    Snyder should be in porn; he's the biggest dick there is

  • seDCdude

    Snyder's a B.I.T.C.H., a very wealthy 1, but still a B.I.T.C.H.!

  • Not a fan

    In his letter to the Post, Snyder claims that he is motivated primarily by what he calls a false allegation that he forged names on sales documents when he worked as a telemarketer. So did he, or didn't he? If he did, City Paper should prove it. If he didn't, City Paper should apologize. I'm no Snyder fan. And Snyder, as a public figure, will have a hard time winning this suit. But if I were on the jury I would want to see City Paper prove what it says.

    @Not a Fan -

    That's not how it works. Dan Snyder has to prove that not only is the statement false, but that the paper published it specifically to defame him and cause him harm.

    The burden of proof is completely off the paper, and the paper stands by what is said.

    Dan Snyder may not have personally forged names, but his company did and was fined $3.1 million for it in 2001.

    So did WCP get the facts right or not?

  • Creativemeat

    Don't believe this is true since it's coming from a tabloid paper.

  • SEis4ME

    Seems like a relevant question to me.

    Did WCP post erroneous information about Snyder or not.

    That should be separate from whether he sues or not.

    Truth is a defense to defamation.

  • DG

    Craziest thing about this new filing is that Snyder demanded a jury trial. In DC Superior Court! Is he crazy?

  • Bud

    You guys, just because Dan Snyder and his lawyers write it in a lawsuit and submit it to a court, doesn't make it true.

    City Paper got the facts right and Snyder is full of shit as usual.

    The article stated that Snyder's company was found to have faked signups for their service, ie forged names.

    Snyder is pretending to think (or is stupid enough to think?) that City Paper accused him of personally forging the names when they were clearly referring to the company he owned forging the names.

    The crime and settlement were widely reported at the time, including by the AP, so there is no libel here. Read this account for a more detailed breakdown:

    Snyder is much like Fox news: he thinks if he repeats the same lie over and over again, people will believe it.

    It brings tears to my eyes when I think of the unity Snyder's name brings about. I am compelled by the overwhelming disgust for his tactics and I feel we are all patriots.

    Not the New England kind, the post-911 kind.

    I learned this from a highly reputable source. It should be investigated to insure accuracy. After Dan Snyder took over the Skins, he learned that airplanes [owned by small businessmen] were towing banners [ads, etc.] over the Stadium on game day and were making a profit without him getting a share. Snyder used his political muscle and found out that jurisidiction over the Stadium lay with the Anrews Air Force Base air controllers. He used that muscle to get the controllers to raise the height for flying banners over the stadium from 1,500 feet to 3,000 feet. At that height, the banners were unreadable. That put the plane owners out of business. With the billions he has made at that stadium, how greedy can you be?
