It's a commonly held notion that Daniel Snyder is one of the worst, if not the worst, owner in all of sports.
Since taking over the franchise in 1999, the Washington Redskins owner has been accused of meddling, emotional inconsistency, ineptness, and ruling with a general culture of fear. But a recent revelation by Rick Maese in the Washington Post may be the worst of them all.
According to Maese's detailed report, many ex-employees claim that they once received bags of apples for their holiday bonuses.
While the Redskins have never been shy to pay millions to football players, former employees who’ve also worked elsewhere in the NFL say salaries for the rest of the operation lag behind many teams. Ex-staffers reported cutbacks during the recent recession — multiple employees reported receiving bags of apples one year in lieu of holiday bonuses — but Tony Wyllie, the Redskins’ senior vice president of communications, noted that a lot of companies tightened their belts during the recession.
What. A. Joke.
Even Clark Griswold thinks that holiday bonus is cold. And he knows a thing or two about about bad holiday bonuses. Jelly of the month club membership, anyone?
