Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President
"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

"Is Daniel Snyder and he is going to talk about his own journey of recovery, but he's also going to talk about the opioid crisis and the overdose crisis, and also we're GonNa talk a little bit about a drug policy and particularly looking at like decriminalization and legalizations. I have a lot of questions about that Daniel you introduce yourself morning do I in. Yeah I'm Daniel Snyder storm coming out of just outside Vancouver British Columbia Canada, a project in pure coordinator with our action table here in Langley, that is responding to the ongoing overdose crisis. So in British Columbia redeclared a public health emergency just over four years ago in response to the rising and alarming number of fatal overdoses in the province really dramatic spike in my own journey through opioid addiction I was basically addicted to heroin. For fifteen years and realizing learning about this crisis that was ongoing. I realized I really had an opportunity to play some role in sharing my story in how I was impacted by addiction and and how perhaps our current approaches kearns social attitudes towards drug use is not helping a lot of people. So let's jump in and just talk about that. Well, let's start with your story and then how that manifests itself and then how. You want to change that view. It sounds like, yeah. So I don't fit into a typical narrative and when his narrative I I mainly framing addiction around the way it's presented at large to to us in society. So for a Lotta people who aren't directly impacted, their perception is formed they what they see in the media and. The media has a strong tendency of focusing on the most. Damaging and obvious of cases. So we're talking about. While the downtown Vancouver is the perfect example. It's it's essentially world famous for all the wrong reasons in terms of drug use open drug use homelessness, and in it was inevitable that if you look at a newspaper or watch a leading story on on this overdose crisis, you're gonNA see back alleys and injection drug use in the perception might be that that's precisely what addiction looks like and I I was never homeless. I was never out of work hours maintain to maintain employment, and if you'd walk asked me. During the years I was inactive addiction, you wouldn't have had one of those stereotypical thoughts about me that perhaps many of us are guilty of insensitive. Look there goes drug addict and I spent. Most of my years in working really really hard at trying to hide it, right keep it a secret not allow people to find out what was really going on with me and what was underneath that or what the reasons were for. That are props complex and nuanced and heart of my own story but also part of the larger story of our our society and our attitudes towards people who use substances. Right. I, think a lot of people their addiction is hidden. It's not seeing they need help they need. Support. But because of the stigma around addiction, they can't reach out I mean they don't WanNa reach out or it's it's more difficult to reach out because of the consequences of reaching out hundred percent addiction is one of those things that we reduce people to these one word labels. Constantly, we put Phil Addict Label on people maybe it's friends and family I mean we're not doing this with the intention of hurting them by has a bizarre side effect of reducing them to just a set of behaviors without really considering. What's going on underneath the surface? What's the reason that this person is struggling with addiction? We just want to focus in on the outward behaviors and The world we've been that I grew up in and that's been ongoing since even before I was born is this one in which we have for the most part said drugs are bad and we got an Iraqi drugs we gotta radical them completely free society and the DA in the drug war and we gotta stop people from using them and I think we've clearly missed the point year. It's pretty evident that that drug war has failed and what we really need to be looking to do is mitigate the harms caused by by substances nursery we're not going to get rid of them will always. Be Choosing use substances and so our our efforts should be focused on reducing the harm both to the user and to to the society around them. So tell me a little bit about your story and how you started to get clean or how you started to get help and how how do you WanNa change that and how would that be different? Yes. So in my early years of substance use, I didn't realize. I had a problem I think that's pretty typical for a lot of people you're having fun you're young. It's not really causing a lot of consequences yet perhaps wasn't affecting my relationships or anything, and then you know something happens I had a bit of a encounter with a roommate that turned violent in the police got involved in. That was kind of one of those moments that person has in which they realize. Hey, life's. Not Quite turning out the way anticipated all this drug use has been a lot of fun but it seems to be causing some problems as well and so I was kind of the beginning of a recovery journey that took a really long time and I think that that's a really important thing to recognize is that a recovery or coming to come into the awareness that? Hey, there's there's A. Problem here I WANNA make some changes to it is not something that we can just turn on a dime it's a there's a lot of up and downs I. Look at my life in retrospect or look at that journey kind of like a a really volatile stock ticker. If you're looking at a stock chart for some company that had a lot of ups and downs you'll see that My life would hit really great points. achieve. My goal was was subdued for period of time, maybe six months or a year that that happened multiple times during that journey, and then it would bottom out and I would lack really any insight into why that would happen. stock would drop. So to speak at you, step back from the picture and look at it from a more of a big picture perspective. You can see that there was a process of a trend over that period of time.

