Peter King was talking about the mess going on in Washington DC with the Commanders and it is pretty wild. On Saturday night, A.J. Perez of Front Office Sports reported that the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which is investigating allegations of sexual and financial misdeeds in the Washington front office, has been informed by one source that the team did not give the full share of ticket revenue to visiting teams, as required by NFL bylaws.
If this is true, the NFL has to make Snyder sell the team. The Commanders have been the eye sore of the NFL for the past several years with investigations on top of investigations.
“According to NFL bylaws, all teams are required to pass along 40% of ticket sales from each home game — minus ticket handling charges and taxes — to the league, which then disperses the funds to visiting teams,” writes Front Office Sports. “At least one person gave information in recent weeks to Congressional investigators that alleges the Commanders didn’t pass along the full 40%, two sources with knowledge of the investigation told FOS.”
Will the NFL owners continue to protect him? That is the question, they stand behind him for all his allegations but will this ultimately push him over the edge. Being that he would be stealing from the other 31 owners they may change their minds.
