Colts Owner Jim Irsay on Dan Snyder: “I believe there is merit to removing him as owner.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was the first NFL owner to publicly make a statement against Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder. “I believe there is merit to removing him as owner.” he said, according NFL reporter Ian Rappaport. In response to a report that Dan Snyder “has dirt” on other NFL owners, Commanders reporter Matthew Paras tweeted that Irsay said he could “care less” if Dan Snyder has “dirt” on other owners. “You could investigate me ’til the cows come home. That’s not going to back me off.”

The Washington Commanders released a statement responding to Irsay’s comments: “It is highly inappropriate, but not surprising, that Mr. Irsay opted to make statements publicly based on falsehoods in the media. It is unfortunate that mr. Irsay decided to go public with that statement today, while an investigation is in process, and the team has had no opportunity to formally respond to allegations. The Commanders have made remarkable progress over the past two years. We are confident that, when he has an opportunity to see the actual evidence in this case, Mr. Irsay would conclude that there is no reason for the Snyders to consider selling the franchise. And they won’t.”

ProFootballTalk tweeted that “the owners-only session hasn’t happened yet in New York. So Irsay’s comments make a conversation on Daniel Snyder unavoidable.” referring to a conversation amongst NFL owners regarding the possible removal of Dan Snyder as owner of the team. In order for that to occur, a vote must take place that consists of 24 of the 32 owners voting to oust Snyder from the league. When Irsay was asked if there are 24 votes: “I think potentially there will be.” Ian Rappaport tweeted.
