Washington Commanders Team owner Dan Snyder doesn’t have a choice.

With a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee, he has no choice but to comply.

This is his best shot at brushing off allegations about the unsafe working environment his organization operates in.

Not that he will be acquitted of all charges, but he has an opportunity to explain.

However, it doesn’t bode well for Snyder when an ongoing investigation revealed that he asked a public relations employee to stay away from a member of the coaching staff who groped him.

The team also promotes feminization and excessive drinking and anyone who dares to speak out against it can lose their job.

Depending on the outcome of the investigation, commanders may face harsh sanctions.

But it is not certain whether the House has the authority to kick Snyder out of the league.

The NFL may pressure Snyder to relinquish control of its franchise.

However, this is not within the powers of Commissioner Roger Goodella.

When asked whether he would remove Snyder as one of the owners of the NFL, Goodell said he did not have the authority to do so.

Yes, Goodell has the power to punish players and coaches.

Unfortunately, they don’t have the mandate to remove one of the people they work.

Only the owner can remove Snyder

Other team owners may facilitate the ouster of Snyder if they feel his actions are detrimental to the league.

They can take votes and follow the orders of the majority.

If they decide that Snyder must go, he cannot appeal the decision as the most powerful men in the NFL have decided.

In just a few days, they can find a potential buyer for the commanders if they want it to happen.

However, do the owners care enough about Snyder’s fate as long as the dollars keep coming?
