It's no secret that the Washington Redskins have been labeled as one of the worst and most dysfunctional franchises in the NFL for as long as we can remember. Now, former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington has gone on television to publicly state what everyone around the league has definitely been thinking.
In an appearance on FS1's "Speak For Yourself," Arrington claimed that the root of the Redskins' longstanding issues has been ownership, and he's certainly correct in that respect.
During Redskins owner Dan Snyder's tenure, the 'Skins have gone an abysmal 139-185-1. He's failed to cater to the needs of the team year in and year out and has mishandled situation after situation with key players, including Trent Williams and rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins. He just fired his head coach at 5 in the morning.
And that's not even detailing how much his own fans hate him.
Arrington played six seasons for the Redskins, and he definitely had his share of negative experiences involving Snyder. The fact that he vividly recalls being told that certain people weren't even allowed to look at Snyder if they weren't important enough goes to show just how toxic this owner is to the franchise.
At this point, this is almost making the Miami Dolphins look like a decent franchise. Not quite yet, but almost.
