Earlier this week, the football world learned that billionaire Jeff Bezos never made a bid for the Washington Commanders. Shortly afterwards, a report emerged suggesting that Dan Snyder would not sell to Bezos, even though he had made an offer.
Commanders reporter JP Finlay said, “Not only was I told that Bezos did not submit a bid, but I have been told by people that the Snyder family has no interest in selling to Bezos.” “No Bezos doesn’t mean no sale. In fact I heard today from a source close to the situation that ‘It’s going to be over soon.'”
Fans weren’t exactly thrilled with the news – but they’re not surprised.
“One would think he has a price he would accept but this is shocking news to say the least to anyone who has paid attention to anything connected to Dan. Dan hates the Wapo and will never forgive them. One has to imagine there are other owners who don’t want Bezos involved either and may be within earshot of the donation,” said one person.
Another fan said, “Dan Snyder would be the last one to screw this franchise on the way out, refusing to sell the entity with the resources this franchise needs on many fronts.”
Should Bezos make a bid Snyder can’t turn down?
