On Tuesday, at the NFL owners meetings in New York City, Roger Goodell was asked why the league hasn’t released the findings from their investigation into the Washington Football Team’s workplace misconduct to the public.
Of course, many have been demanding that the league share their findings, especially after it was revealed that they had known about Jon Gruden’s offensive emails for quite some time now — even though they only recently became public when the New York Times leaked them.
When asked why the league won’t release their findings on Tuesday, Goodell claimed that their top priority was to protect the anonymity of those who came forward — even though some former employees had showed up to the meetings earlier, with letters they had sent the league asking them to release the results of their investigation.
Needless to say, Goodell’s response came across to many as a bunch of bullsh*t. Lisa Banks, the attorney representing several former Washington Football Team members, was among those who were unsatisfied with Goodell’s response. So she took to Twitter to fire off her own round of criticism towards the league commissioner.
Lisa claims that her clients asked for “transparency and accountability” when they took part in the investigation, not “protection.” She also released a letter she sent to the NFL, detailing how they could comply with the public’s request to release the findings, while also protecting the anonymity of those involved.
