When is Daniel Snyder going to be relieved of his duties as an owner and forced to sell? (1 Viewer)

Is it safe for me to assume I'm the only person hoping he prevails and keeps the team?

Why on earth would you hope for this?
It's the fair and obvious question you ask to point I had reservations making the post to which you responded as I figured I'd have to endure the brunt of criticism for not wanting to see the team forced from him or even worst that people would just think this was some kind of shtick, which it's not.

It's as simple for me as I think I'm bound to an inherent belief that when you buy something it's yours to do with as you please. The idea someone can force you to give up something you bought because they don't like what you are doing with it is not something I am comfortable supporting even if it's something as public as a sports team. I got no agenda. I don't like Snyder and did not care for Sterling or Sarver either and felt the same in each instance. Againt not shtick or an opinion I would expect to have many agree with me on. I'm all for turning up the heat on these type of people to point they feel compelled to sale the team and exit their league(s). All for that. I just don't like when the process is is basically forcefully taking the team from them because you don't like the PR/social awareness blowback related to how they run their teams, especially when we are not talking any issues like breaking laws.
Its not the same as a "normal" business. His actions potentially lose money for the other 31 owners. They are all aware of the game and agree to it when they buy the franchise.

Owning a sports team is different than owning real estate. You're part of a collective and part of the terms agreed upon purchasing the team is giving up certain autonomy and rights you would otherwise have.

For those looking for additional reasons to dislike Snyder, my wife's cousin used to work for the organization and is married to a former player. I've heard some stories... Employees instructed not to ever make eye contact with Mr. Snyder. Employees allowed to use the gym but if Mr. Snyder enters the gym you must immediately leave. Lots of fun stuff like that. One of the most toxic work cultures I've ever heard described.
Same. Know several people that in most organizations would be only 1 step below him, maybe 2 steps. Can't be in elevator with him. No eye contact. No talking. He doesn't talk directly to you in meetings. If you are his CFO, you are never supposed to be seen or heard by him. The guy is an incredibly talented shyster. He cheated his way into money which is pretty well documented. And he doesn't know how to run anything. Commanders, Six Flags, etc take your pick. He cares about one person ... Danny, and the only way he knows how to protect Danny is through the same lawsuits he's used throughout his life.

He is also one of the least wealthy NFL owners. All of his money (relative to other NFL owners) is pretty much in the team valuation. He's already bumping up against their cap for not having enough money. That's really where his troubles will be and why he won't get a stadium deal.

Years before this franchise has a new owner IMO. He will fight them to the death.

Snyder seems scared like @fatness said earlier in the thread. He doesn't have enough dirt to make the owners think they cannot overcome it and they can get out in front of this and apologize for Snyder and his actions on behalf of the NFL and spin it as building a stronger NFL for the future that includes the great fans of the Commanders and MOVE ON!

In a week or two the shocked screams from whatever might be in the closet will die down and as long as they are vocal about not wanting to allow 1 owner to bully the other 31, think everyone will understand that tunes in weekly to watch the games, they won't lose a single fan over it, in fact they might gain more.

I think Dan has broken the law, or at very least, cheated LOTS of people out of money. He's a POS, and outside of winning our 4th SB, this is probably the 2nd greatest thing that could happen to this fanbase, if he his finally removed.

If he was keeping two sets of books -- and there seems to be credible evidence that he was, not to mention a history of behavior that suggests he's someone who would do exactly that -- then that's effectively stealing. I don't think that falls under the category of "when you buy something, it's yours to do with as you please."

I don't know enough about the guy, but I almost always tend to root for someone who is shunned so much by the general public.
That's part of it as well, when the world seemingly piles on someone I just have a tendency to start pulling for them turn the tides. Not that Snyder is a sympathetic figure.

A few have brought this up but he's not been so much as charged with a crime as far as I know. This seems more like an area for law enforcement then owners trying to take his team away but either way I think it's premature to conclude he's guilty of criminal offenses.

Well, it's true he hasn't been charged with anything. It's also true that he's still the Commanders owner. I don't have any problem with a guy like Snyder being put through the wringer. But if it's too early to say "he hasn't been charged with anything," then it's also premature to say the owners are trying to take his team away from him. In both instances, there's a lot of smoke.

This is a bizarre answer IMO because it's a FRANCHISE. Regardless of what business you're in, when you buy a FRANCHISE you agree to the rules set by the central company. A FRANCHISE is NOT an independent company. The NFL PROMOTES for it's FRANCHISES, provides education and training, manuals and rules.......and rightfully expects certain things in return. no franchise owner in ANY BUSINESS is free to do whatever they like

I also don't believe he has nearly the dirt on other owners that he's implying he has. He's just creating fear to create hesitation to create inaction among the other owners and the NFL. Reminds me of Vladimir Putin without nuclear weapons.
The thing about blackmail is that the more explicit the threat, the less effective it becomes. The best (from the blackmailer's POV) is if the victim has done something wrong and suspects the blackmailer knows about it. Once they reveal the information they have, it's less effective because a) the victim knows what they know and can judge accordingly, and b) the blackmailer has now committed a crime. And of course, once they actually release the information they have lost all their leverage.

In Snyder's case, I think he wanted NFL owners to suspect he knew all their secrets and therefore fear him, but once ESPN reported the story and made it explicit it hurt him and may well end up hastening his demise.

Just talked to Drew Shipley, the @Commanders
fan whose $14kprize check from the team bounced after winning the 50/50 raffle week 1. The team paid him what he was owed this afternoon but he remains stunned. "Who am I supposed to talk to? Am I supposed to call Dan Snyder myself?"

This belongs in the dysfunctional thread ... but Snyder was mentioned so 🤷
Thread say he hassled the commanders for a month they finally paid him and then the check bounced

Forbes' Mike Ozanian reports Daniel Snyder has hired Bank of America to sell the Washington Commanders.​

It's news for which Washington fans have waited for two decades. Ozanian said "Snyder and his bankers are exploring all options and a transaction could be for the entire NFL team or a minority stake." Snyder has interest from "at least" four groups looking to purchase the team, which is valued at $5.6 billion despite 30 years of futility. He could remain part of the organization depending on the details of the sale. This is surely welcomed news for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the other 31 NFL owners, some of whom have expressed interest in ousting Snyder as Washington's owner. Snyder and his organization have a laughingstock and embarrassment for both the league and a Washington fanbase that has whittled down to almost nothing. Most Washington home games sound like away games for the Commanders. The league has investigated Snyder for fostering a culture of sexual harassment. Women who have worked for the Commanders have accused Snyder himself of sexual misconduct.

He would make a great evil figure head in a new football league like the ones they are trying to launch now with the Rock or whoever.
He should start his own league with the $6B he's going to get when he sells the team. Complete disaster as an owner, not even good for the community in terms of PR.
I'll never forgive Washington and Riggins for running over Don McNeil and the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII when I was 8 years old but please free the Washington fan base, they deserve better.

You know that a-hole will just sell 49.99% of the team, build his new stadium, and middle finger all the Commander fans til the end of time.

There is nowhere in DC, MD, or VA Snyder can build a stadium. All 3 jurisdictions are sick of his crap.

I don’t know where or when the photo of Jerry Jones came out. I can’t find anything other than the photo. If it was just now, do we assume this is Snyder’s Private investigators work? Initial launch of dirt he has. ?
