Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder may soon sell the franchise. But before a sale goes through, the disgraced owner has made several insane demands.

According to The Washington Post, who tweeted the prominent details, “Daniel Snyder hs demanded that fellow NFL franchise owners and the league indemnify him against future legal liability and costs if he sells the Washington franchise, angering some owners and renewing talk about voting to remove Snyder from ownership.”

Snyder and dissension among owners feels like it goes hand-in-hand. A report emerged from ESPN in the fall that Snyder “threatened to blow up” several owners, including Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Not in the literal sense, of course, but in an exposing fashion. Snyder feverishly denied those claims, one of several absurd reactions Snyder had to controversies over the years.

The insane demands angering fellow NFL owners is a worthwhile talking point also, of course. The league could potentially vote Snyder out of ownership from the Commanders. And assuming the report from The Post is accurate, those desires may have just been reignited.

Daniel Snyder has owned the Washington franchise since 1999. A myriad of disturbing, disgusting, and disgraceful incidents over the years have soured thousands of Commanders fans. Talk of new ownership has excited those fans, but until it’s official, we are left with stories like this.
