Cuban to Dan Snyder: Accept your mistakes
As another high-profile owner of a professional sports group, the Dallas Mavericks’ Mark Cuban has this guidance for Washington’s Dan Snyder: Accept your mistakes.
Cuban was reacting to Thursday’s report in The Washington Post in which 15 females made allegations of unwanted sexual advances and a toxic work environment culture from 2006 to 2019. On his SiriusXM Radio show, the Mavericks owner made a public call for Snyder and his top staffers to show accountability for what has actually happened.
” If you know Dan Snyder, if you’re included with the Redskins, if you connect to them, inform Dan and tell his senior management you’ve got to just recognize what you did best and what you did wrong,” Cuban said. “You need to accept the errors you made. That’s painful. I made a lot of mistakes. Which’s the only method this is going to get resolved.”
In February 2018, Sports Illustrated reported on “a business culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior” that spanned years in the Mavericks’ company, consisting of many claims versus previous CEO and president Terdema Ussery, who left the team in 2015.
Cuban released public apologies and agreed to contribute $10 million to ladies’s organizations. He did not face discipline from the NBA, which investigated the claims and stated Cuban did not pay sufficient attention to business culture within his organization.
Snyder reacted to the Post story twice Friday, initially in a declaration then in a letter to Washington workers, a copy of which was acquired by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
In the letter, the Snyders apologized on behalf of the group and requested everybody’s assistance “to develop a much better organizational culture.”
” We need to improve and the time is now,” the letter from the Snyders said.
Snyder has actually employed Washington, D.C., law office Wilkinson Walsh to carry out an independent review of group policies, culture and allegations of work environment misconduct. The NFL said in a declaration that it will meet legal representatives after the investigation is total and will act based on the findings.
On his radio show Friday, Cuban assessed when he initially became aware of the claims against his group.
” Actually, I started crying,” Cuban stated. “I was so upset.”
