Dan Snyder can re-brand the Washington franchise all he wants this offseason, he will never be able to get rid of the stench from within the organization that was unveiled last week.
Last Thursday, The Post reported that 15 female ex-Redskins employees alleged sexual harassment during their time with the franchise.
Emily Applegate spoke on the record about her experiences.
“It was the most miserable experience of my life,” Applegate told The Post. “And we all tolerated it, because we knew if we complained—and they reminded us of this—there were 1,000 people out there who would take our job in a heartbeat.”
NBC Sports insider Peter King covered the story in his Football Morning In America column on Monday and one NFL front office executive said that basically no one wants to work for Washington owner Dan Snyder.
“One veteran front-office man with another team who knows the franchise well told me that no one wants to work for Snyder (that’s pretty obvious), especially after widely respected NFL business authority Brian Lafemina lasted only eight months with the team before being fired in late 2018.”
Another former Redskins employee also described the work environment.
“And another former club employee told me the atmosphere around the team in his time there was like a frat house.”
Fans may have been calling for Snyder to sell the franchise, but that seems rather unlikely. We can still dream.