"snyder" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Twenty. All Right Tommy let's get to what I think is a potential wild story in the making. Of course, it has nothing to do with what will be going on on the field for the Washington football team rarely do these big stories have anything to do with what's going on on the field with this organization but this is a doozy If you've been following this, I don't know where goes but where it is right now is very interesting and potentially incredible when you consider the ownership group of your Washington football team first of all. Let me give you sort of the chronological events of this. Dan. Snyder last week sued a company called Ami A. W. W that that company is media entertainment arts worldwide, they are an India based company and Snyder and Snyder filed last week in an Indian court a lawsuit against this company for publishing articles linking. Dan Snyder to Jeffrey Epstein this all goes. Back to the week, lead up to the post story about a month ago. Now, that indicated that fifteen women stepped forward and alleged sexual harassment and verbal harassment by the redskins. Organization the week leading up to it as as most recall included all of these wild rumors on the Internet one included a story that this media entertainment arts worldwide printed. Snyder had been linked to Jeffrey Epstein. Now, this this group put out a statement saying that That they acknowledged that in public in some of their public statements that there were factual problems with their stories but they denied that outsiders paid for their placement, I'll get to that part in a moment. Snyder's lawyers said that media entertainment arts worldwide intentionally. So disinformation at the behest of undisclosed clients, including governments and intelligence services, and they're often hired by clients that are cloaked behind several layers of anonymous corporate entities. What Snyder's lawyers allege that they do, and then they alleged that they were involved in in spreading stories in internet information that included Snyder being tied to Jeffrey Epstein. Now, the follow up to that Tommy came yesterday when Dan Snyder accused a former team employees in a federal court. Of taking part in an Internet mass information campaign against him, falsely linking him to convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein and using twitter bots that spreaded that spread unfounded rumors about Snyder abusing drugs, holding sex parties and BRIBING NFL referees. Remember those were some of the stories we heard leading up to post story. Here's the detail of the filing yesterday the filing a request for discovery in the Federal District Court in Alexandria Virginia. Accuses Mary Ellen Blair a former Executive Assistant to Snyder of acting as an intermediary for unnamed adversaries. Snyder thanks paid an India based online news company to publish false stories linking him to Epstein that would be the company that I just spoke of the media Entertainment Arts Worldwide Company This is his lawyer speaking Joe Taco Pena. Quote we know someone's behind these slanders and quite frankly despicable articles that were published. We need to understand WHO's behind this. With certainty we want our proof now mary-ellen Blair the former executive. Assistant to Snyder. Through her attorney the Attorney said that That, her client. Denied that her I'm sorry denied that her client had involvement with the Epstein Stories and accused Snyder seeking to quote, humiliate and intimidate his former employees, the filings and obvious into inappropriate attempt to silence. Miss Blair and others who may wish to communicate with legitimate news organizations about the culture of sexism harassment and abuse that has existed at the highest levels of the Washington football team for decades bullying and baselessly disparaging former employees who provide truthful information about their experience with Dan Snyder and his organization will do nothing to repair the reputation he claims in this filing to care so deeply about. Now. Here's the real intriguing part. Let me before I get to this just make sure everybody's clear Snyder. Sues this media company in India for falsely putting out a story that he had ties with Jeffrey Epstein. Then yesterday in a court filing for discovery he accuses his former Executive Assistant of acting as an intermediary for this India based online news company and providing information to them. Now here, Tommy is really I think the part that is going to be very interesting and makes it a must follow story. Snyder's filing yesterday in court seeks documents from mary-ellen. Blair. His former executive assistant as well as from Com stock holding companies a Virginia Real Estate Company that owns rental properties where