Redskins owner sues Washington City Paper

“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.

  • […] The Redskins owner’s libel suit continues to draw a hail of dead cats from, well, just about everyone (earlier). […]

  • 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.
