No, not that Washington. The NFL team formally known as the Washington Redskins. There's some crazy rumblings that I'm guessing will be released soon that, if true, will probably be the end for Snyder. No way he doesn't know that stuff is going on.

I hope none of it is true, but it would fit right in with the sh!t show that is 2020 (year I know this would have been down before 2020).

If the rumors are true it'll make Richardson look like a saint.

What interesting timing. First the racist name is being retired & changed. I wonder if the bombshell is timed at this point in time to force the sale of the team to a more progressively minded group of owners? Jeff Bezos, The Squad, Oprah, BET . . . . . . . . . .

BET is owner by CBS. CBS tried owning a sports team once, the Yankees, didn’t go well.

"Last weekend, The Washington Post detailed these accusations to the team, and they found out that three employees were involved in these inappropriate behaviors, the newspaper reported. Washington's longtime radio voice Larry Michael, who retired abruptly on Wednesday, and team director of pro personnel Alex Santos who was recently fired were two names mentioned in the allegations Thursday.

None of the 15 women accused Snyder or former team president Bruce Allen of inappropriate behavior, according to the newspaper. However, the women believed that they must have known that these behaviors were happening."





These are not the scalps you are looking for...…

I'm pretty sure there's more that will be released in the coming days/weeks. Wink smiley But no way does Snyder not know about what's been just released.

For the record, I have no connections what so ever to Washington, expect for some coaches and players that came from the Carolina Panthers. I think Rivera will be good for them. He was just to hardheaded in Carolina.

So, the on-air AM radio talent and some "pro personnel"-level guy might have pulled a Bill Clinton or five, and you're convicting the owner of the team for guilt by association?


"The duty for every pro personnel department is to create and manage a database of every player in the NFL, every signable player without a team, and a number of players from lower-level or international leagues."


Not exactly Mahogany Row members here, John.

The riots are dying down due to lack of interest.
People are tired of the continuous flu "breaking news" and conflicting information.
This has legs in the current media doldrums. Actual investigative journalism leaked out little by little to practice their spin on it.
No doubt, Dan Snyder is their target.

He's obviously John's target too, hence my (*Gasp*) post count.



BREAKING NEWS UPDATE:

Snyder issued a statement addressing a Washington Post story that detailed allegations of unwelcomed overtures, comments of a sexual nature and exhortations to wear revealing clothing and flirt with clients to close sales deals.

Only one employee spoke on the record while 14 others were bound by non-disclosure agreements that the team refused to release them from.

Dan Snyder



While definitely piggish behavior, these accusations sure don't rise to the full Bill Clinton-level "disturbing" by a long shot....

So SU, do you have multiple tin foil hats or do you just wear the one all the time? Everything has to be a ulterior motive or conspiracy with you.

I'm also happy to see your wing man chime in... Big grin

More info to come out, I bet.

Attacking the messenger, John? Pretty lame but that's your tactic if someone disagrees with you. Then when you get a little biss slap back you call out the posse to flag it down for insulting you.

Narcissist Disorder:

Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others.
Narcissists feel threatened whenever they encounter someone who appears to have something they lack—especially those who are confident and popular. They’re also threatened by people who don’t kowtow to them or who challenge them in any way. Their defense mechanism is contempt. The only way to neutralize the threat and prop up their own sagging ego is to put those people down. They may do it in a patronizing or dismissive way as if to demonstrate how little the other person means to them. Or they may go on the attack with insults, name-calling, bullying, and threats to force the other person back into line.

Your words belie your intent, John, in both the OP:

No, not that Washington. The NFL team formally known as the Washington Redskins.

There's some crazy rumblings that I'm guessing will be released soon that, if true, will probably be the end for Snyder. No way he doesn't know that stuff is going on.

And later here:

J4yDubs


No mention in any of your post of the victims, nor any empathy for them, only references to the assumed guilt of Snyder.

I even gave you the names of two low-level accused perps, and not a peep out of you about them.
