The independent probe of the Washington Football Team is expected to be turned into National Football League (NFL) commissioner Roger Goodell within the next few weeks with emails having been found in the probe that could prove to be pivotal.
Washington Football Team are currently under investigation for allegations of sexual harassment. However, once this concludes, team owner Dan Snyder may face a fine, suspension and/or the team may be docked draft picks.
As part of a recent independent probe of the Washington Football Team, email accounts of current and former employees of the team have been examined in recent months.
The emails have disclosed a toxic working environment, and contained troubling exchanges, including nude photos and other inappropriate material.
Former Director of Washington Football Team’s cheerleading squad Donald Wells, has wanted Synder to be held responsible for the claims of workplace harassment that have existed for many years. Wells himself has sent emails that would be considered offensive in 2007, but say’s that he does not recall sending the emails.
In a recent interview on DC morning show, Wells spoke of a Change.org petition that calls for the investigation to be made public, while also to ‘hold Dan Snyder accountable for the history of serial sexual harassment within his organisation. The petition has more than 38,000 signatures.
