You Have To Hear What Washington's Ex-Cheerleader Director Says Dan Snyder Told Him
© Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
On Friday, The Washington Post released an in-depth story about how toxic the work environment was for team cheerleaders and what owner Dan Snyder told his former Cheerleader Director to hire...

In August, The Post reported that the team had produced lewd videos out of outtakes from the cheerleaders’ 2008 and 2010 swimsuit calendar shoots that include partial nudity. ...

Then-senior vice president Larry Michael told broadcasting staffers to produce the videos, according to two ex-employees, one of whom said the footage was to be assembled for team owner Daniel Snyder. Snyder and Michael have denied any knowledge of the videos, copies of which were obtained by The Post.

The videos include clips during which some of the cheerleaders’ nipples are exposed as they shift positions or adjust props shielding their breasts. Two of the women’s pubic areas are obscured only partly by body paint. The videos are set to the same three classic rock hits, including one each by The Rolling Stones and U2, two bands Snyder said were his favorites in a 2011 interview. ...

Like the cheerleaders he led, Donald Wells, who served as director from 1997 to 2009, is taking a hard look back at his experience with the team. He regrets that he could not have done more to protect the women. He also recalled a remark by Snyder that Wells said reveals his disrespect for the cheerleaders, their hard work and the value they brought to the team.

“You better keep them skinny with big tits or I’ll f------ kill you,” Wells said Snyder told him at a 2004 charity event where the squad performed.

Snyder, who has been the team’s majority owner since 1999, declined an interview request for this story and did not respond to questions sent to his attorney and public relations firm about the comment Wells said he made.

"“You better keep them skinny with big tits or I’ll f------ kill you,” Wells said Snyder told him at a 2004 charity event where the squad performed." To be fair, "fat and flat" probably isn't the way to go with a cheerleader squad.

If he really said this, I find it both appalling, and hilarious.

"OMG you HAVE to hear what..." Aside from the incessant typos, your histrionic "reporting" style is fricking embarrassing.

Dan Snyder frequents the OT? Comments like that would suggest so.
