Dallas Cowboys owner told a room full of season ticket holders that he was friends with Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. He went on to say that he did not believe that Snyder was trying to be insensitive in his desire to continue using the Redskins nickname.
“It would be a real mistake — a real mistake — to think Dan, who is Jewish, has a lack of sensitivity regarding anybody’s feelings,” Jones said, via USA Today.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was also at the meeting with fans and chimed in as well.
“I’m confident that he’s listening,” Goodell said. “I’m confident he feels strongly about that name, but he also wants to do the right thing.”
“We want to make sure what we’re doing is not insulting in any way to anybody,” Goodell said. “Again, I think the Redskins have always done this in a way that respects the honor and tradition and the history of Native Americans. And that’s something for them to be proud of.”
While discussion about the Redskins nickname is great anything linking the Cowboys and Redskins owner as friends is not likely to excite either fan base.

The worse Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III plays this season the more slander he continues to catch. This time, the shots come from an unexpected source.

November will mark six years since the Washington Redskins star safety, Sean Taylor, was murdered in Florida. However for his family, friends, and fans, the botched home robbery which subsequently led to his untimely death probably seems like it took place yesterday.

Thanks to the Redskins allowing 8,000 yards in punt returns and their defense being unable to tackle, there was no hope for further Romobyl. Instead, it was RGIII who turned the ball over more, with a fumble inside the Redskins 10 then an interception in the end zone, both in the second half as Washington desperately tried to claw back in the game.The Redskins offense by and large...
According to a Baltimore restaurant, Robert Griffin III has more generations in his name than wins this season. Troll job.

The Washington Redskins visit the Dallas Cowboys for a pivotal NFC East showdown in Week 6′s edition of Sunday Night Football. For the 1-3 Redskins, a win would put them right back into the thick of things in the league’s most timid division.
