The Commanders sales process begins

Commander sales process begins

DAY

Washington Commanders owners Dan and Tanya Snyder have officially begun the process of selling the NFL team. 

“Dan and Tanya Snyder and the Washington Commanders organization announce today [Wednesday] that they have hired Bank of America Securities to assess the possibility of a transaction,” reads a very brief statement released by the club.

The owners, especially Dan Snyder, have been in turmoil for quite a while now. Years of misconduct by some team leaders in the workplace, along with some financial irregularities, have put the 57-year-old in the spotlight for the wrong reasons.

In recent months, the NFL also held an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment involving Dan Snyder and fined the Washington club $10 million. The owner had also been forced to cede the day-to-day operations of the team to his wife indefinitely.

Last June, The Washington Post newspaper learned that Dan Snyder had paid $1.6 million to a woman who accused him in 2009 of sexual harassment. The lady alleged that the multi-millionaire tried to force her to have sex and tried to take her clothes off in a private part of the team's plane on a trip where staff were returning from Las Vegas. p>
