Default Dan Snyder: Class Act

Quote:
"He said: 'If you come back here, you'll never play again,' " Coles recalled, adding that Snyder promised to send him a flat-screen TV on which to watch games. " 'We'll bench you for two years then we'll cut you.' He said: 'If you come back, we'll torture you.' "

"Once he was threatening me, I said to myself: 'Man, I know I have to leave.' I knew I couldn't come back because of the way they handled it."

Coles said that he was so disturbed by Snyder's remarks that he called later. "I said. 'Why would you threaten my career? I've done nothing wrong,' " Coles said. "And [Snyder] admitted that he was being emotional."

He is a businessman, plain and simple. There is no need for treating people good if you just buy and sell them like he does.

Default Dan Snyder

Given how Snyder behaved (regarding Coles), I'm amazed that he's been as successful in business as he has....a big factor in being a successful businessperson is not being emotional.
