Despite it seeming like the football world has been talking about Dan Snyder forever, there have still been some wild reports popping up about him recently.

It was reported last week that Snyder was trying to dig up dirt on owners around the NFL and on Roger Goodell.

Today, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay gave his thoughts on the rumors.

He also added in that he thinks that removing Snyder is a road the league may need to go down.

Now a Washington Commanders spokesperson has responded to Irsay’s comments.

Washington Commanders respond to Jim Irsay’s comments about Dan Snyder

It is highly inappropriate, but not surprising, that Mr. Irsay opted to make statements publicly based on falsehoods in the media. It is unfortunate that Mr. Irsay decided to go public with his statement today, while an investigation is in process, and the team has had no opportunity to formally respond to allegations. The Commanders have made remarkable progress over the past two years. We are confident that, when he has an opportunity to see the actual evidence in his case, Mr. Irsay will conclude that there is no reason for the Snyders to consider selling the franchise. And they won’t.

With Dan Snyder clearly uninterested in selling the team, the league would need a lot more than just Jim Irsay’s support to remove Snyder. They would need 75% of the owners to vote in favor of Snyder’s removal.