Blair mary-ellen Blair's former executive system has lived. The filing alleges that Blair receive discounted rent for years while working for for the same unidentified people who funded would snyder believes was an orchestrated fake news Internet campaign against him. Monday's filing appears to mark an intensification between Snyder and the three minority owners of the football team over the franchise's direction. That would be remember. Fred Smith. Bob Rothman and Dwight Shar own roughly forty percent of the organization. While, his name is not mentioned in the Filing Dwight Shar. One of those minority owners seeking to sell his share of the team is the father-in-law of Comstock Chief Executive Christopher Clement shars daughter Tracy Shar is a senior VP ADT com stock sits on the company's board of directors. Comstock again being the company and the real estate. Company that owns rental properties that gave this mary-ellen Blair who worked for Snyder, who Snyder's accusing of providing this information to this company in India discounted rent for years. Dwight. Shar could not be reached to comment Tracy Shar released a statement denying Snyder's allegations and said Blair paid the market rate for apartments that she's lived in to comstock properties since twenty fifteen quote any insinuation Miss Blair received special treatment for any reason is patently false any allegations or disparagement of comstock just spin designed to deflect from public reports.
"snyder" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"This Friday, and of course, our big story that's been reverberating across the sports landscape has to do with the Washington Post report from yesterday where fifteen women who previously worked for the team have alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse by scouts and members of Daniel Steiner's inner circle. Now Daniel. Snyder was not accused directly of any wrongdoing, nor was Bruce Allen is former GM. Snyder was asked multiple times by the post to comment about the story and every time he refused, he did release a statement. Saying quote, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post article has no place in our franchise society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture in standard for our team, a process that began with the hiring of coach Ron Rivera earlier this year. Of course, this was a story that dominated I. Take this on ESPN Dominic. Foxworth and Damien woody were our host, and both of them gave their reaction to everything that has thus far unfolded in Washington. They do need to get it right, but we have no reason to believe that they will get it right. They have a kind of a long history in that franchise. Some of it is rumor, and some of it or things that actually have been reported and seem to be fact then you can go all the way back to the story as written in two thousand eighteen about the twenty thirteen trip that the cheerleaders took to Costa, Rica where they had the cheerleaders taking part in topless photo shoots, and they allowed people who paid for sweets to walk around and view the cheerleaders during that process. Reported that they stood up to create barricades so that the the suite holders couldn't see their teammates out there without their clothes on, and then at the end of that process, they also allowed the suite holders to select from the group of teachers, the ones that they wanted to escort them to a party and they did all this after taking the passport away from. From their cheerleaders that was in two, thousand, thirteen, reported in twenty, eight hundred, and then you can just go back to last year. Where there was forty employees, they left because they. They cited issues with the culture that they had there. We can go back to the mismanagement of Trent Williams injury. which I know doesn't fit into this theme, but it is also a series. Evidence of mismanagement, and then we have this come out, we come out. We have this come out yesterday, which is also incredibly embarrassing and disappointing, so I agree with Adam that punishment, taking draft picks, or finding them to me feels empty and irrelevant but I the question I have for for him, and for for anybody else. Frankly, is there conversation about Dan Snyder future in who is actually going to fix this because Dan Snyder has demonstrated that he is incapable. Incapable of fixing this problem, he may be part of the problem and Ron Rivera a football coach. Stop it if you think that Ron. Rivera is GonNa fix this? He's a football coach and we shouldn't ask him to fix. This is not a responsibility. He has no ability to do so. We have no reason to believe that he's capable of doing so so I hope Dan Snyder speaks at some point. I'm interested to hear what would have to say about it. Well Listen I. Think first