Dan Snyder is said to have blocked Jeff Bezos’ bid on Commanders
It looks like Daniel Snyder’s disdain for Jeff Bezos will stop the Amazon founder from buying Washington Commanders. Bezos is allegedly prevented from participating in the private auction for Snyder’s NFL franchise by a age-old grudge. (Bezos and Snyder did not return calls from New York Post Office for comment.)
It’s obvious why Snyder there will be beef with Bezos, who owns Washington Post. The article has run some expose that thing accused Snyder of triggering sexual harassment.
According to WaPo:
“The allegations made… — spanning from 2006 to 2019 — span most of Snyder’s time as an owner and fall into two categories: unsolicited suggestions or comments of a sexual nature and recommendations of a sexual nature. encourage revealing clothing and flirting with customers to close deals.”
Like NY Post Office written at the end of January, some believe that Snyder suspects Bezos of encouraging tough coverage to force owners to sell the team. Back in November, a source told NBC Sports’ Peter King that the sale to Bezos will never happen.
“Dan Snyder hates Washington Post. There’s no way he sold it to the owner of that newspaper,” the source said.
Bezos is interested in owning the NFL franchise
In 2019, report pointed out that Bezos has had relationships with many NFL owners, including Snyder.
As Jason La Canfora notes in his piece for CBS Sports:
“Snyder has been trying for years to build a state-of-the-art stadium downtown in DC, growing frustrated at the location and age of FedEx Field. Bezos has moved Washington Post moved to a new location after buying the newspaper, is setting up an Amazon hub in the area and some believe could assist Snyder in his pursuit of a new stadium, possibly even with Amazon sponsorship .
However, after that work was written, Snyder denies rumors of relationship with Bezosclaimed that he hadn’t seen him in a decade at the time.
After Snyder announced his interest in possibly selling the Commanders, TMZ reported that Bezos could team up with rapper Jay-Z to buy the team. There are even reports that Bezos will consider selling Washington Post to improve his chances, even though Bezos claimed The publication was never sold.
Aside from his interest in buying an NFL team, it seems that Bezos has always had an affection for the DC area and football in general. In 2022, Amazon bought the copyright Thursday Night Footballlead to record-breaking Amazon Prime subscriptions. Bezos owns a home in the DC metro area, and Amazon’s second headquarters is just across the Potomac River in Crystal City, Virginia. Even if Bezos doesn’t have a business relationship with Snyder as rumored, that doesn’t mean the two have never contacted each other.
One proud franchise for sale
Snyder may ultimately decide not to sell the Commanders because he did not receive his asking price, because NY Post Office note. The tabloid reported that the best offer Snyder received was $5.5 billion, while other publications like Forbes reported that offers went to the team “far north” worth $7 billion.
“He’s an asshole and he probably doesn’t want to give it up,” a source who closely watched the sale told the paper. NY Post Office.
Whether Snyder is forced out of the Commanders he bought for $800 million in 1999 will be decided at the owners’ annual meeting on March 26. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Other owners voted in favor of overthrowing Snyder. In October 2022, Colts owner Jim Irsay was quoted as saying there were likely 24 votes to remove Snyder as co-owner of Commanders. that is 75 percent of the tournament owner.
One possible reason Snyder remains in power has been detailed in a nearly 8,000-word article GAMES GAMES written by Don Van Natta Jr., Seth Wickersham and Tisha Thompson, published October.
Citation report Snyder recently said that he’s gathered “enough secrets to blow up some NFL owners,” with the league office and Goodell being the casualties. Snyder’s perceived contingencies are put in place to protect him from any attempt to oust him from the position of Commander’s owner.
