The Washington Redskins, with a 6-10
record this season, may not be anywhere near the Super Bowl, but they're still getting media attention this week thanks to unpopular
owner Dan Snyder
. In November, the Washington City Paper published an A-to-Z guide
of Snyder's perceived sins, including bankrupting little old ladies
, running scammy fan events
, cashing in on 9/11, and selling expired peanuts
. The piece was accompanied by a photo of Snyder with scribbled-on devil horns and goatee -- a depiction Snyder decried as anti-Semitic
. Snyder also denies several of the claims made in the A-to-Z piece and threatens legal action in letters to Washington City Paper (republished here
, along with WCP's shrugging response). Above the Law
expresses doubts about Snyder's claims and notes that it's the first time the owner of the unfortunately-named Redksins has ever seemed to care about ethnic slurs. Meanwhile on Twitter, #snyderlibel
commences some serious Snyder-mocking.
