Snyder's 15-Year Tenure With Redskins Examined, As Former Employees Sound Off
Published January 6, 2014
A CULTURE OF FEAR: Those familiar with the team’s inner workings said that there is "not necessarily a problem with the structure, but rather that those tapped to do their jobs frequently are not allowed to do them." Several employees said that while Snyder "likes to ask questions, he does not always seem receptive to advice." Several former Redskins employees said that job security "was a constant fear." Employees "describe Snyder as 'moody,' 'mercurial,' and 'unpredictable,' and former coaches say Snyder’s mood is particularly volatile when the team struggles." They described "getting berated in the facility’s workout area and approached in the locker room in the minutes following games." Meanwhile, Snyder's inner circle "has shrunk over the years." Exec VP & GM Bruce Allen "is the principal now, and he's often the one who represents the owner in league matters." Allen now "is expected to assume more power within the organization." But NFL sources said that it is "too early to know how successful the organization will be now that Allen wields more power." (WASHINGTON POST, 1/5).
