We already know that Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder is one of them the most obnoxious characters in the NFL. Well, after a new investigation report We know from ESPN that most of Snyder’s other team owners also find him disgusting — perhaps partly because he claims to have secrets about all of them that could ruin their careers and lives.

Snyder and the culture he enabled in Commanders have been in hot water ever since Washington Post report numerous allegations of systemic sexual harassment uncovered and several incidents of misconduct, including some former cheerleaders who said executives made videos of them, partially debunked, made inappropriate comments about them, and asked them to flirt with suiteholders. After Congress began investigating the team’s culture and the NFL’s handling of the allegations, Snyder refused to testify and disappeared — until he was eventually tracked down aboard his mega-yacht, the 305-foot Lady S, whose charter was 1 Costing $.4 million a week with a crew of 33, it was docked off the French coast near Cannes.

ESPN reported Tuesday that sources close to Snyder say this behavior is common when he’s feeling cornered:

He paces in a hotel suite, on his superyacht, or in River View, his $48 million Virginia estate. Holding a drink, he tells his inner circle about the dirt he’s gotten on co-owners, coaches, executives and even his own employees – all the stuff he’s learned from other sources, including private investigative firms . He never says exactly what he knows, only that he knows a lot in his 23 years as a Washington Commanders owner. And that’s how you survive in the zero-sum world of billionaires. Snyder recently told a close associate that he’s amassed enough secrets to blow up several NFL owners, the league office and even Commissioner Roger Goodell.

“The NFL is a mafia,” Snyder recently told a staffer, according to ESPN. “All owners hate each other.”

“That’s not true,” replied an experienced owner. “All owners hate Dan.”

Snyder is convinced neither the NFL nor its owners can “screw” him, say sources the embattled businessman has told them privately. Now that the tide has turned against Snyder in his two-year saga to overcome allegations of sexual assault, Snyder has reportedly told his staff he won’t go down without a fight that would end “with multiple casualties.” When those close to Snyder questioned why he wouldn’t just sell the team, take the multi-billion dollar fortune from a hypothetical sale and walk away, the answer comes down to the fact that Snyder is literally stubborn. “It’s his identity,” a source told ESPN. Not only is Snyder not ashamed, the source said, “he just doesn’t care that he’s hated. In fact, he revels in it.”

The long read ultimately paints a picture of a man who “seems to have no true friends” who was deemed “arrogant” by a seasoned owner. obnoxious. Distant. “Selfish” and, according to former Washington executives, a lonely man who really, really hates The Washington Post.

Snyder reportedly told an owner directly that he “don’t give a damn on Jerry Jones,” the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, while another source confirmed that Snyder said he had “a file” on Jones. Others allege that Snyder hired or authorized private investigators to keep tabs on another team’s owner and league office executives, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. (A spokesman for the Commander and Snyder’s attorneys denied those claims.) “He’s acting like a rabid dog that’s cornered,” a source said.

“That’s what happens when you do business with bad people,” another co-owner told ESPN of Snyder. “They know he’s going to burn down their houses.”

One of the executives who spoke to ESPN added that the main reason the owners had turned against Snyder was not over the sexual misconduct allegations, but because of his “poor financial performance.” Team owners are willing to look the other way at Jones’ alleged wrongdoing, including the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Voyeurism Scandal and a lawsuit from a 25-year-old woman who says Jones is her father because his “vision to grow the NFL pie has made rich men richer.” One owner acknowledged that the toxic working environment at the commanders was “not good looks for the league” but showed no sympathy for the women who were harassed.

In other words, it’s easy Another day in the NFLwhere profits are always more important than people and their safety. NFL owner Dan Snyder says he has enough dirt on other men to blow up the entire league
