This Washington Vs. That Washington

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee November 25, 2011

Here are two things you need to know about the Washington Redskins (who the Hawks are playing Sunday):

In addition to their super-classy team name, they also have a total d-bag owner.

Last year, Redskin's owner Dan Snyder sued the Washington City Paper after the paper shredded him for gouging fans, ruining players and coaching staff, selling beer in stadium bathrooms, and a long list of other questionable business practices.

Snyder eventually withdrew his lawsuit against the City Paper, and it turns out—as he later told the New York Timeshe hadn't even read the article in the first place:
Earlier this year, you sued The Washington City Paper for publishing "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," which, among other things, claimed that your company had engaged in some shady business practices. Have you read the article?

How could you sue without reading the piece?
Because I heard all the details. But the entire piece? I'm not going to read that.

Oh, and he's friendly with Jack Abramoff, too. Plus, Redskins' coach Mike Shanahan is an awful, fantasy football season ruining lizard-faced monster (never ever draft a running back on that guy's team). And this is why the Redskins must be destroyed.

Good thing the Seahawks actually have a legitimate shot at a win. The Hawks sometimes play well at home, and Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman is one of maybe six NFL starting QBs (along with Colt McCoy, Blaine Gabbert, Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow, and Kevin Kolb) who's actually worse than our very own Tarvaris Jackson.

Go Hawks.
