The birth of a Redskins fan

Dan Snyder’s friend

Despite Junior’s affection for his favorite team, his relationship with the owner makes it hard for him to behave like a normal fan at a team that has one playoff win since 1992. A normal fan would crucify their team with this sort of track record.

“It is tough because I do like Dan Snyder,” Junior said. “He’s been incredibly nice to me and invited me to games and so forth. He’s a nice person, too. I just feel like it’s taken him awhile to understand his role as an owner and how he needs to trust people underneath him to be tasked with a job of putting the team together to win games.
