Surprise, bids for Commanders lower than anticipated

Sunday, we learned there were actually no $7 billion bids for the Washington Commanders.

Though Forbes had reported there have been multiple bids exceeding the $7B mark, Front Office Sports Sunday disputed the earlier Forbes numbers, stating that there are no bids higher than $6.3 billion.

What had been a foregone conclusion for many was that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos would be bidding. Surprisingly perhaps that may not be the case after all, as Bezos has yet to place a bid on the Commanders.

It has certainly been no secret that Bezos owns the Washington Post and the Post has been a leader in reporting on a toxic workplace culture under Daniel Snyder’s reign of the then-Washington Redskins.

Secondly, there has also been speculation (not actually reported) that Commanders owner Daniel Snyder would determine that he would never sell to Bezos, but would be willing to sell to other bidders, even if it were a bid less than the bid by Bezos.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, we must keep in mind that, as of now, it has yet to be confirmed officially who has actually submitted bids to Bank of America. It was confirmed, however, that Bezos did not officially place a bid.

FedEx Field is a stadium that is not in good condition, and its location is one where traffic is terribly congested. Snyder attempted feverishly in 2022 to get support for a new stadium but could not garner support from elected officials.

All we can confirm at this point is virtually every Washington Commanders fan is now holding their breadth, fearing that Daniel Snyder might not actually sell.

However, though the price may not be as high as Snyder had hoped, Snyder did choose not to attend Sonny Jurgensen’s jersey retirement. This pretty much communicated to Washington fans that Snyder has checked out and did not want to make an appearance, be seen on camera, be asked questions, etc.
