Dan Snyder’s Comeback To Diss By Emmitt Smith Was Total Weaksauce

Last week, as you may have seen here at the Sportress, Emmitt Smith laid a verbal beatdown on Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder during an interview with SLAM Magazine. Smith, when discussing his extreme dislike of the Washington Redskins and the joy he felt when the Cowboys beat them, told the magazine said joy was only increased after Snyder assumed ownership of the team. In a way only Emmitt Smith can said it, the former Cowboys running back blamed his feelings regarding Snyder on the pride wearing itself on the owner’s forehead:

“And he’s not a compassionate person, not a compassionate person at all from what I understand. And that makes me just want to pummel somebody. You know, you hate to see pride, wearing itself on his forehead and his chest. And to me, arrogance sticks out like a sore thumb when you talk about him. And the lack of compassion for others is a problem. Because it’s not that hard to be compassionate; you just choose to.”

BAM! Now that’s a nice rip right there. Snyder’s retort to Smith’s claim that he has a prideful forehead and chest (whatever that means) was not quite as good.

“I applaud Emmitt Smith’s induction into the NFL Hall of Fame and, from what I understand, he’s a heck of a dancer. I think we’ve only met once briefly at an NFL function in 2000.  I will say, however, that I like to think of myself as being a compassionate person, except toward the Dallas Cowboys.”

Ugh. Lame. With that sort of comeback suckitude, these guys are never going to end up facing each other in a steel cage match as this rate. Man up, Snyder!
