It's a kinda jiu-jitsu move. Irsay can't be harmed anymore by Snyder and he can say "that wasn't me who moved the team" and "yes I had personal issues with drugs,etc... but I didn't cheat my business partners, nor did I run an organization where sexual assault was rampant, nor did I try to pimp out my cheerleaders,etc..." He can simply point to his scandals as personal failings rather than ones that affect a team and the NFL in general. Snyder can't do that. And I'm willing to bet that the other owners are very glad Irsay is taking the point on this because he is almost bulletproof against Snyder right now. In movie terms he's the not-squeaky-clean anti-hero that takes on the villain. If we’re using movie analogies, I’d say to me he’s more like the dead body that the hero(es) use to shield themselves from incoming gunfire. Can’t really hurt him anymore, so go ahead bad guy, go ahead and unload your clip into him and we’ll keep moving forward behind him. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
