Snyder Sues For Defamation of Character

The judge should rule against Snyder, due to lack of evidence ... of Dan Snyder's character. Ba-zing!

But seriously, folks. A few months back, I had the Cranky Redskins Fans' Guide tabbed for a while but never got around to writing about it over here at IDYFT. Written by Dave McKenna for the City Paper in DC, it is an encyclopedic account of Snyder's misdoings. It has its moments of rueful chuckling.

But it's really worth reading now that Dan Snyder is planning to sue the paper and is seeking dismissal of the writer.

One of our legal experts might weigh in on the burden of proof in defamation cases and the precedence of newspapers being forced to fire writers. My worry is that I'm writing about the DC Skins at all. I don't want to think about them until they're blowing a billion dollars on some gutless free agent.

Also, Clinton Portis is selling his DC-area home. I called it back in November, when he went on IR. Goodbye, Clinton.

I didn't know you could sue yourself.

Dave Zirin takes this on pretty well:
