If you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about

The Commies would do well to remember how the Nassar "investigation" went - if they just keep their heads down and say nothing, it would all just blow over because the government isn't going to do shiat against them if they don't have to.

As a 1970's DC native it's sickening to me what this asshole snyder has done to a once-proud franchise. First he craps all over the entire football world in DC with his jerk-store management of mediocrity, and turns what used to be a happy, goofy fan-inclusive sports world into a for-profit sh*t machine, then acts like a total dick about the Redskins name and ends up with a dumbass name like "Commanders". I hope they tear his f*cking skin off.

Not defending the WFT or its management, but why should Congress be investigating them?  Aren't there a million better things for them to be spending their time and our money on?

They can do more than one thing

attorneys claimed that the investigation has been "a politically inspired hatchet job" designed to take down team owner Dan Snyder.

Just Shut.  The f*ck. Up.

But why? There are state/muni/fed laws that cover all manner of sexual harassment. Congress has no reason to be involved in this. It's grandstanding, period. Let the court system handle it.

This.  If it was an investigation into the NFL there would be a bigger reason (though still not enough) for Congress to get involved.  This is purely done to make them look good

He should have the team taken away from him for the milquetoast name that has nothing to do with anything.

Because major sports leagues' anti-trust exemptions exist only because Congress lets them?

And that's fine...if Congress wants to look into that, let them.

But a sexual harassment claim shouldn't be a part of that inquiry. If they're going to look at all the team peccadillos, are we going to include the various players' run ins with the law? Just in the last year, there are 30-something current/active players with criminal legal cases pending against them. As long as we're just throwing shiat against a wall, let's lump those into the anti-trust case as well and see what sticks.

I don't understand the problem.  I think Snyder has been a great owner for Washington and I hope he owns the team for many more years.

Should have gone with the DC Dolts.

This isn't about the sports league.  This is about an individual team.

This isn't about the sports league.  This is about an individual team.


And when the league refuses to do anything about an individual team doing things like abusing employees and human trafficking, it's suddenly a league and a Congressional problem.

Well it is certainly surprising that a man that always ends up on worst owners in sports lists is getting investigated.
