What advice would one terrible owner have to another? Because you read this blog, you know the two men, despite the adversarial relationship between the fan bases, are friendly with each other. So what would Daniel Snyder offer Jerry Jones? Let Jones explain it:
“Well, he called me one time [when] we were having a tough time of it,” Jones recalled. “And he said ‘Now don’t take this wrong. You know how much I respect you.’ But he said ‘I’ve got some advice for you.’
“And I kind of rolled my eyes on the other end of the phone, thought well here goes. And he said ‘Drink a lot.’ ”
Actually, we have it on good authority Jerry Jones prefers Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Anyway, Snyder ought to know a lot about losing. His team certainly has done enough of it. According to Deadspin — which has made multiple posts slamming Snyder — he has certain rituals:
Watching games from his private box, Snyder would cuss and second-guess plays, unblinkingly huffing past people. “You want to stay out of his way,” says Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, a frequent guest. After losses, Snyder would stay until 4 a.m., pounding drinks, downing burgers and pizza and blaming himself for being, in the words of a friend, “his own worst enemy.”
Ha, ha. Snyder his own worst enemy? Join the club. Talk about the franchise name. Snyder certainly has done more damage to the team than simply keeping the name.
