A Quick Nod to Reality

The Daily Redskin 1.17.10

A whole lot of people are quick to express low opinions of Redskins team owner Daniel Snyder. Not just on football matters--few are shy about taking the man's character to task as well.

That's the part that I always wonder about.

A precious few have personal experiences or direct knowledge upon which to base those low opinions, and I have no truck with them. We should form our opinions based on personal experience.

But most, the vast majority, have only hearsay as their basis. Only what they hear on sportstalk radio, what they read on message boards, what they hear around the water cooler. For that group (and I count myself among them as I have never met the man), I have a couple of questions.

As he has done many times in the past, Dan Snyder has come up big in response to the tragedy in Haiti. And as is the team's practice, there were no press conferences called, no press releases issued, no attention called beyond the factual piece on their web site linked herein.

Did you notice?

Does it impact your opinion about the man?

Have you donated your time, money or more than a passing thought?*

Dan Snyder has.

* Yes, I have.
