Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy was on WSSP-AM on Tuesday and he talked about the Redskins name.
“The owner, Dan Snyder, has come out very strong that he will never change the name. But I am sensitive. It’s a name that’s very derogatory to a lot of people,” said Murphy, via OCNNReport.
“When I was the athletic director at Colgate, their nickname was the Red Raiders,” Murphy told WSSP. “At some point in time, there was an Indian mascot. That went away. They kept the Red Raiders name. We studied it long and hard, got a lot of complaints, particularly from faculty on campus. But eventually changed it to just Raiders.”
I would love to hear what Redskins owner Dan Snyder thinks about Murphy’s comments.
