Jeff Bezos Linked to Washington Football Team Sales Talk
quote:

Bezos’ attorney spoke with Baltimore-based sports investment banking firm Moag & Co., which led the effort to sell a chunk of the team, according to court documents obtained by Front Office Sports. 

Front Office Sports previously reported on majority owner Dan Snyder’s claims that the real estate exec Dwight Schar — one of the three minority shareholders — led “an extortion campaign” to force Snyder to sell his stake. 

On Monday morning, a filing that mentions Bezos’ attorney was made in a New Delhi courtroom. It was part of Snyder’s defamation lawsuit, originally filed in August, against Indian media company MEA WorldWide. 

In that lawsuit, Snyder’s attorneys claimed that MEA WorldWide published a string of false stories and social media posts erroneously stating Snyder had ties to sex trafficking and was close to sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein. 

Snyder’s lawyers wrote that John Moag, the founder of Moag & Co., had advance knowledge of MEA WorldWide’s “corrupt disinformation campaign by, among other things, spreading malicious lies” about Snyder.


quote:

Moag in the past has denied being part of, or having any knowledge of, the alleged misinformation campaign. Messages left with Moag and his attorney, Joe R. Reeder, by Front Office Sports were not returned. The 18-page filing in India also stated Moag exchanged 87 phone calls with former Washington Football Team President Bruce Allen. The two talked more than 22 hours total. Moag and Allen also exchanged text and email messages that “prove” the two were “focused on negative publicity directed at [Snyder],” according to the filing.
 
Allen was fired as president of The Washington Football Team in December 2019, which ended his decade-long run as an executive at the franchise his late father, George, coached in the 1970s. 

Bezos, 57, announced on Feb. 2 that he would step down as Amazon’s CEO by the end of 2021. In the past several years he’s developed a wider footprint in and around the nation’s capital: In 2013 he purchased The Washington Post, and in 2017 he tapped Arlington, Va., as the location for Amazon’s second headquarters.

Dunno but he isn’t necessarily showing great business sense.

His mistress wasn’t worth the billions he lost over her.

Hasn’t this been known? Maybe it was just a rumor before. I hope the league blocks the sale to Bezos.

So wait, a media entity attempted to smear and spin a story to fit its owners’ corporate and/or personal agenda? Never heard of that happening.

He wouldn't have a shot in hell. People on both the right and left dislike him bigly.

They SHOULD block a sale to him. But they all want their team valuation to skyrocket and this shithead spending about $1.5b he had in his couch makes everyone else millions.

There is no let/right divide on people who use Amazon to buy shite.

Nobody likes him but everyone still uses the company to order stuff online.

Snyder hasn’t been a great owner by any means, but it has been OBVIOUS Bezos has been trying to smear him via the useless Washington Post to force a sale.

The media today is nothing more than a hired mouthpiece to spread propaganda. To some extent they always have been. But never to this degree. I respect hookers more than journalists. At least hookers are open and honest about their business

You’re right, unfortunately. They’ll sacrifice long term profits for this immediate influx. Bezos will push the league even further left and alienate even more people.
