None of the above.
A. Danny is still a crappy owner.
B. Even though he apparently isn't pulling strings in football like he used to. (Wait and see if Danny can stand it more than a year like w/Schottenhiemer.)
C. Untrue. People can change.

Every time a few stories/statements come out that kinda show that Snyder isn't that bad, I've heard stories not long afterwards showing the opposite. I won't believe it until I see it for a few years.
"Weak right 40 gut. Yum! Yum! How bout that one baby!"
First time in his tenure that he has hired a GM...first time in his career that he has gone more than 12 months without Vinny at his side...first time in his tenure that Snyder has done everything his detractors said he should have been doing all along.
So, yeah, I'll go ahead and buy that he has changed and is a "new" owner..."cynicism" does not equal "truth".
This draft shows Shanny isn't just about "win now," and other than your conjecture, what solid evidence do you have that Allen is a yes man? I guess when you're obsessed with hating on one man to the point you'll never concede any of his positives but will over-exaggerate and fabricate the negatives then you'd come up with such a post as yours.
A purely win now coach would have drafted Gabbert instead of being patient at the QB position, a yes man GM would be allowing Snyder to have his say and would be going nuts in FA, instead of handing out reasonable contracts like Allen has been doing and not overbidding for players (like with Atogwe we made an offer, let him see what else was out there, and patiently waited to see if he would choose use, in years past Atogwe would have gotten a ridiculous contract while being wined and dined in DC).

The correct answer to the poll is "I love lamp"
With that out of the way, I believe that he has realized that he doesn't know enough about football to interfere with the football operations of the franchise. The reasons that I dislike him have little to do with that however, and more to do with his off field behavior. I dont think I will ever like him, but he is starting to earn a little respect. Once the wins start to be amassed on the field then he will get more respect. It is as simple as that.
Step 1: Ignore Offensive Line
Step 2: ??????
Step 3: Super Bowl!!!
Danny is a star ****er. No other way to say it. Danny still went "big" in bringing in Shanahan and to a lesser extent Allen, whose name is royalty in this area thanks to his dad.
I'll believe Danny has changed as an owner when we have a no name GM and a no name coach and Danny stays out of the football ops. So far that trifecta has never once happened.
I also believe he will never change when it comes to being an arrogant corporate daddy's boy with a little man's complex who is a grade A prick.

So for you, regardless of how dedicated, hard working and honest to the cause they may or may not be; the only way to build it right, so to speak, would to be hire a no-name GM and HC?
I'd be curious to hear your reasoning behind that view point, if I'm not reading way more into it then you wrote,
Its something hopefully we won't have to worry about for a while. I'd like Mike to coach for between 7-10 years here and if Kyle is still on the staff and has done a good job as the O-coord, then I'd have no problem with him succeeding his father. However, if not, it'll be interesting to see what happens the next time Dan has to fill the vacancy.
The 'Skins could win 5 consecutive SB's and people will still hate and distrust Snyder.
He has obviously backed off.
Can we stop talking about him now?
Big thanks to WhoRUSupposed2B for the sig!
