It looks like the top brass of the Washington Commanders is hiding skeletons in the closet.
Team owner Dan Snyder wouldn’t testify in front of the House Oversight Committee regarding the allegations of an unsafe working environment for office personnel, especially women.
That act in itself is a bad sign.
Otherwise, why avoid the opportunity to testify if there is nothing wrong going on in the background?
Worst yet, NBC Sports’ Pete Hailey shared disturbing findings from the ongoing investigation on Snyder and the Commanders.
Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney sent other Committee members a memo today that describes findings from the ongoing investigation into the Commanders and Dan Snyder. Among the key points: pic.twitter.com/QCx8xOMk9k

Some of the findings include Snyder telling a public relations employee to stay away from a member of the coaching staff who groped the victim.
Former Chief Operating Officer David Pauken also shared that Snyder fired female employees who engaged in consensual relationships with male members of football operations.
The cringe doesn’t stop there because while the female employees were fired, the male employees never got a serious reprimand.
A long-time employee also testified about the team’s adherence to womanizing and excessive drinking.
The employee added that most of his former colleagues would rather keep quiet to not lose their jobs.
There was also a shadow investigation done by the Commanders to discredit the accusers.
The Commanders Are Doomed
It won’t be long before the only course of action left is to take the franchise away from Snyder.
The other 31 team owners have the power to do so, especially if they deem Snyder’s antics unfit for the league’s image.
But the incompetencies in the front office trickle onto the team.
Trading for Carson Wentz alone indicates that they don’t have their act together.
Then, they don’t have a contract offer for Terry McLaurin yet.
Sadly, their weak executives wreck whatever chance they have to be competitive on the field.
