Basically the guy trusts that Beth did a solid and thorough investigation job, that she wasn't impeded in any way... but once the investigation part is done, she refers to her client, and the client decides what is to be publicly said. Attorney-client privilege can only be waived by the later, not the former.

On the suspension-not-suspension thing, he said Snyder doesn't seem like a guy who would voluntarily step aside, nor want to publicly say he's stepping aside. So the league and/or Wilkinson probably had a more "suspension-like suspension" in mind, but Snyder negotiated a way to put it out there with less ego hurting words.
I don't understand why the NFL admitted to the fact that there's no report. They could have easily said, she wrote a report, we're just not going to make it public.

Also, the people that are complaining about the fact that Deflagate resulted in a 139-page report, really don't realize that it was an owner(s) vs. owner situation.

Oh there's a report. Basically the guy said you give the report to the client, and sometime it can be a good tool to be put out there as to say "see how much we did to look into and fix this issue ?"... but sometimes there's just to much that could be hurtful and an oral statement is best.
The lawyer said he was actually quite surprised that the written statement put out by the NFL was longer and more detailed than they needed to be.

They tried to answered as many questions as they could without giving us the real thing.

Anyway, it's all good for Snyder, does enough to be able to put it under the rug and move on without actually hurting nor significantly punishing him.

Every fan base likes to think the league stacks the deck against them somehow. It's just silly paranoid fan conspiracy BS.
The research on negativity bias in social emotional actions is pretty validated. It is one of the reasons one bad experience at a restaurant is enough for people to quit going to their favorite restaurant. Fans of a sports team are probably the worst at it.

Anyways here is a recent theses paper that looks at individual referee bias and also team penalties. It is pretty easy language. The shocker? Washington is right in the middle when it comes to penalty rates. The biggest factors that influenced penalty rates? Unfamiliarity by a team to rule changes and organizational culture. https://ir.uiowa.edu/cgi/viewcontent...=honors_theses

If we truly want to tip scales in our favor here is an article putting in laymen's terms showing a sideline bias. Basically if we run plays toward Washington sidelines calls are more likely to go in our favor. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...freakin-works/
