The Commanders are still in the spotlight
The Washington Commanders offered an owner of a season ticket $14,822 to win the 50-50 draw during their match in the game against their opponents the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 12 of this season.
The only issue is that the check issued by the franchisor bounced.
The fan, who was named Drew and told a Washington radio station “The Team 980-AM” that when he tried to transfer the money in his account with “Washington Football Team Charitable Foundation” the check was never cleared. The station sent him images of the check to serve to prove.
In the end, it damaged his account , forcing him to process the fraudulent check.
The commanders informed that the Washington Post that the team has now direct transfered the money to his account.
“We’ve been in contact with the fan and made the payment electronically directly into his bank account,” a Commanders spokesperson stated. “It was a mistake by the bank and we’ve approached the bank to discover the cause, and ensure that it won’t occur again.”
This was the Commanders season opener, and they took 28-22. they’ve played two home games played at FedExField in the past and are scheduled to play scheduled in the next game against their rivals the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. If additional 50-50 raffles be held and the team is going to be looking to ensure that the checks are valid.
Financial transactions do have some hiccups, but the team’s owners and the Commanders Dan Snyder have not been lately in the best light and this is another negative thing for the company.
In the course of Tuesday’s proceedings, Snyder emailed the other owners, addressing allegations in the ESPN report that Snyder had private investigators attempt to find “dirt” on them , as well as claims that the owners as well as the league office, and the commissioner Roger Goodell “can’t f- at me.”
The report also states it was reported that Snyder has enough data in order to “blow up” some others NFL owners.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told the NFL meeting in the fall that there’s “merit” in seriously think about taking Snyder off for Commanders owner, and forcing Snyder to sell the team. The last Thursday night’s game were fans who wore bags of paper that read “Sell the Team” across them.
Irsay also posted an obscure tweet on Wednesday that quoted the John Mellencamp track.
“…You must stand to defend something…or you’re going to fall…for everything …,” that he tweeted.
It’s unclear if the tweet was made in reference to his public remarks regarding Snyder which was the first such comments from different NFL owners.
Snyder Snyder, who is estimated to have a value of $5.6 billion and has been fined 10 million in the course of an extended inquiry into the Commanders after he was accused of having an unhealthy workplace.
