Dan Snyder Is the NFL’s Donald Trump

From a Jack Shafer Fourth Estate column on politico.com headlined “Dan Snyder Is the NFL’s Trump”:

Going into the NFL’s quarterly owners’ meeting this week, Washington Commanders proprietor Daniel Snyder found himself orbiting the same fiery sun as Donald Trump.

Like the former president, Planet Snyder exerts the sort of moral force that attracts multiple investigations. The Washington, D.C., attorney general is chasing a Washington Post scoop from 2020 about sexual harassment charges and possible ticket-selling scams. A parallel House committee probe occupies similar trajectory. Meanwhile, the NFL, which fined Snyder $10 million in 2021 for rampant bullying and harassment at the franchise, is continuing its own investigation led by former U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White.
