Football Frolics 2
Susan Estrich comments on the Washington Redskin’s decision to pick Reuben Foster, who has a history of domestic violence. A snippet:
I remarked to someone the other day that there is only one hope for the Washington Redskins, who have fallen far since their glory days under Coach Joe Gibbs and owner Jack Kemp Cooke.
They need to trade for a new owner.
Jack Kent Cooke was a class act. When he wanted a new arena for the Washington Bullets (now the Wizards), he didn’t come begging to local governments for taxpayer money.
No, he just built it.
Addendum, the Next Day:
H/T to Walden for correcting my hazy recollection. See the comments.

that was Abe Pollin. An even more class-act.
(Although Cooke did use mostly his own money on what became FedEx field)
