Washington Redskins owner gave employees bag of apples for holiday bonus?

Under the rule of owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Redskins have never held back when it came to spending money – at least not for their on the field product.

Off the field though? That’s another story.

According to the Washington Post, the team has cut back in recent years including a hefty reduction in team employees – some of which reported that they received a bag of apples for their holiday bonus a few seasons ago:

Ex-staffers reported cutbacks during the recent recession — multiple employees reported receiving bags of apples one year in lieu of holiday bonuses

As hilariously awful as that might be – that can’t be completely legit, can it?

I don’t doubt a report suggesting that the employees were actually given a bag of apples, but it had to be in a joking form. I’m not sure what I’d do if somebody handed me a bag of apples instead of a check at holiday time, though I imagine whatever I opted to do – it wouldn’t be legal in many states.
