Redskins owner sues Washington City Paper

by Walter Olson on February 7, 2011

“Indeed, the cost of litigation would presumably quickly outstrip the asset value of the Washington City Paper,” wrote one Redskins official in a lawsuit-threatening letter to an investor in the alternative weekly. Not that owner Dan Snyder is a bully trying to silence his critics or anything! [letter from City Paper editor Amy Austin; Romenesko, TBD]

Reading the original article on Snyder and what he’s done over the years….All I can say what a piece of work. Suing the paper is on par with all the other BS Snyder has done over the years…

The owner of the Washington Redskins suing over alleged racial slurs. You couldn’t make this stuff up.

This is the best thing that ever happened to the Washington City Paper. No one was paying attention to this article. I wonder how much of this is Dan Snyder and how much of this is him acting on advice from others. I really don’t know. But the City Paper is starting a defense fund that I suspect draw in a few season ticket holders.

Fans not liking their team owner is not new but usually it is the team owner that will not open his/her pocketbook. That is certainly not the problem with Dan Snyder.

One of the classics of cartoon disdain – drawing the fake glasses, mustache and beard on posters and paintings (let’s not forget the black-eye variation). Little did I know that this was anti-Semitism.
