Redskins Owner Snyder Says Name Will Never Change

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is speaking out about the “Redskins” name, and if he thinks it’s racist towards many American Indians who think that the name is a racial slur.

The owner says the name is going nowhere.

“We will never change the name of the team,” Snyder told Erik Brady of USA Today this week. “As a lifelong Redskins fan, and I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means, so we feel pretty fortunate to be just working on next season.”

What if his football team loses an ongoing federal trademark lawsuit? Would he consider changing it then?

“We’ll never change the name,” he said. “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.”
