John Oliver rips 'Skins, Dan Snyder over trademark defense

What we REALLY think about Daniel Snyder

Hog Heaven is a long-time Daniel Snyder critic. You know this if you are a regular reader. (Thank you for that.) Our comments are not Snyder hate. We like that he grew up a Redskins fan. We do not have an out of town owner who is a threat to move the team, or who will bend with every PC breeze. Snyder and his partners bought an NFL franchise for $800 million that today is worth ...
