Seriously, this whole story has been a joke and yes, I have to blame Dan Snyder for it. I know the story about the hoax when a fake caller posed as ESPN's President John Skipper and threatened a lawsuit if 980 pulled Mike and Mike for The Man Cave and how this led to the suspension/cancellation of the show. According to the Deadspin article (via the original WaPo article) it was Bruce Allen that discovered the hoax after placing a call to the real Skipper and finding out he never called and never threatened a law suit.
Still.....does this not feel like the drama that has typically come from the Redskins? Over the past 15+ years Snyder has been the principle owner of the Redskins, we've seen a lot of stories like this that involves off the field issues with the media and the Redskins. With Scot McCloughan running the show with football operations, maybe the silly dramas tied to the team will finally end.
I probably won't even listen to The Man Cave on a regular basis. I usually don't listen to sports talk in the morning (for a variety of reasons including either being asleep or working) and if I do it's usually Steve Czaban on Yahoo! sports.
It still feel like a dick move on how 980 pulled the show at the last moment whether the Redskins brass were involved or not. If anything, Bruce Allen and Redskins officials know about being given bad news at the last moment and I would think would want to not be a part of doing something similar.
It was just a few years ago that Roger Goodell (led by Giants owner John Mara and Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie) hit the 'Skins with a 36 million dollar cap penalty the day before the start of free agency for over cap spending in a "uncapped year" (The spirit of the rules and all as John Mara so eloquently derped it out to the media.....). Nobody is a better master of dick moves than the NFL and Goodell.
Editor's Note: Below is the original article I planned on writing but never posted because I am such a slacker. When the news came of The Man Cave coming back to 980, I figured I needed to write a new article which is what you just read above.
