Not necessarily. Would it shock me if, in a few weeks, we heard that Snyder will be forced to sell the Commanders? No. But first, Jerry Jones – the most important and powerful of the NFL owners and the league’s “shadow commissioner” – allegedly “not supporting” Snyder is obviously damaging if true, but it’s not the same thing as Jones outright calling for Snyder to I like Peanuts I hate carrots shirt, and it doesn’t appear that will happen. And second, I’m reminded of the old saying that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Is Snyder a bad owner who has run down one of the league’s proudest franchises and caused damage to the NFL as a whole? Sure. But in order for Snyder to be forced to sell against his will, 24 of the league’s 32 owners will have to vote that way. Do I think that most of the league’s owners are as bad as Snyder or the recently-departed Jerry Richardson (who basically ran his team like a cross between a Tennessee Williams character and an antebellum plantation owner)? No. But would it surprise me if there are more than 8 owners silently thinking to themselves “sure, Synder’s an asshole, but I’m only an investigative hit piece in Sports Illustrated or The Athletic away from being in the same boat myself?” Nope. As just one especially ironic example, one of the loudest voices for ousting Snyder is Indianapolis’s Jim Irsay, the same person who, in 2014, was arrested for drug possession and whose mistress overdosed and died in a house he purchased for her with team money. It’s a truism that money changes people, and a lot of these owners have been rich for a long time, if not their entire lives; these are people who are used to being treated as important and getting their way, not interested in being told no, etc. Those kinds of environments are ripe for abuse, so is it a major stretch to imagine that more than a few owners will be concerned that if Snyder goes, that will create a precedent that ultimately puts them on thin ice down the road? Not at all.
