As one could have easily guessed, Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder has denied the scathing report about having “dirt” on commissioner Roger Goodell and other NFL owners.
Last week, ESPN published a bombshell article which suggests that Snyder has gathered dirt on Goodell and other team owners. According to the report, Snyder feels as though he has enough information to “blow up” multiple owners.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Snyder sent a letter to other NFL owners and denied the report from ESPN. Snyder said the article had “false and malicious statements”. The controversial owner also called it “shameful” of ESPN to publish it.
Here are some of the more interesting reactions to Snyder’s letter from social media.
On Tuesday, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay made headlines by stating he believes there is indeed “merit” for Snyder to be removed as the owner of the Commanders. The team responded to Irsay’s comments in a statement that you can view below.
24 owners would need to vote in favor of removing Snyder as the team owner.
Snyder became the new owner of the Washington NFL franchise in 1999. At the time, they were once viewed as a model organization, having won three Super Bowls with a trio of different starting quarterbacks under legendary head coach Joe Gibbs.
But the franchise has been in complete disarray with Snyder at the helm.
Snyder and several previous Commanders executives have been accused of bullying, intimidation, sexual harassment and leading a toxic workplace environment. The NFL conducted an investigation into the allegations,. In June 2021, the league handed Snyder a $10 million fine.
The franchise has posted a woeful 158-216-1 record under his ownership, with only six playoff appearances and just two postseason wins. Their last playoff win came in the 2005 Wild Card Round against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
There have been countless calls among the NFL world for Snyder to be removed as owner. Only time will tell if those many fans (and apparently, some NFL owners) get their wish.
