Team owner Dan Snyder: There are several pending charges against Snyder.
A former cheerleader named Tiffany Bacon Scourby told the Washington Post that Snyder suggested she join her “dear friend” in a hotel room in 2004 so they “could get to know each other.”
In February 2022, a former employee told HBO she saw Snyder laugh and smoke a cigar as she watched a male executive groped his colleague’s butt in Snyder’s private suite at FedEx Field.
Another former employee, Tiffani Mattingly Johnston, said Snyder put a hand on her knee once at dinner and later pushed her into his limo, which she refused.
Snyder privately settled a 2009 sexual harassment charge for $ 1.6 million following an accident aboard his private plane, according to the Washington Post. The woman, a former employee of the club, claims that Snyder asked her for sex, groped her and attempted to take off her clothes while the two were on a team plane returning from Las Vegas.
His accuser had agreed not to sue the team or disclose his allegations as part of the deal, but the Washington Post made them public in June 2022. The newspaper obtained a letter from a team attorney detailing his allegations. his allegations claiming that the claims were not credible.
Additionally, the billionaire is accused of belittling executives, according to three executive staff members. In particular, it is alleged that he ridiculed an employee named Dennis Greene for being a college cheerleader, once he was ordered to do the wheels for his amusement. Snyder temporarily handed over day-to-day control of the club to his wife, Tanya, as the club was fined $ 10 million by the NFL. Now he faces a criminal investigation in Virginia, where the club is accused of financial negligence for allegedly defrauding season ticket holders from security deposits and improperly withholding ticket revenue from NFL teams. The commanders denied these claims.

According to a New York Times investigation, the 2013 calendar shoot didn’t involve any sex, but team officials worried the cheerleaders by taking their passports. Some cheerleaders say they had to be topless, even though the shoot didn’t include nudity. After 14 hours of filming one day, nine of the 36 cheerleaders would be asked to escort suite owners to a local nightclub. Many of the women began to cry, according to the Times.
