Sometimes you want Daniel Snyder to be Daniel Snyder. Like now.
Word arrived late last week that Mr. Snyder and Jerry Jones would fight the NFL's sanction of the Redskins and the Cowboys for maxing out the rules under the 2010 "no cap" year.
The teams will fight the league through arbitration called for under the new CBA rather than the Court system. The judicial process would take longer, involve more hurdles and would be a disaster for the league if the 'Skins and 'Boys won. More on that below.
Arbitration is smarter and faster than lawsuits. Besides, who's impressed by the Redskins legal team? They couldn't talk Snyder out of heartless suits against grandmas in trouble who couldn't play their season ticket bill, or out of making Snyder look petty by suing small city papers over a cartoon.
Yup, I'd have more faith in the Cowboys legal team if it came to lawsuits.
The leagues sanction seems to have outraged everyone but league owners. John...
