“Also says he looks forward to the #Cowboys going into Washington and delivering ‘capital punishment’ this fall,” NFL Network Tom Pelissero tweeted.
Under Snyder, the Commanders had a 164-220-2 record with just six playoff appearances in 24 years. His overall record has nothing on the terrible behavior surrounding the franchise as the owner has faced charges of alleged sexual harassment, creating a toxic work environment, finical improprieties to defraud the NFL and IRS, and engaging in deceptive business practices with season ticket holders.
Josh Harris will now become the team’s new majority owner. Minority owners of the team will include Harris’ business partner David Blitzer, Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
Harris already owns NBA team Philadelphia 76ers and NHL team New Jersey Devils, and now has an NFL team to add to his portfolio.
Jerry Jones will get his first taste of Harris’ Commanders in Dallas on Thursday Night Football in Week 12 and in Washington for the final game of the 2023 regular season.
The Commanders were the only team that did not finish above .500 in the NFC east last year, but did finish with an 8-8-1 record. It was their best record since the 2016 record. Washington has been to the playoffs just six times since 1993.
Washington hasn’t won in the playoffs since beating Tampa Bay 17-10 in the 2005 NFC wild-card round.
