Add Dan Snyder to the List of Disgraced Former Pro Sports Team Owners

Washington football fans are celebrating this week as two bid for commanders Allegedly came that will shoot Dan Snyder in the level of the atmosphere occupied by Donald Sterling, Robert Sarver, and ex-owners of other professional sports franchises were released. Let’s call it irrelevance.

Don’t worry, Snyder won’t take up so much space that there isn’t a chair to wait james dolan,

But this last scene should not be allowed to happen in the capital of our country. Let Snyder off the hook for all the damage he caused during his time in Washington as the owner of the variously named football teams.

Or NFL for that matter.

Snyder has a toxic workplace

it’s an ownership group that lets small and large disasters pile up And then took action when they realized it affected the bottom line. pervasive culture of harassment, No problem! Oh wait, the culture of harassment is part of the reason Maryland and Virginia won’t join Snyder on building a new stadium around Washington DC.C., And is this affecting the revenue that the Washington franchise is contributing to the socialist revenue pool that benefits all owners?

Now this is a problem.

when Snyder was allegedly leading an organization mass producer nondisclosure agreement To buy a little peace and quiet, all was well. heck, he might even have given it to houston Some thoughts from Texans on the whole issue DeShaun Watson’s Massage Problem came in front. ,Watson has denied the allegations, but when ESPN broke the news That Snyder took a $55 million loan without disclosing to partners in the team’s ownership group triggered a federal investigation that could not be followed up.

The NFL should make its investigation public

The NFL should make the investigation of the Washington football team public, not for Snyder, but for the organization itself, This is a group of owners willing to defend the inevitable, ignore the undeserving and side with the most toxic man in sports ownership since the NBA ousted Sterling from Los Angeles.

Protecting the shield does not mean protecting the men who use NFL ownership as a platform for abuse and mismanagement. Snyder being fired after a $6 billion pay day is not a happy ending to this disaster. With All That Cash, He Could Buy a Bigger Yacht Than the $100 Million “Lady S” to Spend Reportedly avoiding summers summons on the Mediterranean,

When will this ownership group learn that bosses who abuse power cannot be great business partners when it comes to cheerleaders, women in the office, and other employees? The NFL has a very poor track record when it comes to choosing owners. Maybe there aren’t too many Nobel laureates who can afford the kind of cash to buy an NFL franchise – “Would you like to be paid in crypto, sir?” — but the NFL wants to make these guys a little better.

This crop of NFL owners consists of people who have been arrested, prosecuted and investigated and this The Seattle Times story does a good job of detailing some of those events here., The NFL doesn’t need to look for perfection in potential owners, maybe just find some candidates who are a little less fraud-adjacent.

Of course, obscene wealth is the foremost necessity, but of course that doesn’t preclude some decency as well. I’ve heard that some wealthy people are able to foster a non-hostile work environment on a regular basis. Can we add that to the search criteria as well?

The problem with owners like Snyder is that they are a problem for the NFL, and the league needs a better way to deal with the metric tons of damage they can do to their teams and the larger sports world. Owning an NFL team is a stage. I think we can all agree that knowing anything about who Dan Snyder is is an intrusion on our collective sports consciousness. A place he apparently would have been happy if the NFL hadn’t slowly forced him to sell the team.

Because abusing some people doesn’t matter when they have that kind of power.
