So our Mr. Snyder caught a little flack in cyberspace this week for his emotional outburst that Fox caught in the Skins' locker room during the Cowboy win post-game victory celebration…

Seems as The Danster was hugging people saying “Physical, that’s what happens when we play physical!” Some players were non-pulsed, some were amused and others were probably just downright embarrassed.

Danny, dude, you’re the owner. Do your hollerin’ and high fivin’ in the box with your homies. When you get to the locker room, congratulate your employees like they are men in a calm and professional manner.

Now having said that, here are a few other Snyder stories that cast the Skins main man in a better light...

According to the Dallas newspaper the stories go like this:

Stephen Jones, the son of Cowboy owner Jerry Jones, and his family spent a pleasant evening at the Aspen home of Dan Snyder a few years ago. Once Jones returned home, he realized he had left his cellphone.

No problem, Snyder said. Jones could have one of the kids come by and pick it up. The moment Jones' nephew returned and put the phone in his hand, it rang.

"It was this God-awful song," Stephen Jones said.

It was "Hail to the Redskins." Snyder's oldest daughter downloaded the ring tone on the Cowboys' executive vice president’s phone.

Nice, Danny, NICE!


"We have a little better friendship than people might think," Jerry Jones said. "We sure don't have it because of him being the owner of the Redskins.

Jones remembers the day Snyder dropped by his office unannounced. He had flown in early for the game and wanted to take Jones to lunch.

Jerry and Stephen got into a car driven by one of Snyder's friends. As the car pulled out of the parking lot, Snyder put in a tape. It was a rap song about beating the Cowboys.

"They spent 30 minutes driving all over Dallas playing that song," Jones said as the car passed one restaurant after another. "I tolerated it."

Snyder laughed. His recollection is different.

"First of all, it was the night before the game, and I think Jerry picked us up at the hotel," Snyder said. "I was with a friend of mine, Tony Roberts. We put the tape in, and Jerry took it out so quick.

"The rest of it is Jones, as you know, exaggerating."

Good stuff.
