Don't be fooled by the bluster, Snyder is a lightweight.

    He's only the 365th richest American. Dude barely made the Forbes 400.

    WOW!, Brett Haber a sports caster and just a sports caster on a fourth rate station in a major market, stick with sniffing jock staps and giving scores and by the way isn't Gannett ready to send you packing?

    "Stepping on our first amendment rights." I couldn't have put it better myself.

    Join My FACEBOOK page. I vow to never go to a 'Skins game again as long as Snyder is Prez...

    'Peyton', just remember the First Amendment doesn't cover children throwing rocks, it's a double edge sword!

  • Ohhhh Danny

    Rick Mangus, I have to give you credit. I am glad to see you are earning your hard earned money working for the Redskins organization. Are you an employee in the Ashburn office or do you work for the PR firm trying to keep this from crashing. Either way, we all see right through you. Nice try, but there is no way to defend this so give it up already. (Hell, you are probably the real Danny Snyder - Danny is petty enough to be on these boards trying to defend this...he's not exactly a "titan" of industry now that the long distance telephone wars are over)

  • Rick Mangus

    'Ohhhh Danny', If you followed this section of the paper you would know that I am not Dan Snyder nor an employee of the Redskins. This paper is run by a bunch of children who thinks it's ok to throw out bombs like this and that there will be no consequences for such actions, well guess what, there is!
