As a reprimand for Snyder’s previous reported misbehavior and misconduct, it seems that Irsay believes the $10 million tremendous issued earlier by the league in July of 2021 was a mere slap on the wrist for the Commanders’ controversial billionaire proprietor—and that his friends, the NFL’s fellow homeowners, weren’t correctly consulted within the league’s punishment course of.
Going through quite a few allegations concerning sexual harassment, misconduct, and different misbehavior within the midst of presidency investigations, Snyder’s working of the Commanders franchise—each up to now and current, continues to be a stain on the defend.