of all from a macro level. This is something that women in generally in sports at the deal with a quite some time, and we're not just talking about the national football league, but sports in general so. I applaud all the women that in forward in the Washington Post article to really tell their story about what's been going on with the Washington franchise acquired some time. We've heard the stories and dominic you. You referenced him talking about the cheerleader, a cheerleader incident you know in in Costa Rica I believe the aboard behavior down there, and then obviously the story that I just dropped yesterday from the Washington Post in a toxic environment with the Washington Redskins, and you know when you think about it anytime, we anytime you talk about a toxic environment, a workplace culture that is just this horrible. Is usually because of toxic management, and and that's really been a theme offer the Washington Franchise for quite some time for years now have they been putting back on the field, but behind behind the scenes of behind the walls of the franchise has been terrible behavioral. That's been going on all levels whether it's management scouting coaching. In all levels in the one thing that you would like to see as you would like to see the face of the franchise, the number one person could no one hundred, and that would be the owner. Dan Snyder step forward by Mark Cuban. Day with the Dallas cowboys when they had a incident. Is You know alleged incidents is brought forward with the with the Dallas Mavericks? Mark Cuban came straight out and said you know what this the buck stops and starts with meet He put forward a plan to try to remedy the situation we to see anything like that from Dan Snyder as far as this topic and many other topics come on come up with the Washington Washington franchise.

"Proud organization you remember when that Washington was was the cat's meow, the NFL and we saw the remember Doug William Super, Bowl, performance and mark rippin right. It was another quarterback for them and Joe thanks. Joe Ties Machine. Mas and Derek leading coach dogs. We all know about Washington and all the great team to. Remember Gel a ten year waiting list, Chris or something like that to get tickets to see Washington, and now you know that Stadium Fedex field a cover up seats. They can't sell out. They haven't made the playoffs. Then things they haven't made a pledge two years in a row in like twenty five years like. Can you believe that some streak like that would they haven't made two plus two years in a row in a quarter-century, which is just crazy, so I can't wipe fans. Don't like Daniel Snyder and his ownership since he took over the T. Now I do, too. But I look and ultimately I. Think from what we read. He was not personally involved in any of this. We talked about Mark Cuban who. Kept bringing back a guy who had been accused of domestic violence. Would you say? For their website, he paid L. something. Yeah, get him out of jail. Yeah, so mark was. A more hands on with the situation in his organization, then Snyder was at least from what we've read and Cuban. You know he was able to keep his team. You're be win on the jump on ESPN and cried and all that stuff. But he was able to keep his team and they've you know. Sue. Presumably changed the culture. They brought in woman as one of their top executives to clean it up, and that's what they're going to have to do in. Washington and big tough, you know I I don't think he will and liberties because of Joey Richardson Chris and Carolina. He was personally involved. Yup these. was he was Percy accused of harassment? Yeah, exactly and that's why he was forced to sell the team. They've taken a statue down at that stadium. All that Chris because he. Was the one that that the people were saying was involved, and did the things that made them uncomfortable or harass them, and that's why he was out like that in the NFL now even though we don't think that Schneider from what we read that his actions will lead him to have to sell the team. It really ultimately is up to the sponsors. And if the sponsors? Saying they will, but if they do want to. Get him out of there. You know if they just think I mean he. He was accused of making a lot of fun of mail. A Guy that was with organization who was a male cheerleader in college, so he he's Snyder at always mess with him and. So you know if sponsors WANNA pull out because of this well. He'll be gone yeah. WHO HAVE TO SELL? Out there saying if they read what we read, Chris, we know about environments, and yes, it's under his watch ultimately responsible, but if his name was mentioned in any of that, there would be no doubt in my mind. I think there's doubt. That, he's out. Now no question I totally agree with you. Rob Read this quote..

