Sorry Redskins Fans, Dan Snyder Ain’t Going Anywhere

From the July 17 Outkick the Show.

Redskins.  So, some of you know this. In my prior life, I was a lawyer who investigated sexual harassment claims.

I would come into a company when someone made a claim, interview everybody, write up a report for the company to try to figure out if it was true.

What I look at from the Washington Redskins’ perspective is, I’ve been involved in investigations like these.

It appears that the five people involved in inappropriate behavior with the Redskins are no longer there.

And that Dan Snyder is not directly connected to any misbehavior itself.

As that appears to be the case, I don’t see how the NFL can force out Dan Snyder.

I think he needs to clean-up the culture inside the Redskins organization and he also needs to win a few more football games.

Compare it to Mark Cuban. The NBA allowed Mark Cuban to keep his team what was an infinitely worse situation inside of the Mavericks.

This is not analogous to the Jerry Richardson situation with the Carolina Panthers because Jerry Richardson himself was involved.

I think what’s going to happen here is Dan Snyder is going to clean house some. But ultimately he is going to continue to own this team as we go forward and I’m not sure that there is any additional impact.

I do think that this factored in with the decision by Dan Snyder to change the name of the Redskins.

He knew the story was coming, he knew he was under assault over the Redskins’ name.

And he decided he couldn’t fight a two-front war, and so he decided to go ahead and change the name.

  1. Hey Clay,
    Thanks for that important point. I don’t know who’s right or wrong, but we don’t need to smear people wrongly. I’m not a Redskins or a Snyder fan.
    All the best,

  2. If you use the word “ain’t” in the title, go full retard and use “goin’ nowhere” instead of “going anywhere!”

    I agree Clay, but this is 2020. Who knows what will happen. I mean, racial protestors tore down a Frederick Douglass and Ulysses S Grant statue. Frederick Douglass needs no explanation. Grant was the winning General for the North in the Civil War. During his presidency, he basically wiped out the KKK in the South during his presidency that had formed and gained major influence in the South under Southern-sympathizer Johnson’s presidency. Douglass and Grant were political allies.

  3. Clay,
    I have a similar background as you except you’ve moved on to bigger and better things. Based on what I read, the ‘Skins had a culture of “boorish behavior.” If there’s anything worse, they may have real legal issues. For now, it’s just a PR issue.

    But as a former STH, the Eagles sang it best. “I’m Already Gone.” As long the Snyder can make money from the team through TV revenue and jersey sales, the product on the field is unlikely to improve no matter what name they play under.

  4. 20 years of Snyder vs name change.

    Even if Snyder sold, I can’t root for the team, if the name changes. And I certainly won’t watch if name is new and Snyder is Still there. I’ve never seen anything like this before. The name and it’s history destroyed in a matter of weeks, and not one former redskins player defends the name. Or the fans. Or the history.

    I got outta of DC in the ripe time.
