NFL owners open to league suspension of Snyder

Several NFL team owners today said that "no meaningful steps have been taken toward making a push to remove" Commanders Owner Daniel Snyder. However, some owners indicated that they "would support a significant league suspension" of Snyder "if allegations of sexual harassment and financial impropriety against him and the team are substantiated" in Mary Jo White's ongoing investigation. One owner said, “There’s anger. But there’s quite a difference between wishing he was gone and taking steps to force him out.” That owner added, “It all depends on the report.” Multiple owners "cited the legal complications" of a full ouster, "expressing the belief that Snyder would go to great lengths to fight any such effort" (WASHINGTON POST, 5/24).

SBJ Spotlight: TikTok’s threat to traditional sports media

While tech companies are consumed with finding ways to compete with TikTok, almost no one in conventional media “spends any time talking about it,” said Recode senior correspondent Peter Kafka in an Spotlight interview with SBJ’s John Ourand. “To me, that’s just an obvious disconnect.” Kafka authored a recent column headlined, “It’s TikTok’s world. Can TV live in it?” He said the main response to TikTok’s growth from traditional media execs has been to “punt and hope it’s someone else’s problem a quarter from now or two years from now.” But Kafka said that ignores the trend of conventional broadcast audiences growing older while a billion younger consumers spend most of their media time watching short video after short video. “If you’re in the business of getting anyone under the age of 30 to look at what you’re putting on a screen, you have to think about the fact that you’re probably asking them to put down TikTok and watch your thing instead,” said Kafka. “That’s a very difficult ask. … [TikTok] is insanely addictive.”