We'll see if we can push him, but I think there's gotta be some concern, so he's a great guest to have at the bottom of the hour. So keep it locked for that are, but before we go there. Let's go back to story of the day. And this is the story of the day. It is been height up for more a few days now right route. Few Like. This big stories going to drop the album. Bobby Ready Oh. It's going to change you think changing. The name was a big deal. Big Right right right I mean and we knew how big of a deal changing the name is right, and you're right. That was essentially word for word what some people were saying and. Look is bad. There's no doubt about it. Obviously, our guys already have lost their job. Larry! Michael was the voice of the rats INS for sixteen years. He's gone. He retired. They gave him the dignity of walking out on his own, but we know what this was about. He walked out within the last week when they probably let him know. Hey, story is coming out. So it's big, but I thought it was. Rob Based on what I was reading. I thought it was going to be bigger. I thought it was going to be so big. The danced and I don't want to be little. I'm not belittling were happened because it's horrible. What happened to those women but I thought it was going to be something that was going to force. Dan Snyder the owner out like I. Thought he might be evolved actually I when I was reading this stuff I really thought he was going to be. Accused of some of this stuff, that's really what I thought and and I agree with you from this standpoint. We. Could we're not be literally. What happened not at all, but we could have read that thing today. Chris and right away multiple would have said. And we wouldn't bit I'll tongs. We would have said Dan Schneider done in Washington. He's he's out right. We would read. That's what we would've said or if he would have been involved no question, no question I know that today. Now I look I'm with him we. We asked them callers and we'll have calls again in about fifteen minutes. You guys. Down some Washington fans because they don't want him, clearly I get it. He's been let's just. Let's just look at it from a football. He's been terrible. Yeah, he's been terribly not get into his personality and other personal stuff from Footba standpoint. He's been terrible friend even though he wasn't involved in this, but he may have known I'm sure he knew something about what what kind of culture was underneath him. No doubt but this is under his watch I don't think he should lose his team because of it, but this is terrible to so from a football point. They've been terrible from a culture standpoint. There have been terrible. He hasn't gotten himself endeared himself to the fans, and so they want him out. That's one thing you are what we have two or three cars from. In DC, they clearly wanted him gone which. And, Chris we talked about it before earlier..

"That neighborhood around RFK and again like I said before what no matter! Where Stadium Is D. C. Virginia Maryland no one is paying Dan. Snyder to build a stadium. He would have to pay for it out of his own pocket. The best he can hope for is the government pays for the infrastructure or say to step under the stadium. You know the roads. The ramps things like that. Any stadium deal that's discussed as far as government entities concerned. That's as far as they go. CIDER would have to pay for it. I was on pocket, no matter what.

"What happens sometimes well. What do you mean they see their? They see their worse than friends. They say Oh, you know. Maybe that wasn't a good idea. Maybe I Saddam. Well? You know that's fine. That's fine and but. The point is is that you know it wasn't from a lack of of effort as it's never been in the past, but if you missed the story Ron Rivera told the Post. He's been working with Dan Snyder in recent weeks to come up with a new name for the organization, and he hopes that it can happen within the next two months. Here's some of the quotes. If we get it done in time for the season, it would be awesome. he said that he and Snyder have been talking about a name change for more than a month roughly around the time, tribal leaders, politicians and others started their latest push for Snyder to to reverse his longstanding policy and eliminate a name that is a dictionary defined racial slur. He added Snyder's started speaking in earnest with NFL officials about the move two and a half weeks ago and suggested the owner is ready to make the move. He said quote. We came up with a couple of names two of them I, really like closed quote. Although he declined to reveal what those two names were Rivera said that he believes the most important criteria for new name is at its respectful of native, American, culture and traditions, and is also a tribute to the military and he said quote. We want to do this in a positive way We WanNa make sure that the name won't be a joke closed quote. So. There you go That was that was from Ron Rivera on the fourth of July. He was also asked Tommy about the comments which came. Roughly a week ago on that radio station in Chicago six, seventy, the