Even with so much controversy surrounding the Washington commanders, it’s possible that team owner Dan Snyder could keep his job.
Negotiating for Carson Wentz is nothing compared to Washington’s deeper issues.
There are allegations of sexual misconduct involving female team officials.
Likewise, there have also been allegations of financial irregularities against team owner Snyder.
This matter is also being investigated by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
In their defense, the team was unaware of the ongoing financial investigation that stemmed from the documents and interviews regarding the investigation into the team’s working conditions.
For now, Snyder can save face as no decision has been made.
But even before the verdict is in, a group of people can lead his ouster, as Sports Illustrated Andrew Brandt shared.
Goodell will protect Dan Snyder for as long as he can – it’s part of his job – but he can’t protect him from other owners.
Goodell’s job is to build and act on consensus; if the consensus among his constituency (all owners) is that Snyder is bad for business, he will move on.

This is at the discretion of the owners
As always, NFL owners are looking out for their best interests.
They don’t care less about problems as long as the money is flowing.
But Snyder’s current situation could prove to be a heavy burden as there could be a witch hunt afterwards.
If the investigation proves the alleged sexual misconduct and financial impropriety, all teams will suddenly be put on public trial.
Therefore, they can protect their interests as soon as possible by ousting Snyder.
The owners can let him deal with his legal issues but not as a Washington owner.
This approach will help them save face as Goodell does not hold the power above the owners.
