Daniel Snyder, the owner of the Washington Commanders, has been involved in one controversy after another, and the momentum to remove him as his team’s owner may be starting to build.
That sentiment is certainly building among fans who are sick of his antics.
One of Snyder’s most recent indiscretions was his comment that he has “dirt” on other NFL team owners, as well as commissioner Roger Goodell, and that he would direct his attorneys to hire private investigators in order to collect such information.
Snyder sent a letter to the 31 other team owners around the league in which he denied any of these rumors.

Needless to say, very few are buying Snyder’s words, and fans have had it with him.
This New York Giants fan had a very sarcastic response.
Count me amongst those very convinced by this very convincing letter by the extremely trustworthy and noble Daniel Snyder who I strongly believe would NEVER resort to underhanded business tactics to try and get ahead of friends/foes/shareholders/season ticket holders. Never. https://t.co/Y2ItVOzPHg

This fan had some harsh words for anyone who is still in Snyder’s corner.
People defending Daniel Snyder after all of this are really embarrassing themselves.

This gent wants Snyder out so that his team can bring in a better owner and start fielding better teams on the field.
30 years of failure
Investigation about sexual harassment, fraudulent sell of tickets, misogyny and misconduct
Civil lawsuits against the owner closed with deals outside the court
Racist coaches and ex coaches

Right now, the deck could be getting stacked against Snyder, especially after Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, who has had his own issues off the field, said the Commanders owner should be removed in order to protect the NFL brand.
His track record at the helm of the team greatly pales in comparison to his predecessor, Jack Kent Cooke, who brought three Super Bowl championships to our nation’s capital.
Cooke wasn’t the most lovable man either, but at least the on-the-field product was very strong and respectable during his tenure.
Long-suffering Washington fans certainly deserve better than what they’ve had to deal with since Cooke’s death in 1997, which led to Snyder purchasing the team in 1999.
