Commanders fans carry paper bags saying ‘Sell the team’ amid owner Dan Snyder’s NFL drama

As owner Dan Snyder continues to be surrounded by drama, some Washington Commanders fans are calling him out for selling the team while wearing a brown paper bag over his head Thursday night in Chicago.

The Commanders will be on national television against the Chicago Bears, so there’s no better time for fans to show what they think of the property with plenty of spectators.

A Commanders Beat reporter posted a photo of two fans at Soldier Field wearing paper bags over their faces that read “SELL THE TEAM”.

This fan show comes hours later after an ESPN report revealed that the other 31 owners feared Snyder because he had information that would “blow up” several other NFL owners.

The report also said Snyder had dirt on the desk of the league and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and he told a close associate that “they can’t fuck with me.”

Snyder also told another associate that “the NFL is a mafia” and that “every other owner hates each other.” However, another owner told ESPN that “every owner hates Dan.”

The report also said Snyder had hired private investigators to dig up “dirt” on team owners, including Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones.

Snyder has come under fire for several years with allegations of a toxic work environment among commanders. The league fined him $10 million, and co-CEO Tanya Snyder was told to focus on team matters while Snyder dealt with other issues.

This came after a thorough investigation within the organization, although the report has not been made public. Some were surprised that Snyder wasn’t forced to sell the team, but this report could be the reason.

For those fans to have their demands met, at least 24 owners will need to vote in favor of forcing Snyder to sell the team.

Snyder’s attorneys applauded the report, saying “it’s categorically false” and that “it has no compiled ‘records’ on the owners.”

“It’s hard to imagine a piece that is more categorically false and clearly part of a well-funded two-year disinformation campaign to coerce the sale of the team, which will continue to fail,” a doorman said. -Commanders’ word to Fox News. Digital.

The issues surrounding Snyder and the commanders went all the way to DC and were submitted to the House Oversight and Reform Committee. The lawmakers’ investigation found Snyder played a significant role in promoting a toxic work environment and uncovered evidence suggesting Snyder obstructed the NFL’s independent investigation into those allegations.

He declined to testify at a House hearing in June, although Goodell did. Goodell noted that while the culture in the Washington workplace was toxic, changes were made there that affected the entire NFL.

With that display on the road, the COs are set to take on the Green Bay Packers at FedEx Field on Oct. 23 in Washington, where more could be seen.
