Dan Snyder-Owned Football Team Announces Deal With Dan Snyder-Owned Broadcasting Company to Air Games on Dan Snyder-Owned Radio Station

There's no dealing like self-dealing.
Earlier this week, the Washington Redskins and Red Zebra Broadcasting jointly trumpeted a new deal that will keep the team's game broadcasts on WTEM-AM "through the 2015 season."
In announcing the alliance, Chuck Sapienza, director of programming for WTEM's parent company Red Zebra, said, "We are very excited to continue our [...]

So Then Why Are the Washington Capitals on AM Radio?

You may have heard that two of the cuddliest folks on the D.C. sports scene have been playing the feud.
Ted Leonsis, a fabulous sports owner turned blogger, went after sportstalk station WTEM-AM in a recent blog post after Thom Loverro, a fabulous newspaper columnist turned blogger (and WTEM host), called the Leonsis-owned Washington Wizards an [...]

Dan Snyder Talks: Will Redskins Museum Showcase the Official Redskins Fishing Lure?

Waterboarded prisoners talk less than Dan Snyder's been talking lately. The former shut-in Redskins owner has done interviews with his employees, and also with his employees, and now with his fans. (I've put in a request to join the fun! Vegas is skeptical!)
Snyder's Q&A's thus far have been loaded with lame Q's — Larry Weisman, [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Will NFL Go for the Clooney Rule?

Steve Czaban says Dan Snyder really can step out of the way and let people who know how to better run the things he owns run them.
Czaban's proof? WTEM-AM.
"If people ask why can't Snyder just hire really good people and let them do what they do, well, that's exactly what he's doing on the radio [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Dan Snyder Tells Santa the Redskins Have No Waiting List?

Lamont Peterson lost by unanimous decision on Showtime on Saturday night in his bid to take Tim Bradley's WBO junior welterweight title. Peterson was knocked down early, and the judges' cards weren't close. Peterson, who as a teenager trained with a fight club in the basement of Lincoln Junior High in Columbia Heights, now has [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Did Theismann Pile On Riggins Because Riggins Piled On Theismann?

Commercials running all day on Dan Snyder's sportstalk station, WTEM, are pushing the pep rally that Snyder is sponsoring tonight at Dave & Buster's in Rockville.
Listeners are urged, "Bring your best 'Beat Dallas!' sign and you can win a six pack of club seats!"
I can't wait to see how high the "Worst Owner Ever!" banner [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Tony Kornheiser, Mike Wise, and Me?

Tony Kornheiser's acting like a bad guy with a dark heart again. Earlier this week, he went after Mike Wise on Dan Snyder's sportstalker, WTEM, spending much of his show ranting about a week-old column from Wise for no obvious reason. Kornheiser mocked Wise for wondering if the Redskins would win another game this season [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Somebody Once Wrote a Nice Dan Snyder Story? Does It Hold Up? No?

Today's the last day to enter Dan Snyder's Cheerleader Pride Giveaway Contest! Tomorrow, folks at Snyder's sportstalker, WTEM, will hold the drawing to find out the five 25-to-54-year-old males who've won the right to have Redskins cheerleaders — armed with sponges and buckets and zero self-esteem — come over and scrub down their cars.
Come on, [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Jim Zorn Will Definitely Be the Head Coach, Hopefully?

Another Redskins game that ain't a sellout. Another Redskins game that won't be blacked out.
The graphic above is from the latest installment of the now regular email blasts that precede every home game.
But no matter what your head tells you, remember: Dan Snyder says the Redskins have a waiting list of "over 200,000" names of [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Is Now a Good Time for Snyder to Promote ‘Night of Quarterbacks’?

In case you missed it: BeerInTheBathroomsGate™!
***
All day yesterday, Dan Snyder's radio station, WTEM-AM, was pushing an event called "ESPN-980 Night of Quarterbacks: Three Quarterbacks. Three Generations." That's a dinner produced by Snyder's sportstalker that is, at least for now, scheduled for Nov. 3 at Union Jack's in Ballston. The featured guests, according to the radio [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Remember When This Was Called ‘Redskins Weather’?

Hate to stomp on the weather beat that others at City Desk are already covering with gusto. But I'll stick to forecasts, and stay away from the retrocasting favored by the boss.
So, Sunday in Landover at kickoff: 47 degrees, rainy, winds 13 miles an hour from the north and 100 percent cloud cover. That used [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Will Prague Spring for Redskins Fans Survive Snyder’s Jack-Booted Thugs?

David Alprin had his anti-Dan Snyder artwork, or whatever you want to call the above paper plate thingee, confiscated at the gates of FedExField two weeks ago.
Alprin's a longtime Skins season ticketholder and was one of many fans who wanted to make a statement about the state of the franchise.
He'd stayed up late the night [...]

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: Stephette Hogette, the Bogus Hogette, Now Fears Real Hogettes!

I heard again last night from Stephette Hogette. He's the guy who stands accused of being a bogus Hogette.
He sent along a photograph, shown above, which he says was taken years ago at a Redskins game and, he says, proves that Stephette Hogette used to be accepted by the same folks who are now calling [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Could Car Wash Contest Be Snyder Punishing Redskins Cheerleaders for Promoting Rival WJFK?

Another day, another update on Dan Snyder's Cheerleader Car Wash Sweepstakes. Another chance to run that fab/yucky photo from Snyder's WTEM promotion, the one that's sucked in some of the most brilliant minds in new media to our humble comments section.
Seems Snyder doesn't really care who he jumps in bed with these days. His partner [...]
