Here is my Dan Snyder story. In 2005 after a 3 year wait I received notice that I could purchase season tickets. All I had to do was put down a $100.00 deposit so I did. In March of 2006 my son was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma and my families life changed forever. I called the Redskins sales office and I asked if I could get a refund of the $100.00 dollars and I was told it was non refundable, at that point I explained to the gentlemen on the phone why I was asking for the refund and although he was sympathetic he said that Mr. Snyder had made it clear to the sales staff that no deposits were ever to be refunded regardless of the circumstances. It was only a $100.00 but Snyder was not going to let it go no matter what. Please remember that this franchise was suing the suite ticket owners who had defaulted on their 5, 7 or 10 year club level ticket plans. Many of these people had lost jobs during the recession and could no longer afford the annual ticket and parking fee. A survey of other NFL teams disclosed that Snyder was the only team owner who litigated against his fan base.
This man has ruined the team that I have rooted for since i was 8 years old and it does not surprise me that he is a Romney supporter. It is just one more reason not to go to that piece of crap stadium. He demands that you call him Mr. Snyder and if you are an employee at Redskin Park you are never to address him at all. As a prior poster stated he got the Commonwealth of Virginia to give him a 4 million dollar tax break in exchange for moving training camp from Ashburn to Richmond. Just one more example of the 1% taking our money and giving nothing in return.
