Most of the video staff quoted or sourced in the article has left voluntarily, in fact I overlapped with some of the events and people there in the story. I experienced many things in the same vein as this in my short time there.

I distinctly remember the calendar shoot was a big thing and women on our staff were absolutely not permitted to walk around the gym/locker room/football ops offices unless it was during normal media availability.

How exactly did they justify this policy?

"Females are distracting."

Female reporters still get harassed by players all the time in the locker room (and outside of it). A team like the 'Skins that is run by a bunch of good ole boys thinks the players will be "distracted" (?!) by a female camera operator getting b-roll or something. Really dumb. That place is as toxic as any.

That sound you just heard was Mike Milbury driving to Redskins Park at high speed to apply for a job.

I would find it more enjoyable to experience explosive diarrhea rather than watch that show.

What he accomplished is pretty impressive- if someone told you when he bought the team that in 20 years, the NFL would be the most popular sport in the country, but the redskins fan base would shrink year over year to the point that it’s reached- would you have believed them?

See. It was the racist team name all along.

Huh.  That was a bruising defensive performance. Wentz has got to be feeling that.

I like the numbers on the helmets.  It they make a black polo with that block letter WASHINGTON, I might be in for one.

I still expect a losing record, but what a win to start the season.

Secondary is weak, but the front 7 is sick. If the offense finds any consistency they may win some games.

You may want to control any excitement about the defense.  They played against an offensive line with two rookie starters and a 38 year old at left tackle.  I’m all in on the Eagles tanking and drafting Lawrence.

just wait 'til Rivera gets his DOUBLE R-DOUBLE P offense fully implemented (run, run, pass, punt)

Second smart thing in a row that Snyder has done (following Rivera). No rush.

Defense is good enough to win some games, but Haskins will lose us an equal amount of games

Eagles offensive line is putrid. Aaron Donald is going to run wild next week. He may have 8 sacks by himself.
