Drew Magary's annual Deadspin feature, "Why Your Favorite Team Sucks," remains a thing of beauty and a joy forever.  With Gawker sued into oblivion by a libertarian nut-job, I hope it finds a proper venue in the future.

Anyhow, here's his take on the Redskins:

"As always, this team is wart on the ass of America. I think less of anyone who thinks highly of them and their shitbag owner. Matthew McConaughey likes Dan Snyder and now I won’t watch his movies. People living in DC proper—a legitimately fantastic city—give half a shit about the Skins, because they know they’re strictly the domain of drunken racist suburbanites, rednecks dumb enough to plunk down hundreds of dollars every week to get trapped inside that roach motel of a stadium, and libertarian shitheads who abhor entitlement programs but work 9-to-5 for defense contractors. Everything wrong about the NFL is encapsulated herein. I wish the Skins never existed."

Pretty much.
