NFL loses its first battle to strike down Jonathan Gruden’s lawsuit against it
Dan Snyder accused of belittling executives
The Washington football team has been under fire recently after former owner Dan Snyder was accused of belittling employees and harassing women. The team’s human resources department is allegedly understaffed, and the culture at the team is slow to react to any complaints about misconduct. A former employee, Emily Applegate, testified about instances of inappropriate conduct by Snyder, spanning his tenure as owner. There are two categories of misconduct: unwelcome sexual overtures and exhortations to wear revealing clothing or flirt with staff members.
In another allegation, Engleson, a former team executive, said that Snyder had belittling and insulting employees. Her accusations allegedly began after she told her new deputies about harassment from Michael, and she explained to them that the company did not have a process to report harassment. But she was wary of confiding in Snyder. Snyder did not comment. The company has yet to release a statement on the allegations.
Dan Snyder’s wife accused of belittling female employees
An investigation into allegations of belittling and sexual harassment against the Minnesota Vikings owner and his wife has begun. According to the Post, Snyder allegedly belittled and degraded female employees at the NFL team, which he owns. Snyder has denied these accusations, but his wife’s actions have created a hostile work environment. The NFL team has appointed a new human resources manager to handle the investigation.
The NFL should ban Snyder and force him to sell his team if the accusations are true. The NFL should take action because women are a critical part of the NFL’s growth and success. The women’s issues should not stop with cheerleaders wearing pink. While Snyder’s wife has denied these allegations, she is still deeply immersed in team operations and should be held accountable for her actions.
Dan Snyder accused of belittling women
The Minnesota Vikings’ former general manager, Dan Snyder, has been accused of belittling women at work. In an article published Thursday, the Washington Post detailed allegations by former team business managers that Snyder abused women. The stories detailed misogynistic comments and unwanted touching by male executives. Snyder, however, was not personally accused, but the story implied that he had knowingly tolerated the hostile environment.
In 2008, the team was hit by a sexual harassment complaint. The woman filed the lawsuit after working for the team for eight years. Johnston described how Dan Snyder aggressively pushed her into a limo after an evening work dinner. Snyder asked her to ride in the limo with him. She said that she didn’t feel comfortable with this and left. The NFL has said it is investigating these allegations.
Dan Snyder accused of destroying Jon Gruden’s career
The NFL has been accused of destroying the career of ESPN analyst Jon Gruden by his former teammate, Dan Snyder. Snyder is a former NFL player who was fired in 2013 because he allegedly attacked an ESPN analyst named Mary Ellen Blair. The accusation stems from a private investigator’s attempt to seize Blair’s emails, texts, and phone records. The investigator claims he has evidence of Blair’s role in a global conspiracy.
The alleged affair between Snyder and the Raiders coach reveals the NFL wants to fire Gruden. The NFL also helped keep NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith in her position. But Snyder wants to keep the investigation secret. It is unclear what Snyder has done to protect Gruden. Gruden’s career is now in a mess and the league needs to explain how it worked. If he did not do enough to protect the NFL’s interest, the Raiders should be fired, too.
