Mark Cuban has a brutally honest message for Dan Snyder in the wake of the Washington Post’s bombshell report on the Washington franchise.
Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that 15 former female Redskins employees said they were sexually harassed during their time with the franchise. The allegations span from 2006 to 2019 and are made against some of Snyder’s inner circle.
Cuban knows what Snyder is going through. In February 2018, Sports Illustrated reported that the Dallas Mavericks had “a corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior.”
The Dallas Mavericks owner hired a female CEO, donated $10 million to women’s charities and made several public apologies. He said he was determined to do better.
Now, Cuban is suggesting that Snyder does the same.
“If you know Dan Snyder, if you’re involved with the Redskins, if you connect to them, tell Dan and tell his senior management you’ve got to just recognize what you did right and what you did wrong,” Cuban said on SiriusXM Radio. “You have to accept the mistakes you made. That’s painful. I made a lot of mistakes. And that’s the only way this is going to get resolved.”
Snyder has released a public statement, but he’s yet to do any interviews or make any public apologies. He reportedly sent a letter to his employees, co-written with his wife.
“We need to get better and the time is now,” the letter from the Snyders reportedly said.
As Cuban says, though, one statement/letter is not enough. Snyder needs to face the music publicly and outline how his franchise will do better moving forward.