score where he said now is not the time on the name. And he said he didn't address it directly on that radio program in another city, because quote that's meant for the DC area. That is our conversation closed quote. Well, that's very whether he's telling the truth or not. That's a very good answer. I think that is a good answer. You're right. I didn't actually think about whether or not. That's a good answer I. Very Savvy Answer It's it shows an understanding of media. and that's very savvy of him, and that's very good. If you're a redskins fan, because apparently right now. This is the only guy calling the shots in the organization. This is it. One of the things we've learned from Reno's post stories is that that's neither have? A lot of sounding board. for opinion, and that's because he drove away most of sounding boards. The only sounding board he really wants is the one who said Yes dan. You're absolutely right, and that's a nice yacht. You got to but right now. It's the guy who was hired in December. is in charge. Up, pretty much every. And Yeah some of the things that came out of that story about the current state of the organization. Basically you know indicates more than not that it is a bit of a mess right now that there is a need for another team president type of person in the Organization of course after Lav Amina. WHO's GonNa? Take the job. Bruce had it for obvious reasons, but some of the quotes that came out of that post story quote, according to to people who work directly with Snyder redskins issues issues, his decision. Making style is driven more by personal whim than by expert. Council he goes through his ROLODEX and calls random people until he gets an opinion, he likes he follows. Set another person with five years of direct experience. He seeks advice, but he only here's what he wants to hear. His favorite phrase is you. Don't know what you're talking about closed quote. And this is why you know. He's attracted the people that he's attracted over the years it's it's remarkable and again I mentioned this many times. The outkick the coverage in hiring Ron. Ron Rivera Ron Rivera. I don't know if I mentioned this on the podcast. Somebody told me Rivera wanted back into the NFL so badly because he felt like he was so wronged and Carolina and this was the first in the immediate opportunity that ensured that he was going to be coaching right away. I don't know if the cowboys are. The giants would have ultimately hired him. Obviously Carolina wasn't but Yeah I mean. Well, you know out good friend and legal adviser. Neilan Rockville came up with a great idea for Snyder for team. President! Mike, Rizzo We! WHO's only got four months left.

"Dan Snyder. And how it's warranted. He said he's also deserving of praise. That might come his way during the teams rebuild and culture shift. That praise is coming. Yeah I mean I I wouldn't write that And I like some of these fan websites you know. I do because I think they are. Actually you know they're that they're plugged into the team but nothing gets by them in terms of what's going on and they're passionate and all this fan site some of them are good. Some of them aren't I I don't. I'm not familiar with this person. I just pulled up the story that you're referring to I don't know this person. Zachary Neil There's no real iheart at the FOTI person. I've no idea I can tell you this. There's no way in. Hell that you'd get me on radio to say that. Dan Snyder deserves some credit for the recent culture shift in Washington because first of all I don't know that there's been a culture shift. I'm I'm hopeful. I'm hopeful that there might be a culture shift. He talked about culture on the happy. You know the day of the happy Thanksgiving introductory press conference for Ron Rivera. I think he recognizes that the culture under Bruce Allen wasn't very good but the problem I've always had and the reason I'm not jumping head. I like some of you have which by the way some of you always do. And I I'll I'll be the first to admit that when they hired when they hired Mike Shanahan and even Bruce Allen in two thousand ten Tommy and I were doing the show together i. We're all lynn and I I was. I was lecturing people. If you recall in that first season that they wanted to see change so quickly and I said look if you can't handle it go antiquing with your white wife. Stop Watching football and we'll let you know when it's safe to come back in but but the real men are going to hang in there and watch this thing change and we. I was wrong. You know dead wrong I like Rivera. I think Ron Rivera is a really good higher for them. And I think he's a you know a leader in a respected guy but so is Mike and so is joe in so you know so is Marty and you know I i. I don't know that there's been a culture shift. I'm hopeful that there will be. But here's the problem. I've always had when I WANNA get more optimistic than I am. And that is the belief that I have that there is a a true personality flaw for the organization and for the owner and it is the. It's the combination of incredible arrogance and not having any idea what he's doing and because