Washington Commanders fans (all 71 of you) rejoice!
In arguably the most long overdue sale of a sports team in the history of American sports, Dan Snyder has agreed in principal to a sale of the Washington Commanders.
The deal is not with previous front runners like Jeff Bezos or Tillman Fertitta, but rather American Investor Josh Harris, owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils, with a net worth of just under $6B.
Despite constant mounting pressure from the public, Snyder had previously stated on numerous occasions that he had no plans to sell the team, which he purchased in 1999 for a mere $800, at that point, the time was the largest sale for an American sports franchise in history.
After multiple lawsuits filed on behalf of the attorney general and numerous owners stating public distaste for Snyder, Snyder changed his tune. A detailed timeline of the incidents surrounding Snyder and what lead up to the sale can be found here.
