Just because you sell the team Danny boy doesn't mean you're clear from the feds.

Citing emails and the testimony of Jason Friedman, a longtime vice president of sales and customer service, the letter said ticket sales from Washington games were shifted to a 2013 Kenny Chesney concert and a 2014 Navy-Notre Dame college football game as a way to "juice" revenue and keep it off the books shared with the NFL.

Is Roger Goodell gonna have to choke a biatch?

At one point in 2016, the team retained up to $5 million from 2,000 season-ticket holders while also concealing sharable revenue from the league, according to the committee.

They stole money from billionaires.  You can't get away with that in the US.

I don't think GoodellBot has a *choke a biatch* feature:

He's getting the Haslam treatment.   Good.  I don't care one way or the other about DC, but it is painful to see bad ownership wreck a club.   Yeah, Browns fan here.

That seems like some petty shiat when you've already got an easy money maker like an NFL team. Like it wouldn't even move the dial very much on the legit profits.

Rich assholes like Snyder get rich by being assholes. He'd steal a penny from a homeless kid if he though he'd get away with it.

Stud Gerbil: He's getting the Haslam treatment.   Good.  I don't care one way or the other about DC, but it is painful to see bad ownership wreck a club.   Yeah, Browns fan here.


It's funny but one of his very first moves as the owner told me how bad this was going to be, and he has not disappointed.   He overpaid to bring an  aging and disinterest Deion Sanders to Dc from our hated rivals the cowboys, and to make room for him, they cut one of the most beloved  players on the team, the then NFL-record holder for punt return AND kickoff return touchdowns (and the leading tackler on punts and kickoffs going the other way)  Brian Mitchell.   Worse yet, when people criticized the move he started a smear campaign in the media alleging that somehow Mitchell was a "bad influence" in the locker room.

In the end Sanders had ONE decent return for TD to win an overtime game (and was pretty much useless as a cornerback on a team that already has Darrell Green and Champ Bailey) before quitting football for baseball  because Shottenheimer made him work too hard in training camp  and took a $10 million payday with him

Meanwhile Mitchell playing up the road in Philly  and is still thier all time leader in punt returns despite only playing for 3 season and had 350 all-purpose yard in a single game for them

That's next-level evil compared to Haslam, who only wanted to launder money from his truck stop empire.  Haslam, a lifelong Steeler fan, just wanted to join the big boys club.   The team is still in his family, which doesn't help.   Snyder sounds like something a lot worse.

Don't forget one of his other first-moves:  charging fans to attend practice.

Despite being a long-time fan (allegedly) he came in thinking that this was strictly his ego-stroke, piggy bank.

Snyder is farked. Given that some of the allegations are from 2016, Dan was still in charge of the team. It's all on him. He can't just blame his wife who he "yielded control to" back when the government investigation started. I said it in the first thread on Snyder selling the team, the writing was on the wall when it came out he stole from the other NFL teams. The rest of the NFL team owners turn a blind eye towards all scandals unless it affects their revenue. This just happens to directly affect their revenue so it instantly brings out the knives.

Having made the mistake of reading Yahoo comments on their version of this story, I discovered Snyder does appear to have a certain number of contrarian MAGAT fans expressing their ongoing support.

Of all the things he's done, getting brought down by screwing over the other owners being his downfall seems kind of hilarious. Like Capone falling victim to tax evasion.
