Something has to be done with the Washington Commanders.
Team owner Dan Snyder deserves to go because he condones an unsafe working environment.
In an ongoing investigation, the House Oversight Committee had some disturbing findings.
One of which is Snyder telling a public relations employee to just stay away from the member of the coaching staff who groped her.
The team also reportedly glorified womanizing and excessive drinking and anyone who spoke against it was at risk of losing their jobs.
Two female employees were also fired for consensual relations with members of the football operations team.
However, the male employees got it off easy.
It’s situations like these that prompted NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to call out the team’s front office while testifying in front of Congress on Wednesday.
Roger Goodell on Commanders workplace culture: "not only unprofessional but also toxic for far too long"
— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) June 22, 2022
NBC Sports’ JP Finlay shared Goodell’s quote that the Commanders workplace culture is “not only unprofessional but also toxic for far too long.”
This statement is Goodell’s call for the other owners to do something about it.
Goodell can only do so much and has no power to boot out an owner.
Therefore, he is making a plea that Snyder has lost his credibility to own an NFL franchise.
Will the owners respond, though?
They might if the clamor from the public gets louder.
Snyder’s Situation Similar To Jerry Richardson
Richardson was a former football player who eventually became the CEO of a large food service company in America.
He was eventually awarded the NFL’s 29th franchise which he decided to put in Carolina.
However, he was forced to sell the team after reports of monetary settlements due to inappropriate workplace comments surfaced.
If those settlements became Richardson’s downfall in the NFL, Snyder’s stern attitude of maintaining that their workplace is safe will lead to his ouster.
