Cheap Seats Daily: Will Sherm Lewis Fail? Or Will Sherman Lewis Fail?

Cheap Seats Daily and its inferiority complex ravaged sister publication remain the go-to news organs for coverage of what the Redskins have officially dubbed the Cheerleader Car Wash Sweepstakes.
Yesterday, in this very space, we blew the lid off the latest listener contest for Dan Snyder's sportstalk station, WTEM-AM, in which the Redskins owner promises to [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: How Bad Is Dan Snyder Pimping the Redskins Cheerleaders?

"How would you like to see the Redskins take on the Cowboys? — AND have the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders soap up and scrub down your car???"
Well? How would you like that?
Check out that ad!
It appears on the Web site for WTEM, Dan Snyder's sports talk station, to promote the latest listener contest. Top prize will [...]

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: Portis Wants You to Get Your $700 Worth?

Even in the NFL, employees take their cue from the boss. So all the Redskins are feeling persecuted these days.
"Our media have been our harshest critics," whined Mike Sellers during his media session yesterday.
He's the fullback who dropped what would have been a touchdown pass from Jason Campbell in Sunday's game with the Rams.
Sellers' comments, [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Could Chief Zee Sway Supreme Court Case?

There's trouble in maroon-and-black-and-yellow land. The mood is so toxic that even a nice plea to help out Chief Zee, the headdress-wearing longtime unofficial mascot of the Redskins and among the nicest, naivest, old-school mega-racists you'd ever meet, turned real ugly real fast.
Somebody posted a notice on Dan Snyder's message board, Extremeskins, alerting fans that [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: And If You Break Michael Vick’s Leg, We’ll Throw in a Chew Toy!

Today's Washington Post has a special pro football insert headlined "NFL '09."
The most interesting reading in the 14-page pullout comes in one of its few advertisements. Main Line Animal Rescue, a Philadelphia group that apparently specializes in saving "Bully Breeds" of dogs, bought space in the section.
The ad copy, placed alongside a photo of what [...]

FanZoneGate™ Update: WJFK Boss Wants No Part of Feud After Getting Schooled By Dan Snyder!

Somebody should tell Sam Rogers that feuds are good for radio. He won't take my word for it.
Rogers is Senior Vice President and Market Manager of CBS Radio for the DC cluster, which means he's the boss at WJFK, the city's new sportstalk station and rival to Dan Snyder's WTEM.
Rogers' station also tried to create [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Dan Snyder’s Sneaky Parking Charge Nets Him Millions?

For the Titanic platform (or maybe not!) of the latest City Paper, I wrote about Dan Snyder's newest parking scheme.
Snyder now adds a parking surcharge to the cost of every ticket sold at non-football events at FedExField. All other venues around town put parking charges, if there are any, in the advertised price of the [...]

Cheap Seats Daily:Will Dan Snyder Sign La Canfora’s Paychecks? Is Joe Biden the Anti-Arnold?

Jason La Canfora goes to work for Dan Snyder?
That's essentially what Pro Football Talk is saying. According to the site, La Canfora has been hired away from the Washington Post by the NFL Network, the future cable powerhouse owned by the NFL, which is run by the NFL owners, none brasher than Snyder.
On some levels, [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Swooning for Ted Leonsis, DeAngelo Hall; Free Preakness Tout Service!

A day after the crushingest defeat of his Capitals ownership, Ted Leonsis went on "The Sports Reporters" on WTEM-980.
He was awesome.
Hosts Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin brought up the rumored but unspecified injuries to Alex Ovechkin and Mike Green, giving Leonsis an opportunity to blame his team's ouster from the Stanley Cup playoffs on mitigating [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Dan Snyder and Satan

As first rumored on DCRTV, Brian Mitchell has been let go by sportstalk station WTEM-AM.
That means Mitchell's now ex-employer was Dan Snyder.
The same guy has fired the same guy before.
In 2000, Snyder's first offseason of running the Redskins, Mitchell, the team's all-time punt return and kickoff return leader, was let go.
In Thom Loverro's 2007 book, [...]

Cerrato Shows Up for His Radio Show, Blames Season on Pete Kendall

Vinny Cerrato and the Boomtown Rats don't like Mondays.
At least, Cerrato's been AWOL from his radio show on Dan Snyder's radio station, WTEM, on mornings after recent games, as the Redskins fell from overachieving underdogs to just plain dogs.
But the Skins won yesterday, and Cerrato was back as host this morning.
The Redskins' chronically maligned personnel [...]

Cerrato Gives Zorn a Vote of Confidence. I Think…

Today on his irregular radio show on Dan Snyder's sports station, WTEM, Vinny Cerrato was asked point blank if he wanted Redskins head coach Jim Zorn to come back next season.
"Um, yes," Cerrato responded, before the Redskins top personnel man and major market radio host blamed the media for making Zorn's return an issue.
At [...]

Vinny Cerrato Hides in Plain Sight…or Sound

Vinny Cerrato showed up for his radio show today on Dan Snyder's WTEM. Sort of.
Cerrato skipped Monday's broadcast of "Inside the Red Zone with Vinny Cerrato," so this program should have provided fans their first shot at the Redskins executive vice president, football operations since the team's latest crap-like performance in Baltimore and subsequent Portis/Zorn [...]

Vinny Cerrato Stays Off the Air

Vinny Cerrato, the Redskins executive vice president—football operations and house DJ, did not show up for his semi-weekly radio show this morning on Dan Snyder's sports station, WTEM-AM.
Cerrato took a Jason Campbellesque pounding during last Monday's show after the Skins went down so meekly to the New York Giants.
One caller, speaking for legions of fans, [...]
