Snyder aims to make a deal worse than LaVar Arrington or Brandon Short

RedZone Capital acquired Dick Clark Productions for $175mm this morning. RedZone was co-founded by Six Flags chairman and Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, who will assume the chairman role of the acquired entity. Six Flags will assume a 40% stake in the transaction, and the pure adrenaline rush that is “The Academy of Country Music Awards.”
The deal is bursting with synergies, as nothing captures the imagination of the theme-park attending nation’s youth like the back catalog of “American Bandstand” and “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” Like the Batman ride, you need to keep your arms, hands and sanity inside the "The Golden Globes" at all times, and pregnant women with heart murmurs are strongly advised not to watch the "American Music Awards."
It was rumored that Snyder also made the move in attempts to enter the scary geriatric from Six Flags adverts into park-held “So You Think You Can Dance” competitions.
Synder’s RedZone II fund purchased Johnny Rockets, the 1950s diner, earlier this year for an undisclosed amount in another attempt to alienate people young and willing enough to ride roller coasters.
