Washington owner Dan Snyder vows culture change amid harassment report

Within the last week, all three have departed the organization.

The Washington Post published screenshots of text messages in which Richard Mann II - the team's assistant director of pro personnel - made inappropriate comments to a female employee.

Trademark issues related to the team's preferred new name are contributing to the delay, according to multiple reports. Allen also did not reply to interview requests.

"These matters are reported as serious, disturbing and contrary to the NFL's values", the statement read. "While we do not speak to specific employee situations publicly, when new allegations of conduct are brought forward that are contrary to these policies, we address them promptly".

The fact that Snyder and the team refused to make the story as open as possible should have been Commissioner Roger Goodell's first clue that the Redskins were not on the level when it came to full disclosure. I'm pretty sure that if you made a complaint, the only thing that was going to happen was that you were going to get fired.

According to officials, an outside counsel has begun investigating the allegations and the team is offering their full cooperation.

Santos, who was sacked this week, is accused by six former employees and two reporters who covered the team of commenting about their bodies and making unwelcome overtures, according to the Post. Santos was sacked this week, along with Richard Mann II.

Now, the organization formerly known as the Washington Redskins released a statement saying they are retiring the team name and logo.

Team owner Dan Snyder - who, earlier this week, agreed to change the name of the franchise from a "dictionary-defined racial slur" to a yet-to-be-determined moniker, issued a statement on Friday. As a lifelong Washingtonian I was blessed to work with a lot of great people. "This is a grown man who could be my grandfather, and he's talking about someone younger than me".

Citing accounts from 15 women - most of whom remained anonymous - the Post reported Thursday on several allegations spanning from 2006 to 2019 involving sexual overtures and comments on the appearances of female employees.