of that. I don't think he'll ever ever admit that it's been him that it's his fault. I think every step along the way you know it was spurrier's fault. It was Vinnie's fault because he hired zone it was it was high on Mike's Fault. They were terrible people. It was now finally To the realization. Oh my God. Bruce has been effing me here for the last several years. He's really screwed me. You know he brought this terrible coach back kept in a kept him for five and a half years it was bruce's fall and I just think that's a personality flaw and I also think you get to a certain age and when you're not self aware you're not all of the sudden gonNA become self aware and they if you haven't developed some level self-awareness especially when you have the money where you don't need that's right part of it. That's part of it now. You know somebody with that kind of ego has definitely been embarrassed here. You know he'd he doesn't think it's his fault. And that Hashtag Bruce Allin probably emboldened him in the feeling that it wasn't in that people weren't you know sort of you know they. They weren't they weren't going after him for the failure but he has to been embarrassed to look out into his seventy five thousand seat stadium and on occasion. See No more than fifteen or sixteen thousand people in the stands more than half of whom were rooting for the opponent. That had to really be a major major wakeup call. That's a little bit different from what we saw. In previous rock bottoms. You know not to mention and we've mentioned this before just the sinking television ratings but again the thing that always worries me is I think and believe that. He doesn't believe he's responsible for any of it. And I in that means that you know he'll be. He won't resist jumping back in if he feels like it isn't going well. I think one of the things you've said and I've sort of heard a little bit. Is that while? This isn't an ultimatum from him but that there is some sense that Rivera needs to prove pretty quickly that he's competent in that it's heading in the right direction. You know if they were to have a foreign twelve season this year. And he you know the fucks around with the quarterback situation and puts Kyle Alan in there and he stinks too. You know. Dwayne isn't any good. You know that could be problematic for him. The way the way to hold off Dan Snyder is to be very successful early. And then become very popular. I mean and and and Ron Rivera popularity. His straight you know if he if he turns this around quick he'll become like an a redskins icon just like that fans will love him and it will give him the power that he needs to fight. Dan Snyder if and when they have to over internal politics this is this article also pointed out what I call the mob boss car wash. It talked about how Snyder deserves credit for his public actions in response to the virus. How he move quickly to suspend travel for scouts how we opened up Fedex field to The Maryland government so they could use it for a testing site and also.

"Say if things look back from the outside. They're usually much much support behind. The scene was say for Urban Meyer. Basically who I I'm thinking is on the Redskins Payroll. I'm thinking he's not doing all this stuff for the redskins for free you know. So for Urban Meyer so to rip them and to basically exposed them not that they needed exposing but when you have an insider with with a level of credibility that urban Meyer had validating it. I think it really hits home and I even though it's tell us something we don't know it's when you have somebody with his credentials. Say it. I think it's another thing. Yeah I mean given the fact that there seems to be some sort of relationship between him and the team now. Scotland when Zaven Scott had urban Meyer on on their show last week. Scott ask them like you consultant. Are you getting and he said no? He said. But I've got players here and I and I. I've gotten to know Dan. Whatever so a lot of people's follow up on on what? I said yesterday was he's really referring to Bruce Allen and what the culture was which to which. I responded with okay. That's that's fine but that doesn't mean that it's not going to continue to be a hot mess. You know again if you force me to wager Ron. Rivera is going to have great success and turn the redskins around. Or you have to wager on the opposite. That Ron Rivera is gonNA fall by the wayside just like every other great coach came here. Mardi GIBBS SHANAHAN DID. I would wager on that. That it doesn't work out now doesn't mean that. I can't be optimistic for a half second like I was when when Shanahan got here like I was when Gibbs was here you know and and hoping that Snyder changes his ways But you know there's been a theme here people. The theme is the been terrible out. I mean this head years before Bruce. Out For God's sake the the theme is it hasn't worked for anybody under this owner period now. You can't debate that when people say well. Things are different now. I would say well. He's been on the job for four months. They're not playing football. I would hope things are different now.
