There have been reports floating for months about Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder trying to sell his team and how many people around the league would love to see it happen.

Snyder and other team officials have been accused of sexual misconduct by several former female staffers, one of many reasons some in the NFL are pushing him to sell the team.

The latest allegation against Synder and his shady practices will not help his cause with anyone around the league.

According to a recent report from ESPN, Snyder charged the Commanders franchise $4.5 million to put the team’s logo on his private plane.

Financial documents stated that the Commander’s owner called the $4.5 million charge “an advertising fee” despite the team’s then-minority owners claiming Snyder’s personal jet “provides little or no advertising value.” The one-time $4.5 million fee, coupled with Snyder paying himself a salary of $10 million, is also an issue because the minority owners who were in possession of 40% of the team did not consent to the spending.

Minority team owners Dwight Schar, Frederick W. Smith, and Robert Rothman all think that Snyder is using the team as his “personal piggy bank,” according to an arbitration petition they filed with the league.

This is just the beginning of Snyder’s troubles. The report also alleges there are other details regarding Sndyer’s wild spending that can be seen in FBI and IRS reports that looked into his alleged financial misdeeds.
