According to a report from USA Today, Redskins owner Dan Snyder — who doesn’t do a lot of media interviews — spoke to USA Today on Tuesday about the ongoing name-change issue. Again, this is a very polarizing issue in the community of Redskins fans, but Snyder’s stance is pretty clear.

“We will never change the name of the team,” he told USA Today.

The Redskins owner has said this before in the past, and appears to fully stand behind that statement. There is currently an ongoing trademark lawsuit in regards to the team name, and when asked about changing the name if they lose the battle in court, Snyder had the following to say:

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

This certainly won’t be the last time we hear about this issue, but it appears, at least according to the owner, that the team is going to be named the Redskins for as long as he has a say.

10 Comments:
  • "Never" is a long time but I'm glad I'll be welcoming RGIII and the REDSKINS to MetLife Stadium in December.
  • Ir's absolutely rediculous that the team hasn't voluntarily changed the name long ago. My wife is part Cherokee and accordingly so are my 3 kids. It's an insulting and derogatory term, I don't see how you can argue otherwise. Native Americans have no voice to be heard, at least nbot in the D.C. area.FCan you imagine any other race or ethnicity being so insulted without a major uproar? Change the name, it will still be the same beloved team, the fans will get used to it quickly and we'll look back in wonder how it went on for so long, like 'colored' bathrooms and drinking fountains.
  • Good for you Dan Synder. I wish more people were like you in this regard. No reason to change the name. People are way to sensitive these days.
  • @mbutts41: Don't know what your nationality or relgion is but insert a derogatory name for that instead of 'Redskins' and tell me then about too sensitive.
  • yeah lambo, stop being such a sensitive puss!!!! you lil bitch
  • Suppose a billionaire buys a new franchise and wants the name Whiteskins, Brownskins, or Blackskins. Are these acceptable ?
  • lambo44-Get over this pc crap.I married a woman who is also part Indian.Her favorite team is the Redskins.Move on to something that really matters.
  • BRAVO Dan Snyder to standing up to the overblown political correctness of today. The Redskins have been the Redskins for a long time and now all of sudden we have to change the name. The name of football team is just that. Yes call it the Whiteskins doesn't bother me. Its the name of a dam football team and not someone calling me a whitebread or honky! Get over it. Not only can we not joke with each other but we can't name a football team without the race card being drawn.
  • Dan Foreskin is just the tip of whats wrong in the USA. Oh...thats right who was here first. Please take his hair.
  • I don't get it. Why would anyone object to being named after a type of potato??
