Things continue to go from bad to worse for the Washington Commanders Football Team and owner Daniel Snyder. Snyder’s ownership, which began 23 years ago in 1999, has been chalked full of scandals, poor team performance and terrible personnel decisions, both on the field and within the front office. But the latest accusations against the Commanders may actually land some people in prison, according to NFL Insider Mike Florio.
According to a longtime employee of the Commanders of 24 years, they are alleging that the organization has engaged in financial fraud. Allegedly, the team shorted and underreported revenue that is to be shared by all 32 teams in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Secondly, it is being alleged that the organization was keeping security deposits from their season ticket holders, the most loyal fans of all.
Florio discussed the allegations and the severity behind them (if true) during today’s appearance on the Dan Patrick Show:
Choosing a controversial and unliked new nickname for your franchise and losing season after losing season is one thing. But when you are supposedly committing financial fraud, that is something that should not be taken lightly. And it appears some people are going to get into a lot of trouble over this.
It might be time for Mr. Snyder to finally sell this franchise, something the long suffering fans of Washington have been waiting for.
