Commanders sale unofficially approved

While there was a sense of nervousness about Dan Snyder making one final power play to potentially delay the sale, everything has proceeded without a hitch. And the latest development indicates that the end of the road has officially arrived.

According to Nicki Jhabvala and Mark Maske from The Washington Post, the NFL's finance committee gave their recommendation to approve the $6.05 billion transaction to remove Snyder from the equation for good. These are normally adhered to by other owners, which is expected to be the case when they meet for a formal vote on July 20.

The two reporters stated that once the vote concludes, everything should proceed quickly thereafter. Josh Harris and his ownership group will take charge of the Commanders as early as Friday (July 21), with the Mary Jo White report relating to toxic workplace culture within the organization under Snyder's watch set to be released soon after.

This is exactly what Commanders fans wanted to hear. Especially considering there was a sense of trepidation last week following reports of potential complications regarding indemnification relating to the Jon Gruden email leaks - something Snyder still denies making public.

All of this is inconsequential for the team's long-suffering supporters. They want Snyder gone and a prosperous new era of hope to begin - and there is only a few short days to wait before their dreams come true.
