Riggo being Riggo

When John Riggins was outspoken and even embarrassing folks would give him a pass. That legacy is not only intact, it's growing.

Riggo doesn't know

John Riggins was a great Washington Redskin. Now he's an entertainer, a great listener but not an insider.

Riggins has earned the right

The question if Riggins crossed the line is pretty much moot, because he left that checkpoint in his rear view mirror years ago.

Riggo overstepped

Except in the eyes of the most rabid Redskins fans, John Riggins' rant will hurt his legacy.

Riggo is right

I don't have to listen to John Riggins to dislike Daniel Snyder.

Who cares what Riggo thinks?

When was the last time John Riggins said something meaningful or insightful about anything? "Loosen up, Sandy, baby" doesn't count.

Legacy untouchable

He's John Riggins. The Diesel. Big John. Riggo. That will never change. Never.
