I wonder (and I am sure Dan Snyder could tell me) how big of a dick you have to be, to be universally reviled in a tri-city and state area, be told to F off for a new stadium, treat your female employees worse than redneck drunks at a hooters, lie cheat and steal from other owners and your fanbase, and still be like... "I am not sure I want to sell the team for billions of dollars."

I mean, you piss off your fanbase, your fellow owners AND the local government.

There has to be a special category for that level of stupid and arrogant.

I join all sensible people in my detestation of Dan Snyder and all that he stands for.

Without actually reading the Complaint, however, I am confused at the cause of action here - the idea that DC area consumers needed to be told the truth about the team's toxic front office environment and that the team (and NFL efforts) to obstruct the investigation defrauded ticket buyers?  How many fans really bought tickets because they thought Dan Snyder was running a moral, law-abiding organization?  I assume that DC fans bought tickets despite the ownership and/or did not care about anything but the product on the field (which also was subpar).

I'm much more interested in the investigation of financial improprieties and any related criminal charges.

This has zero chance of going anywhere and probably won't survive its first motion to dismiss. DC has no jurisdiction simply because fans of the team may reside in the district. What an absolute crock.

The advertising sponsors probably want to know if they're plastering their name and logo all over a toxic frat corporation.

The Commanders went all "why you coming after us when one of our players got shot? Focus on real crime." Then the player said not to use him as a pawn.

So the Commanders apologized... to the cops.

That category is called the Snyder category.

True enough, although any advertiser willing to link their name to the prior team name and Dan Snyder probably was not concerned about their long-term reputation.

No. Dan Snyder is a stain on the NFL and should be forced to sell his team as several owners have suggested. This is a frivolous lawsuit, with no legal basis, by an outgoing DA who is pandering and getting his name in the paper for future employment.

There is absolutely no standing or jurisdiction for this lawsuit, at all, not have they made any actionable claims in the lawsuit to show where anyone who MIGHT have standing suffered any actual harm.

Being a fan of the team living in DC does not mean that the elected DA gets to just bring a lawsuit on your behalf.

There is no cause of action, at all, period.

If this were to be allowed to become precedent you'd have DAs suing a franchise for "fraud" because the owner said he was committed to his coach, quarterback, starting pitcher, or whatever and firing or trading that person midseason.
