Daniel Snyder is pretty much radioactive at this point.
At what point does National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell tell the 30 franchise owners and the Green Bay Packers board of directors that it might be time to push Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder out of the league? The NFL could force him to sell his business to an owner who won’t put dent after dent in the NFL Shield. Snyder is looking for a new radio station to broadcast his games and it might not be such a difficult task to line up a new station, but he also needs to find a major sponsor to replace a beer company. who decided she didn’t want to be associated with the team. Anheuser-Busch has given no reason to pull out of its partnership with Commanders, but the brewery is the third marketing partner to sever its relationship with Snyder’s business in the past 11 months. The brewery, however, issued a bizarre statement to the Washington, DC market and Commanders followers. “We remain fully committed to Washington football fans, and look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with the NFL and our 26 other partner teams to create meaningful experiences and connections for fans across the country.”
Meanwhile, Audacy radio was somewhat vague about withdrawing from its partnership. Money and editorial commentary were part of the decision to part ways. The two parties “didn’t agree on the value of the shows (and) that’s also very important to us (Audacy) as a sports talk station, indeed as a longtime flagship station of the team, it was important for us to continue to be able to provide honest and unbiased information and analysis about (commanders) on our talk shows. Snyder’s company was fined $10 million by the league for what appears to be sexual harassment in the workplace, but the league never released the findings of its investigation.
