The National Football Post picked up on former Redskins great RB John Riggins taking a pretty hard shot at Skins owner Daniel Snyder:
John Riggins, the Super Bowl MVP and Washington Redskins icon, has taken his YouTube act against Daniel Snyder and Vinny Cerrato to a new level. The outspoken and loquacious former running back found a much larger platform from which to attack. He’ll be featured tonight on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” and he’s firing new ammunition at Snyder in what sounds like it has become personal in an attack in which he questions the character and heart of the man.
“I’ve been asked this question a lot, when they say do you have an ax to grind, and I think anytime an older player criticizes or says anything about his former team, unless he’s throwing Bon Mots at them, that all of a sudden you get a, ‘What’s he griping at,’ type of thing?” Riggins said in a transcript released by Showtime. “Maybe that’s the case. But truthfully I do have an ax to grind and I just realized I have been a little bit disingenuous. But this is a bad guy that owns this team. I’ll just tell you that upfront. Bad guy. And if the commissioner is worried about potential new owners and saying some of these guys shouldn’t apply, he might want to police his own inside guys.”
