Dan Le Batard: The Only Thing Keeping Jeff Bezos from Owning the Washington Commanders is Other NFL Owners

There’s a lot of speculation about what the future holds for Dan Snyder as owner of the Washington Commanders. Last week, Forbes reported Snyder had hired Bank of America to explore options of selling the franchise. Amazon founder and super mega billionaire Jeff Bezos has been among those linked to potentially buying in. But Dan Le Batard says other NFL owners, including Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, are the main obstacle in preventing Bezos from taking over.

“The only thing that would keep Bezos out of their club is them threatened by him being able to buy them all,” Le Batard said on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on Tuesday. “Jerry Jones is the power broker in that sport. Bezos dwarfs him in fame, stature, power. I don’t know how much Jerry Jones would like that. But I’d assume they’d want the Bezos name there, and I’d assume Bezos would want to align himself in all the ways that make him popular in town.”

Dan said Bezos buying a home in the D.C. area combined with his purchase of the Washington Post in 2013 was a sign that he would eventually be the owner of the Commanders.

“I thought he always wanted this team, and now being able to get Amazon Prime in the game, cause he’s already got a relationship with Goodell,” he said. “I simply assume Bezos is going to be the next owner of that team.”

It hasn’t been established for certain whether Snyder would be relinquishing ownership of the franchise fully, or if he would be seeking out minority owners. But Le Batard’s crew also pointed out that Amazon being a media rights holder could also stand in the way of Bezos owning a team. But Le Batard believes there’s a way around it, and that other owners in the league fear Bezos would be far more successful than them.
