The NFL owners gathered this week have a different mood compared to past years. Alongside the talk about NFL refereeing and how to protect the quarterback, there’s also the potential problem of Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder.

A recent report from ESPN targeted its embattled owner and claimed it was his. violated the terms of the penalty He allegedly hired private investigators to investigate other NFL owners and commissioner Roger Goodell, and used investigators to “harass and intimidate witnesses” while the Washington franchise was investigated. ESPN also reported that it believes Snyder is “dirty” enough about Goodell and the other owners to let him “blow up” the league.

Later on Tuesday, Snyder broke his silence and sent a letter to NFL owners to address the allegations surrounding him. per ESPN.

Dear ,

I hope you and your family are well.

I would like to refer to a recent ESPN article that contained false and malicious statements about Washington Commanders, our management team, me and my family. It is particularly embarrassing for ESPN to downplay the real achievements of our President, Jason Wright, who ESPN claims has been placed in Commanders by the Union and has no power to make real change. I know you know it’s a lie. Unfortunately, ESPN ignored our efforts to correct many of the errors in their articles before they went live.

There is one claim in the ESPN article that I think is important to address right away. The article cited unnamed sources: “Snyder is said to have instructed law firms to hire private detectives to investigate other owners” and Commissioner Goodell. This is clearly wrong and aims to erode the trust and goodwill among owners, which I take quite seriously. I have never hired any private investigator to investigate any owner or Commissioner. I did not instruct or authorize my lawyers to hire any private investigator on my behalf for such a purpose. And I never would.

Although we are all tough opponents on the pitch, we are a part of this organization because we love football, our teams and our fans. Having the privilege of owning a franchise in sports America is something I know none of us take lightly. Lies and lies spread about any of our organizations harm our League, our players and our fans and we cannot leave them unchallenged.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions, Tanya and I are always ready to answer them and look forward to discussing them with you at the appropriate time.

Sincerely,

Dan Snyder

while there is reportedly While there are multiple teams that want Snyder to own it, Irsay was the first to say so publicly.

When asked if Snyder was a topic of conversation at these meetings, Irsay said, “I think we’re going to have more discussion about that.” “You know, it’s a difficult situation. I believe there is some value in sacking him as the owner[of the Commanders]. I think it’s something we need to review, we need to look at all the evidence and be thorough to move forward. But I think it’s something that needs serious consideration.”

“Once we identify the evidence and move forward, we will need to determine what the situation is. … I think the owners will come to the right conclusion when they talk among themselves. Unfortunately, I believe that this is the way we should probably go and we just need to finish the investigation. way of interest.”

Following Irsay’s comments, a Commanders spokesperson released it. Declaration:

“Mr Irsay’s choice to make public statements based on media lies is highly inappropriate, but not surprising. It is unfortunate that Mr. Irsay decided to make his statement public today pending an investigation. The team has not had the opportunity to formally respond to the allegations. They’ve made remarkable progress over the years. We’re confident that when he has the opportunity to see the real evidence in this case, Mr. Irsay will come to the conclusion that Snyders has no reason to consider selling the franchise, and they won’t.”

While tensions seem high, don’t expect anything drastic to come out of this week. Goodell said Tuesday that Snyder’s ownership should not be discussed until agreement is reached. Investigation conducted by Mary Jo White Completed, According to NBC Sports Washington.
