Deadspin Takes on Dan Snyder

Deadspin‘s Tommy Craggs weighed in today on the Dan Snyder-WCP lawsuit, just re-filed by the Redskins owner. He specifically responds to Snyder’s editorial on WaPo‘s op-ed page, which Craggs calls “Fred Hiatt‘s bullshit emporium.” Hiatt is WaPo‘s editorial page editor. The editorial, Craggs writes, is “probably the most ridiculous assertion on that op-ed page sincee whatever George Will wrote last week.”

Craggs thinks that Snyder is a “prick” and that his explanation of the lawsuit is mainly bogus, but points out one area where he may have a case. WCP‘s Dave McKenna accused Snyder of forgery, but employees of Snyder’s company were the ones who actually carried out the forgery. But even that argument is probably a stretch.

Check out Craggs’ profanity-laced rant after the jump.

“Dan Snyder has sex with his prize Palomino steed” would constitute a hideous libel. “Dan Snyder forged names,” though? Not really. Not like writing that “Dan Snyder and George Will make snuff porn in Sally Quinn‘s fuck dungeon,” without any evidence that Dan Snyder and George Will make snuff porn in Sally Quinn’s fuck dungeon. You couldn’t write that. You could, I suppose — I mean, you could write that “Dan Snyder and George Will make snuff porn in Sally Quinn’s fuck dungeon” — but if you did write that “Dan Snyder and George Will make snuff porn in Sally Quinn’s fuck dungeon,” and you were subsequently sued for writing that “Dan Snyder and George Will make snuff porn in Sally Quinn’s fuck dungeon,” I seriously doubt Floyd Abrams would return your calls.
