At the lectern stood Mike Shanahan , who has a five-year, $35 million contract that gives him final authority over football decisions as head coach and executive vice president of the Washington Redskins. Seated at a nearby table was Bruce Allen , the first general manager Dan Snyder has hired in 11 years of owning the team. And nowhere on the stage was Snyder, who sat next to his wife, Tanya , as a member of the audience in the Redskins Park auditorium in Ashburn, Va. It was the first time he hasn't introduced a new coach, a powerful symbol of how the balance of power has shifted within a proud franchise.

Twenty-four dollars. That, supposedly, was the price Gov. Peter Minuit paid American Indians for the island of Manhattan in 1625. It's a tale historians find suspect. In the first place, whatever Minuit paid was in goods valued at 60 17th-century Dutch guilders; the calculation that this equaled 24 U.S. dollars was made two centuries later -- on what basis, evidently, no one can say. In the second place, the Indians with whom he traded had no understanding of the European idea that land could be sold, no conception of it as a thing one could own. But whatever the details of the transaction, the moral of the story has remained beacon clear for four centuries: The Indians got taken.

ASHBURN, Va. - This is what passes for normal in the strange world of Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins. Soon after the end of another so-so season, a long, black limousine pulls up at Redskin Park and spits out a multimillionaire coach with a glistening resume and a knack for saying all the right things at his first news conference. Former University of Florida coach Steve Spurrier became Snyder's fourth head coach in the space of less than two years when he was hired earlier this week to replace Marty Schottenheimer.

IT SEEMS LIKE only yesterday - actually, it was four years ago - that Ravens coach Brian Billick would not let anyone on his team mention the word "playoffs" during the regular season. He had his reasons. No sense getting ahead of yourself. Play them one game at a time. Take nothing for granted. Fill in your favorite sports axiom here if I missed any. I'm bringing this up only because there is a whole new philosophy at Ravens training camp this year. You can't walk 10 feet at McDaniel College without tripping over someone who wants to talk about the Super Bowl.

Steve Sessa's physical stature is the result of long summer hours in the weight room, long runs through the streets and parks of Columbia and still more time in the local Headhunters' wrestling club. "He's a man-child," Hammond assistant Lee Young said of the sophomore. Many who saw the 15-year-old wrestle at yesterday's Francis Scott Key Holiday Invitational tournament were overwhelmed by his appearance. Those who faced him were simply overwhelmed. Sessa won the 189-pound title by nailing his fifth and sixth first-period pins, raising his record to 9-1 and leading the unranked Bears to their second straight crown in the 35th annual event.

Times are changing for the San Francisco 49ers, who were once noted as the best team that money could buy.The 49ers won five Super Bowls back in the days when owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. could use his late father's shopping mall empire to subsidize the team.DeBartolo, who was suspended by the league after a guilty plea in a Louisiana gambling investigation, is now negotiating to sell the team to his sister, Denise, who says her brother ran up $94 million in debt. Assuming she keeps it, Denise is more likely to run the team as a business.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder strolled the sidelines at his team's training camp like the boss at a company picnic. As floodlights bathed the field one recent night and the sticky summer air cooled, he chatted with coaches and team executives. But when the scrimmage heated up, so did Snyder. He moved quickly in his Redskins polo shirt and khaki pants, angling for a clear view through a crowd of players. A long touchdown pass brought a roar from several thousand fans.

Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings has been criticized for his decision to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers despite the fact that a son - that he had only recently learned existed - had died of head injuries consistent with child abuse. Mr. Peterson, a running back known for his personal and professional toughness, said he never thought about not playing, and while some commentators criticized the decision, his teammates and fellow athletes rallied to his side, saying the man should be permitted to seek whatever solace he could at such a time.

Taking aim With the Saints out of the playoffs, QB Drew Brees needs 753 passing yards in his final two games to overtake Dan Marino's single-season record (5,084). Brees should get a bunch against the Lions today. The key will be next week's game against Carolina, which might need to win for seeding purposes. Marino's record should survive. Taking heat Jim Zorn's Redskins started the season 6-2, but after losing five of six, the coach's job security is in question. Last week, he pointed the finger at himself.
