For those who are too young to remember, Dan Snyder of the Washington Commanders (Previously the Washington R**skins) made his money through the Snyder Marketing Company. But, in details, what led to Synder’s wealth to afford him to buy the R**skins for $800m? That’s the story for the ages. Dave McKenna of the Washington Citi Paper broke the story years ago, and Snyder has spared no money to kill it ever since. To include filing frivolous lawsuits to silence his critics. You probably won’t find a trace of how Snyder made his fortune on the Internet today other than those McKenna wrote. Suffice to say that the NFL let the Immoral Dan Snyder into its den and now it is coming back to bite every honest owner in this exclusive club. Owners who are self-made. Unlike Dan Snyder.
Well, it’s time to tell you the story my fellow good fans. I am one of you, and I am just as sick to see this immoral man still at the helm of our favorite NFL team.
But besides blaming Dan Snyder, one has to blame the NFL itself. The owners knew how he made his money, and still they let him taint their image and that of the NFL by voting him an exclusive owner in their exclusive club.
Shame on every owner who allowed Dan Snyder to become one of them. Maybe 75% of them can finally muster the guts to force him to sell the team. Maybe all of them just realized that Dan Snyder pulled some wool over their eyes by also stealing their money too.
After making millions fraudulently forging signatures to switch MCI customers to AT&T, Dan Snyder did the unthinkable.
HOW DAN SNYDER MADE HIS MONEY
As McKenna tells it, during the height of competition between AT&T and MCI for international long distance supremacy, Dan Snyder approached AT&T. Using his supposed marketing skills, he promised he would convince MCI customers, who used their international long distance often, to convert them to AT&T customers.
With no distinct differences between the two telecommunications giants in terms of price or customer service, Snyder discovered it was not that easy to convince a customer to switch without an incentive. Not to be swayed by this small hiccup, Snyder began forging signatures of customers on agreements to make them switch. Without their knowledge, of course.
One day, you are a happy MCI customer, but the next you become an AT&T customer not knowing how the hell it happened.
Wait. That’s not all.
After making millions fraudulently forging signatures to switch MCI customers to AT&T, Dan Snyder did the unthinkable. He called on MCI and told them he could, for tens of millions more, return their lost customers back. Under a moonless night, Dan Snyder began forging signatures of AT&T customers, his old contractor, to send millions of their old customers back to MCI where he started forging their signatures in the first place.
Get it? He forged on the way in and forged on the way out. That’s Dan Snyder. This is how he made his money, and the NFL knew his history, yet they let that thief into their den and now he has stolen from them.
The U.S. Government never indicted Snyder for his crimes.
But for the fans in Washington, Dan Snyder’s history of ownership is a stain on the history of the NFL
A TERRIBLE BUSINESSMAN WHO CANNOT BUT CHEAT AND STEAL
Not only Dan Snyder is a terrible businessman who cannot make an honest dollar honestly (He lost over $100m of Bill Gates money), but the man cannot but cheat, steal, and sexually assault female employees of the organization the NFL should have never let it near him.
It used to be, in the eighties, that you had to wait 40 years to get R**skins season tickets. Now, Dan Snyder begs you to buy a seat in his empty stadium. To the NFC East teams, like the Cowboys, the Eagles, and the Giants, Snyder’s incompetence plays well for them. Let the Washington Commanders lose till eternity.
But for the fans in Washington, Dan Snyder’s history of ownership is a stain on the history of the whole NFL, and a worse story would be written if the NFL simply ignored Dan Snyder instead of forcing this immoral man out of its club of honest owners.
Snyder is the grossest act in Washington D.C. This says a lot about a city that experienced an insurrection recently.
