Report: Dan Snyder claims to have ‘dirt’ that could ‘blow up' NFL as heat on his scandal-laden team ownership rises

Oct 13, 2022

If you’ve been wondering why Daniel Snyder is still team owner of the Washington Commanders after years of scandal, allegations and investigations by everyone from Congress to the NFL, a new ESPN report seems to have the answer:

Mutually assured destruction.

ESPN's Don Van Natta Jr., Seth Wickersham and Tisha Thompson reported that Snyder told an associate he has enough secrets to "blow up" several NFL team owners, as well as the league office and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, a notion reiterated in the story by former Commanders executives and other anonymous sources.

Tensions among league franchise owners could keep Snyder in charge, or at least allow him to bring the house down with him.
