We thank the D.C. Sports Bog for sifting through the Post archives in search of some of Dexter’s greatest quotes. Example:
On his owner, summer, 1986: Last week, Redskins defensive lineman Dexter Manley, a contract holdout, came on WAVA and called Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke a “miser,” among other things. Manley said: “I know that Jack Kent Cooke doesn’t want to give up the ducats, but all I’m asking for is what I think is fair.”
I didn’t know ducats is a dictionary.com-recognized word, yet here was 72, illiterate though he was, sprinkling it into soundbites back in ’86. Brilliant stuff. Click through for more, and I like this approach by Steinz. It’s like the Nuggets compilation of D.C. sports reporting.
