You just hate to see this.
According to Chris Russell, Redskins insider for 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Dan Snyder’s organization has seen a “mass exodus of employees in 2019.”
“I’ve been told this by multiple, multiple people. Almost 40 people have left, behind the scenes. We’re not talking about football players or coaches or anything like that. … Nobody wants to work there. It’s a terrible culture.”
The Redskins fired President of Business Operations and COO Brian Lafemina in December less than eight months after hiring him. Chief Marketing Officer Steve Ziff, Senior VP of Consumer Sales Jake Bye, and Chief Commercial Officer Todd Kline also left the organization.
“Nobody wants to work there. Nobody believes in the direction and the leadership of that franchise.”
This is disappointing.
The Redskins are a historic franchise. They’ve won… <checks notes> …one single playoff game dating back to the year 2000. They are filling up…. <checks notes> ...74% of their 82,000 capacity stadium, which is located in the middle of nowhere. The team blows, half of the country thinks their moniker is racist, and they haven’t won jack shit since 1991.
I just hope those 40-some employees find better gigs elsewhere.
