Daniel Snyder: Terrible Owner, Terrible Human Being

Washington Post has an article above discussing Daniel Snyder's recent lawsuit against the tiny Washington City Paper. The lawsuit is over a humorously written indictment of Snyder's reign of terror as Redskins owner, characterized by greed, arrogance, incompetence and failure in equal measure. This is the piece:

It isn't vaguely libelous. The Washington Post cites a letter from Snyder's attorneys to the City Paper which plainly lays out Snyder's agenda on the table:

"Mr. Snyder has more than sufficient means to protect his reputation," said the Nov. 24 letter, which was written by David Donovan, the Redskins' chief operating officer and general counsel, and posted on City Paper's Web site Wednesday afternoon. "We presume that defending such litigation would not be a rational strategy for an investment fund such as yours. Indeed, the cost of litigation would presumably quickly outstrip the asset value of the Washington City Paper."

In other words: "We know we have no case, but we have much more money than you and we're filing this suit in an attempt to bully you to fire a writer who doesn't deserve to be fired and to take down a truthful piece because the truth is exceedingly unkind to Daniel Snyder."

Despicable. Danny Boy ought to spend more time addressing the reasons he has ruined a once proud franchise and demoralized its fanbase rather than filing nuisance suits against those who rightfully call him out as the dirtbag fool that he is.
