Snyder on worst money spent: 'You all know'

Posted by Will Brinson

Over the past six months (or so), we've written 277 post (or so) about the Washington Redskins. They're full of the crazy and it results in a lot of blogging. 

A lot of that crazy might come from owner Dan Snyder, who was part of a candid D.C. Sports Leaders Summit (or, to be more precise: An Event in Which Washington Sports Owners Answered Questions for Reporters) on Tuesday morning, where he spoke kind of candidly about the worst money he's ever spent.

"I don't have to answer this, you all know," Snyder said, per Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.

Okay, so that's not so much candid as it is vague, but it's pretty obvious that what Snyder is telling the fans and reporters is "I wasted a TON of money on Albert Haynesworth and I'd really appreciate it if you didn't bring it up again."

Either that or he knows that the Redskins are picking up Donovan McNabb's option in 2011 and is just refusing to tell anyone.

Also interesting was that Snyder said that the Redskins would not participate in HBO's "Hard Knocks" because it would be too much of a distraction.

"My impression is when you see that Hard Knocks," Snyder said, via Steinberg. "It's almost like you're creating a situation where the coaches, knowing there's a camera in that room, are acting. And as an owner, as a fan, you really want them to work, go get that work done and coach up the team and win. And I think it's a distraction."

Which is probably accurate, just not any different from normal Redskins training camp, except for the cameras taking everything public instead of reporters.
