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 [...]

Brett Haber Honors Glenn Brenner and the Good Old Days of DC Sportscasting

The biggest sports story in town last week wasn't a win or a loss or a trade or an owner's gaffe. It was a memorial service. George Michael's.
The goodbye to the longtime WRC-4 sportscaster also served as a memorial to an era where local news operations were a much bigger deal than today. So even [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Pat Bowlen to Dan Snyder: Take My Ex-Wife, Please!

Right before Christmas, I read an ESPN report that said Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen gave a "ringing endorsement" of his former coach, Mike Shanahan, during private conversations with Dan Snyder. I thought that was an odd leak, given that Bowlen just fired Shanahan a year ago, after Shanny lost a four-game division lead in [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Mike Wise Would Write the Sex Column All Over Again?

Mike Wise should write a reverse advice column. He'll throw his problems out there, and readers will respond with support and counsel. He got a good start to this new career with Saturday's article confessing to, well, some sort of personal sexual derring do. Bad derring do!
In this space yesterday, I sorta blasted Wise for [...]

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: Why Is Dan Snyder Shrinking?

Dan Snyder came out of hiding or France or wherever he went while Rome burned to say he's sorry. Well, to say "we" are sorry.
"We feel frustration and we feel sorry for our fans," Snyder told a crowd at an event the Redskins organized. He was standing at a podium in front of a gang [...]

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: Who the Hell Would Buy a Redskins Scratch Ticket Now?

How over are the Redskins?
So over that on WRC, Lindsay Czarniak did her sports report Sunday night without ANY visible Skins logos on her person. (Fact.)
So over that Sonny Jurgensen didn't tussle with Jim Zorn in his postgame interview. (Fact.)
So over that starting this week, the Virginia Lottery has changed first prize for its $20 [...]

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 [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Jason Campbell Goes 1-for-7; Adam Dunn Goes 2-for-4

Jason Campbell was 1-7 on Saturday night. That stat'd be a cause for concern if a Nats cleanup hitter posted it at the plate. For a QB in a West Coast offense, it's death.
But, it's only preseason, the team won, he's only in the second year of Jim Zorn's offense, he's had several offensive coordinators [...]
