It’s not me saying it, and it’s not someone on Danny’s payroll saying it. It’s Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver in his annual NFL owner rankings:
“8. Dan Snyder: Despite his dubious image as a meddlesome hothead, Snyder is a great owner in many ways: He’s an exceptional businessman who has creatively and aggressively maximized revenues. According to the recently released Forbes rankings, the Redskins generate the most revenue at $345 million – $43 million more than the runner-up.
When he’s not figuring out new ways to rake in dough, Snyder spends the bulk of his remaining energy trying to figure out how to build a winner. For those important reasons I am always predisposed to defend him, and I remain convinced that he’ll hoist a Lombardi Trophy before too long.”
God I hope so.
Click through for more of Silver’s thoughts on Snyder, thoughts I’d normally refute, but not now, not in the midst of WaPo’s investigation into Redskins ticket sales. I feel bad for the little guy. Let him have this at least.
