Will Washington Redskins Change their Name?

Will the owner of the Washington Redskins have to change the football team's name? Owner Dan Snyder says he hopes those offended by the team's nickname will try to respect what the name means to the team, its fans, and some Native Americans.

Snyder addressed the matter today in a letter to season-ticket holders. He cites polls and other evidence that indicate many American Indians support the name.

Snyder says he respects the opinions of those want the name changed, but he says the team can't ignore its history.
