NFL Owners Approve Sale Of Washington Commanders

(Minneapolis, MN) — The Washington Commanders are under new ownership. On Thursday, NFL owners unanimously voted to ratify the sale of the Commanders, formally welcoming Josh Harris to their ranks. The vote came hours after the league’s finance committee endorsed the sale-and-purchase agreement, which was first publicly announced in May. Shortly after the sale was approved, the NFL said in a statement that it was fining former owner Dan Snyder 60-million-dollars following an investigation by former U.S Attorney Mary Jo White on substantiated claims that he sexually harassed a former employee and that the team deliberately underreported revenues to the league. Harris now owns teams in three of the four major American sports leagues, including the NHL’s New Jersey Devils and NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.
