Dave McKenna Leaves Washington City Paper, But Not Without Kicking Dan…

Snyder, the Redskins' owner, had filed a dumbass libel lawsuit against McKenna earlier this year over a column Snyder acknowledged he hadn't even read.

How Dan Snyder Is The Elvis Of NFL Owners

Yes, you may have read recently that Washington Redskins owner dismissed his dumbass libel lawsuit against the Washington City Paper after admitting that he had never read the story in question. Craggs suggested this was because Dan Snyder was a "churlish little shitbag vulgarian." But perhaps he is just like Elvis in… » 9/21/11 3:00pm 9/21/11 3:00pm

As you may have heard, Dan Snyder's dumbass libel suit against the Washington City Paper is no more. Which means we will no longer be posting a daily link to the story that so enraged Snyder (and which he failed to read). But we still have to wrap up The Snydering, our satirical, non-libelous Dan Snyder group fiction.… » 9/12/11 4:15pm 9/12/11 4:15pm

First, Dan Snyder sold Redskins fans the old peanuts he got from a bankrupt airline, as Dave McKenna mentions in "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder." (You have just experienced "We Are All Dave McKenna CCX.") Now Snyder is charging fans at FedExField $6 for Donovan McNabb soda cups. Oh, wait. I'm not… » 9/02/11 12:25pm 9/02/11 12:25pm

It was always going to come to this. After being abused by Dan Snyder for over a decade, DC is finally fighting back.

Dan Snyder Is Now Campaigning Against The Rights Of D.C. Residents To…

Dan Snyder's lawyers yesterday filed a brief in D.C. Superior Court as part of Snyder's dumbass legal jihad against the Washington City Paper. Snyder's lawsuit looks for all the world like a "strategic lawsuit against public participation." Even the ACLU thinks so. Such "SLAPP" suits are deployed by rich bullies to… » 8/02/11 4:25pm 8/02/11 4:25pm

Failed journalist and wretched lawyer Dave Donovan announced today that he's leaving his job as Chief Operating Officer of the Redskins to return to the law firm whence he came (and where, ostensibly, lawyers can actually convince clients not to file dumbass lawsuits).
