Dan and Tanya Snyder, current owners of the Washington Commanders, announced on November 2 that they had hired Bank of America Securities for the purpose of a possible sale of the team.

However, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated in the framework of the league’s December meetings that he has no “expectations” regarding the possible change of ownership.

“(Snyder) released a statement indicating that he was exploring the sale. We will continue to work with him on it,” Goodell said.

According to the Committee on Oversight and Reform of the United States House of Representatives, Dan Snyder was an important part of creating a toxic work culture within the Commanders’ facilities. When questioned about it, the commissioner said the league has fully cooperated with the Committee’s investigation.

“We fully cooperated, I think we delivered over half a million documents and I gave a two and a half hour testimony. Someone told me there were 120 questions during that time," Goodell said.

The league is still conducting an investigation headed up by former US attorney Mary Jo-White, and the NFL boss said that there is no deadline for him to issue a penalty for toxic workplace conduct.

Jim Irsay wants more information

Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts, was one of the NFL's main partners in seeking the removal of Dan Snyder, but it appears he has now thought things through more calmly, saying he isn't ready to make a decision. .

I’m not ready to vote him out,” Irsay told ESPN. “I need to hear more of my partners talk. It’s been something where you want to get more information about everything is the key.”
