According to a 130+ page investigative report conducted by the NFL into the Washington Football Team franchise that was "leaked" to someone in the media, the league is going to recommend that owner Dan Snyder sell the team.

And according to that source who obtained the documents, the NFL would "suspend the owner for a significant period to allow time to repair its infrastructure and culture."

Although the report makes some surprising claims, an NFL spokesperson has called the claims "absolutely false. We have received no such report."

Since acquiring the team in 1999, Snyder has faced years of scrutiny regarding his handling of the teams operations. The team has endured many losing seasons and cycled through eight head coaches in 17 seasons. The former name of the team was also heavily criticized. In July 2020, over 40 women who were former employees of the football organization came forward to The Washington Post to accuse either Snyder or other male executives, colleagues, and players of sexual harassment or discrimination. The organization also reportedly paid a former female employee a sum of $1.6 million to settle a sexual harassment claim involving Snyder.

Who should theoretically be the next owner of the franchise, should the report turn out to be true? Amazon mastermind Jeff Bezos has been rumored as being interested in taking ownership of the team recently.
