It was bound to happen. But, before I explain that last sentence, let me introduce you to this new group of mine. Starting with the title...
Ashburn, VA is the home to Redskins Park. With everything that's happened in the last 10 years (or so) since Dan Snyder staged his coup d'etat and seized control of the Redskins franchise, I'm sure there are Skins fans who are tired of the propaganda spewed forth by the Snyder media machine.
That's where this group comes in.
After reading the latest installment on the "Hail to the Redskins" blog about Jim Zorn, I was severely disappionted in its tone. To me, it smelled of having been run through the Snyder propaganda machine, before it was posted. It's a goddamned PRESS RELEASE, for Christ's sake!!! If I wanted that, I'd log on to the Redskins website.
Don't get me wrong, it's nice we have a Redskins group here on FanNation. I just wish that sometimes, we could have the TRUTH spoken. Like the Jim Zorn hiring, for example. It's not about his qualifications to be a head coach; what we Skins fans have a problem with, is Dan Snyder shafting the fans yet again by not listening to us.
Anyway, I digress...
So, in the interest of giving FanNation what they truly want--an unfiltered format to speak their minds--I have created this group. (I really wanted to do this BEFORE training camp opens in August, but...this is as good a time as any.) For now, mine will be the only voice writing on here. Others will get the opportunity...provided, they adhere to one basic tenet:
NO propaganda allowed.
Nothing that sounds like a press release will ever grace this group. NOTHING!!
I'm tired of propaganda (and I'm pretty sure the rest of you in FanNation are as well), so this place becomes a forum for those who wish to give the rest of us the pure, unfiltered truth about sports. But trust me, this place will evolve over time.
Well, I've said my piece. Now, it's your turn. Join, and you just might be able to write on here. I'll guarantee you all that.
