    Based on all accounts I’ve seen, this is gonna be a bad bad bad look for them. Most connections believe it will be involved with things deeply rooted into things like sexual assault and other types of scandals within the organization’s culture. (Like Jerry Richardson situation only much worse)

    Hey if nothing else it makes our quote “scandals” suddenly look very very small.

    Didn’t we just lose a 3rd rounder a couple weeks ago? I’ve already almost forgotten about the whole thing.

    Something happened in Washington this last week that went completely under the radar with all the attention on the name: the director of pro personnel and asst. director were both fired. Very strange for such a move to be made in early July. Twitter rumors were it “wasn’t football related.”

    I didn’t see anyone talking about it so I never gave an opinion, but maybe this has to do with that.

    This is going to be national news the way it is being hyped up. Seemingly involves a lot of sexual abuse.

    We'll see what happens with Washington, but doesn't it seem like the Richardson situation was largely downplayed? It seemed like his departure from Carolina ownership was very similar to Donald Sterling's ouster from the Clippers, except all of Sterling's transgressions were aired publicly. I don't remember Richardson getting the same attention.

    Quite honestly, other than finding out personnel were betting against their own team, that’s really the only thing I can think this may be. Some sort of sexual malfeasance, be it harassment, assault, affairs, quid pro quo, etc. I read several rumors out there and some are pretty serious. I’ll guess we will find out tomorrow what’s going on.

    The rumors I see the most involve Jay Gruden. Some feel this may lead to Snyder being ousted.

    Oh my God!!! Humans doing sexually taboo interactions with each other!! THIS MUST BE STAMPED OUT!!! I insist that from now on only 26 gender neutral LGBTQ endorsed owners be allowed to own NFL football teams!

    Harrison Weinhold has a long Twitter thread about Washington's sports media and how the Redskins would sweep stuff under the rug.

    This part is, uh, interesting.

    Weird story of two minority owners wanting out seems a bit more « interesting » all of a sudden. I figured they had just grown (beyond) tired of Snyder and wanted to cut their losses.

    Easily one of the worst run franchises in sports.

    Sterling had a tape. Also it was in the NBA and players have more power and were outright refusing to play for or against Sterlings team, which forced the sake. Richardson had no intentions of owning the Panthers forever so he just left right away

    Snyder is just an awful human being, so he makes a lot of enemies, and doesn't create allies except those he can buy. He's one of those people that, when you meet him, you want to go take a shower. The entire region will breathe a sigh of relief if he's forced to sell the team.

    And it won't be surprising that there's a ton of criminal and/or predatory behavior in that organization, given his values.

    I think it's hilarious this allegedly involves the Gruden party vid.
