The NFL world has to deal with yet another shocking situation involving Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder.
He has been embroiled in allegations of sexual harassment that have been shared in front of Congress.
The NFL investigated these, but Snyder himself has to agree to have the findings be released.
That has him reportedly conducting his own investigation that he deems to be an independent one.
Commanders owner Dan Snyder is hiring an independent investigative team, led by former Asst. U.S. Attorneys Bonnie Jonas and Tiffany Moller of Pallas Global Group LLC, to look into allegations made last week by Tiffani Johnston during her time with the team, per a team official.

The fact Snyder is hiring his own investigators has the NFL world reacting in a predictable way.
Hiring someone to investigate himself… bet they don’t find anything LMAO
Dan Snyder is a joke https://t.co/88cpqySK5c

NFL World Reacts To Snyder’s Investigation
It is shocking to even read that Snyder is legitimately hiring investigators to look into something he did.
Naturally, fans are not expecting any revealing findings.
I’m sure this will be completely independent and not biased in favor of Dan Snyder at all. Worst. Owner. In. Sports. https://t.co/2Isi2ea41K

You lost me at "Dan Snyder is hiring" because the freaking accused individual in a case shouldn't be hiring *anybody* to conduct investigations anywhere at any time. There's nothing independent about that.
Watch when nothing comes of this and wonder why that might be… https://t.co/mS7KBXvr8R

When it comes to the latest mini-scandal involving the @Commanders and Dan Snyder, who the heck finds credibility in an investigation in which the guy who's being investigated hires and pays the investigators.

The NFL is an industry where team owners have a hard time ever facing serious repercussions for their actions.
Snyder is no different and it is highly unlikely he is forced to sell the team because of fan pressure.
That is just not the way the NFL operates.

Everyone who isn’t Snyder himself seems to have the same exact reaction to this news.
This is a terrible look for him and the entire NFL and it’s shocking no one is making this clear to him.
Or maybe they have, and he still thinks he can buy his own investigation to solve the problem.
His public perception is not going to change anytime soon and a simple Twitter search of his name proves no one is in his corner.
In 2 months Dan Snyder will be hiring an independent investigator to investigate the independent investigator that said he’s a bad guy

If the NFL is not allowed to release its own investigation, that alone tells a big story.
Now fans are eagerly awaiting to see if the prediction is true and that the owner’s investigation will suddenly show he did nothing wrong.
