Saying things are about to get ugly for the Washington Football Team (and I think that should just be their name at this point) is like things are getting racist in the Trump administration. That ship not only sailed, it's gone over the horizon. Which, seeing as how the Earth is flat, can only mean it's fallen off the world entirely.

On Sunday, the Post reported that the team had fired director of pro personnel Alex Santos and assistant director of pro personnel Richard Mann II

Not Dick Mann too!

Apparently "vague booking" can be an article now.

Indeed it's been ugly since roughly 2000 when a tiny megalomaniac bought the team.

But who would be Dick Mann's trusty sidekick?

ClitGirl?
The Incredible Vulva?
Li'l Balls?
The Greek transitional God/Goddess, Hermaphrodite?

They're going to start playing games?

An article whose only point is to say "We're going to publish an article soon".  The headline should have been "Placeholder".

I'm really worried about this.  They might announce that Snyder is selling the team and that would be a complete disaster in every way.

Selling the team?
London could have a respectable record if no one is allowed to travel there.

This has nothing to do with the name.  This is likely about the whole "pimping out the Cheerleaders to the box holders" thing...unless it's about the whole "nearly killing Trent Williams by hiding his cancer diagnosis so he'd keep playing" thing

and none of this is an accident.  It's all TRUE mind you, but it's all coming to a head NOW because the other owners want Danny OUT, and there are only a few ways to force an owner to sell.   If my suspicions are correct, they may be making a play to have Jeff Bezos join the ownership club

Dude you've just found the new name! Washington Tiny Megalomaniacs. They'll finally be America's team.

They change the name to Greenskins.  Martians come to Earth to protest, blow us into oblivion.

Uglier than the Albert Haynesworth contract?

I should have gone into journalism. They wrote an entire article consisting of quotes saying something bad was gonna be said about Washington, but nobody knows what.

Considering that's already out in the ether and Snyder abruptly announced the name change (after sponsors leaned on him, granted), I'm going to go with "makes Donald Sterling look like a SJW" as the culprit here.  I'm guessing someone got their hands on audio or a transcript involving Snyder and/or his hand-picked lackeys dropping n-bombs.

For now, we'll continue to watch and wait for whatever it is that members of the media who are covering or who have covered the team are tweeting about.

Somewhere, Mike Tomczak is popping champagne that his status as having the best professional football career for any ex-Ohio State QB has been cemented for a few more years at least.

Arguably, it is Tom Tupa though that was as a punter.

Mike Tomczak is the tOSU qb you has had the best NFL career. That can't be man. That can't be.
