Lindsay Czarniak’s No Longer Wearing Dan Snyder’s Shirts?

Horrendous news for folks who loved watching Lindsay Czarniak dress up in licensed Washington Redskins gear while delivering, um, journalism about the football team: WRC's news readers aren't working for Dan Snyder this preseason.
At least that's what an official for the NBC affiliate tells me.
WRC's news department has a long track record, stretching all the [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: George Michael Lives On?

"We're 4-13. I can hardly even say it." Jim Zorn during last night's post-game press conference, erroneously reflecting on the Redskins record heading into the 16th and last game of the season. The coach's misery won't end until a trip to San Diego to face the Chargers and Norv Turner, perhaps the only guy who [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Hey, Dan Snyder: How’d That Dick Clark Deal Work Out for Six Flags Stockholders?

It's not clear to me which is the bigger travesty: Vinny Cerrato keeping his job so long after running the Redskins into the ground, or Dan Snyder staying atop Six Flags despite making all the wrong moves since taking over the now-bankrupt theme park chain in 2005.
Six Flags' reorganization is nowhere near complete, and god [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Are Snyder’s Redskins Worth Only 17 Cents a Share Now, Too?

Above is an ad e-mailed out by the Redskins ticket office this week. As you read this, remember, for chuckles, that just a couple months ago Redskins executive Mitch Gershman was claiming in press releases that the team had a waiting list of "over 200,000."
Sure, the Skins waiting list has long been bogus. But this [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Monday Morning Coming Down!

Clearest sign that it's about time to crank out the Countdown to Cowher™: Jim Zorn's post-game interview with Sonny Jurgensen, heard on Dan Snyder's WTEM.
Here's the opening:
Sonny Jurgensen: You had one offensive touchdown...
Jim Zorn: Thank you.
Sonny Jurgensen: You've got to get into the end zone...
Jim Zorn: Yes.
Uh oh.
Dan Snyder and Jurgensen are cigar smoking buddies. [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Where’s Dan Snyder? Where’s Dan Snyder’s Crisis PR?

Dan Snyder was in the news a lot while I was on vacation. He's keeping whatever thoughts he has about the Washington Post's series on selling tickets to scalpers and litigation against down-on-their-luck grandmothers to himself.
While some team lawyer nobody ever heard of named David Donovan did radio and print interviews attempting to counter James [...]

Pro-’Skins Sportscasters: A Grand Tradition

The Washington Post's Paul Farhi, a great pariah in bloggerville, is just as outraged/bemused as Washington City Paper's own Dave McKenna about the attire of the supposedly independent local broadcasters at Redskins games. Have a look:

Cheap Seats Daily: How Come Sports Journalists Ain’t Journalists?

During the Redskins Broadcasting Network's telecast from Baltimore, Lindsay Czarniak asked Albert Haynesworth, in street clothes, if it was enjoyable watching his teammates play the Ravens.
"Nah, it ain't enjoyable," Haynesworth said.
Which means one thing: Big Al didn't bet the Cheap Seats Daily Double™!
Because had he followed Cheap Seats Daily's Tout #1 and bet this month's [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Anti-American, Anti-Bobblehead-Freak Rules Restored for Van Pelt Night!

In case you missed it: Jeopardy genius Ken Jennings puts "Dead Balls Era" in print! Man, we're he's clever!
***
The Redskins cut free agent receiver Jaison Williams yesterday, reducing their supply of Guys Named Williams to a mere four — Eddie, Edwin, Mike and Roydell — and stealing from me the option of filling many more [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Bet on the Nationals NOW!

Competition's coming at Dan Snyder from all sides. Just as his monopoly on sports radio went all to crap with WJFK morphing from guy talk to an all-sports station ("The Fan"?....geez), now comes a rival to Snyder's fan site, extremeskins.com: Burgundy and Gold Obsession, or BGObsession for short, has gone live.
The punchline here is that [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Lincecum and Obama Leave Nats Fans Dazed, Confused

This just in: Our Amazin' Nats are a national punchline. First the Wall Street Journal used the team's woes in the lede of its Sonia Sotomayor hearings coverage, comparing the hopelessness of being a Republican senator with the hopelessness of being a Nat.
Then President Barack Obama, in the broadcast booth during the All-Star telecast, told [...]
