WHAT'S IN A NAME? The AP's Michael Hill reports the Oneida Indian Nation in upstate New York will "launch a radio ad campaign pressing for the Washington Redskins to get rid of a nickname that is often criticized as offensive." The first ad will run on DC radio stations prior to Monday's Eagles-Redskins game. The ads launch as the Redskins this year "face a fresh barrage of criticism over their nickname." Subsequent ads will run in DC "during home games and in the cities hosting the team when it is away." An Oneida spokesperson did not offer specifics, but said the campaign would cost beyond "multiple thousands" (AP, 9/5).
