Its an interesting issue. The NBA's forcing out of Donald Sterling is the most comparable example of a league forcing out an owner for inappropriate behavior. Of course, that's a different league, so its not direct precedence. Still, one could argue that Snyder's wrongdoing is worse that Sterlings or, at a minimum, more voluminous.

I'm pretty sure most Washington fans would not miss him.


They don't have smoking gun audio tape proof on Snyder like they did on Sterling.

That's true, but there sure seems to be a lot of corroboration of the allegations against Snyder.

I think NFL owners are more powerful than NBA owners, for the most part, so I don't know if Snyder will be pushed out.

One of the things Andrew Brandt and Liz Clarke were talking about on his podcast is Washington used to be a real political power center for the NFL. The owners box was a who's who of DC power players. With Snyder, they've lost that.

I think the league and Washington fans are stuck with Snyder. The only play the league and the DC area has is to keep him in the dump that is Fed Ex. He wants a palace like AT&T and Sofi at the RFK site.

I have no love for Snyder but I am opposed to him being forced out before any investigation. Even if he acted inappropriately, I'm not sure "canceling" him is warranted. I mean, not all acts of inappropriate behavior are created equally so I think it prudent to wait to find out the details before claiming a sort of SJW imminent domain and taking his franchise away.

I have to wonder if they "can't" figure it out or are just choosing to drag it out. It's free publicity and the longer they go without, the bigger deal it will be when they decide on one.

I'm not a Daniel Snyder fan by any means but if(when?) they do that, it's going to be pretty scary. The woke mob will have stolen a team away from someone who did nothing wrong.
