The personal conduct policy requires teams to promptly report potential allegations to the league. As for one of the charges brought against Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder, no such notification was made.

Commissioner Roger Goodell was asked if Snyder had alerted the league to the allegations made against him in 2009, Goodell said “I don’t remember him reporting it, no.”

According to the Washington Post on Tuesday, an employee in 2009 “accused Snyder of asking her for sex, groping her and trying to take her clothes off.” As a result of the incident, $1.6 million was reportedly paid out. A confidential settlement which, had confidentiality been fully respected, would never have shed any light on the situation.

The penalty imposed on Snyder supposedly covers this infraction. Goodell was not asked this question. However, this may seem like a flagrant violation of the rules, which makes it impossible for the league to even begin an investigation into the misconduct. And this will presumably require a very significant punishment, as it becomes impossible for the NFL to even begin to dig for the truth if the team withholds the accusation from the league.
