This time, on Monday night, the media was allowed into the locker room earlier than usual, early enough to catch Dan Snyder offering congratulations to anyone who would take them.
He shook the hand of one staffer, telling him as he walked away, "I hate those mother-------."
Look, Snyder has done some awful things as a public figure in the area. His history will never be forgotten, and if we (as a fan base) grow to like, or even appreciate, Dan Snyder as the owner I seriously doubt the picture of his personality will every really change; it'll just be ignored.
But I think little by little he's been chipping away at the hatred there is for him - some of it accidental (this), some of it intentional (think: official PR like stuff). Having a team worth cheering for being led by a kid named Griffin certainly helps.
