right move would be minority investor with right of first refusal if Snyder puts the team up.
That’s how Ted got the Caps and Wizards. I doubt Danny wants to ply nice though. Can’t see him selling unless the other owners force him out.

by the other owners, you mean the other NFL owners, not the minority shareholders.  Best shot at him being forced out is if the harassment scandals blow up.

Yes. The other NFL owners.

Yes. The other NFL owners.

That's basically how Jerry Richardson was forced to sell the Carolina Panthers.

Didn't see this coming: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/alex-smith-says-washington-didnt-want-me-after-return-from-injury-hesitated-to-give-him-fair-shake/

"Heck no, they didn't want me there," Smith told GQ. "At that point, as you can imagine, everything I'd been through, I couldn't have cared less about all that. Whether you like it or not, I'm giving this a go at this point."

Washington's opposition to his return began in the summer, when Smith abruptly received clearance to begin football activities, despite sitting out the entire 2019 season while in rehab.

"I mean, they tried to put me on PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) for two weeks, then they tried to high-arm me," he said. "I felt like I still hadn't had my fair shake at that point. I wanted to see if I could play quarterback and play football, and I feel like I hadn't been given that opportunity yet to find that out. It's like getting this close to the end line of a marathon and they're telling you that you can't finish the race. It's like, f--- that. I'm finishing this thing. At least I'm going to see if I can. So, I'm thankful we worked through all that stuff, but no, it wasn't like open arms coming back after two years."

The redskins trying their best to do wrong by a player is about the most predictable story line there is.

And it’s over.  Per Ian Rapoport, WFT expected to release Alex Smith

Per FBN - the Redskins are replacing their cheerleaders with a coed dance team.   :doh:
