Dan Snyder once again tells Roger Goodell he’s not changing the Redskins name

According to the Washington Post,  Redskins owner Daniel Snyder met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday to discuss the Redskins name.

Snyder once again made it clear that he doesn’t plan on changing the name of his team.

According to one person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the team publicly confirmed the meeting nor discussed what happened in it, Snyder reiterated to Goodell that he has no plans to change the Redskins’ name.

A second person with knowledge of the meeting said the focus was not on changing the team’s name but declined to elaborate. The meeting was designed, another person familiar with the situation had said Monday, for the league to gather information on the team’s plans for dealing with the issues involved, including assessing and addressing opposition to the name.

Sounds like the NFL wants to know how the Redskins plan on trying to sweep this under the rug.  The problem is this issue won’t go away easily.

    Snyder is absolutely correct. At some point, someone has to stand against political correctness run amok! If we would stop caving to people who have nothing better to do than feign offense at an 81 year-old team name, or some other triviality, perhaps this game would stop. I am all for Snyder standing his ground. Who are these people who believe they have either the right or the power to force a private business owner to change the name of his business. It has to stop sometime, somewhere. The REDSKINS are not my NFL team, but I am considering wearing an RG3 jersey everywhere I go in support of private ownership. Go Snyder!
