It’s generally understood among sports fans that Washington’s NFL team owner Dan Snyder is the worst.
Take away the whole fact that his football team’s name is widely regarded as a racial epithet. This is the guy who sued his own season ticket holders who weren’t able to re-up during the recession while tens of thousands remained on the waiting list.
Snyder is also the guy who brought a libel suit against Washington City Paper writer Dave McKenna for writing a critical piece about his team. The radio stations he owns are nicknamed “Dan Jazeera” because of his well-documented micromanaging.
But back to the team name.
In the latest chapter of the epic tale “Dan Snyder is the Worst,” a judge ruled that his team is allowed to sue the Native American group that complained to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office about the team’s name.
