Washington Football Team Owner Dan Snyder’s latest blip is just another chapter in a long book of sketchy behavior. However, Snyder says that a large part of the smoke around him is due to team’s minority owner, Dwight Schar, extorting him with hopes that he’ll sell the team.
Snyder claims that Schar has been leaking information of sexual misconduct claims made by former Washington employees. Snyder goes on to say that Schar continues to leak misinformation knowing very well that an investigation found that he was guilty of no wrongdoing.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Snyder claims that Schar told his attorney that he has information that would “kill Dan”, and that he would be releasing that information if Snyder didn’t just “sell the team.
As Snyder says in the docs, “I am fighting on multiple fronts for interests that go beyond just me, including for the Team that I love, as well as my family, and can swear to this Court that the accusations I improperly leaked information to the press are false.”
Dan Snyder coming out and accusing his minority owners of coming after him goes to show what a complete mess the Washington organization is right now. Even on the field, they can’t get their players to stay out of the strip club during a pandemic. However, Washington remains right in the thick of things in the NFC East race despite all the noise surrounding them.
I don’t expect Dan Snyder to ‘just sell the team’ anytime soon.
