They’re talking about it. I think that’s the best we can expect from the capitalist group of predators known as the NFL team owners.

One of them is a embarrassment long in the Premier League. The league commissioner often talks about protecting the shield, while Daniel Snyder regularly poops on it. The Washington Commanders owner is currently not even believed to be the face of the franchise as he is serving his suspension which is not a suspension following an NFL investigation that found the organization was indeed “toxic.”

The fact that Snyder was fined $10 million as a result, and no official discipline, is one of the many reasons some NFL owners are done with him. It would take 24 votes to force Snyder out of the NFL, and USA Today’s Jarrett Bell said the owners would “are counting votes.” That investigation was led by Beth Wilkinson, who asked the NFL for an oral report, not a written recommendation. According to a 106.7 The Fan report in March 2021, if the NFL had asked for its written recommendation, it would: called to remove Snyder as a team owner.

Why shouldn’t NFL owners be mad? The teams he has drafted are mediocre at best since he bought the franchise in 1999. The only franchise quarterback they’ve had in that span, his knee crumbled on the worst playing surface in the league, and arguably the entire Washington metropolitan area. However, when it comes to inappropriate and despicable behavior, Snyder’s squad is one of the best ever to have basic morals.

The New York Times, The Washington Post, ESPN and others have all reported in the past four years that Snyder’s organization cultivated an atmosphere that led to sexual harassment. This includes a Costa Rica trip with cheerleaders from Washington who were dangerously close to sex trafficking at best – topless photo shoots men witnessed, as well as cheerleaders being asked to escort some of the men for the night to an island they are not from and their passports were gathered – and team managers harassing employees and reporters. The emails Jon Gruden sent that checked to see if all the cubicles and phobias had been leaked from an investigation into the commanders’ toxic workplace – after, of course, the fine for having a toxic workplace. Currently, the commanders investigated by the State of Virginia, the District of Columbia and also the United States Congress.

The House Oversight Committee has been investigating the commanders since October 2021. Perhaps they were as disappointed as some of the other owners were with the way the NFL conducted its investigations and the punishment imposed. This new investigation revealed allegations that the commanders had two sets of books to evade their revenue-sharing responsibilities and yet another woman who testified before Congress about being sexually harassed, this time by Snyder herself.

Adam “Pacman” Jones’ one-year suspension was one of Roger Goodell’s first great acts as a commissioner, not for doing something illegal, but for everything that surrounded Jones. He had been arrested four times in 14 months, and in the letter Writing to Jones, Goodell wrote that the former defender’s behavior “embarrassed and made fun of yourself, your club and the NFL, and has damaged the reputation of players across the league.”

Jones was a free man at the time, but the NFL had had enough. To this day I do not agree with that penalty, but nowadays I understand the position of the competition better. Things aren’t looking good for national and local news outlets, and ESPN is constantly broadcasting reports of a player in handcuffs.

Of course, Goodell doesn’t have the same leeway with team owners as with players – it’s hard to punish your boss. But obviously some members of that group are tired of Snyder embarrassing that franchise and the shield.

It’s no small step to force Snyder. Jerry Richardson agreed to leave, as did Eddie DeBartolo Jr. – who pleaded guilty to a felony – nearly 30 years ago. This is Donald Sterling territory, as Snyder proved he is just as stubborn after refusing to change his franchise’s racist utterances until the people with naming rights to his stadium told him to do so. But owners, even anonymously, will talk to reporters about being mad at one of them. If they don’t even talk to the media, it can be serious. They’re tired of Snyder making them look bad and maybe that means the franchise that had people hand out funeral programs over a decade ago outside Exxon Stations before his death can finally take a meaningful step in the right direction.
