STATING THEIR CASE: Fox' Jay Glazer reported Redskins Exec VP & GM Bruce Allen last week during a conference call with the owners "stated his case for why they wanted to keep the name." Glazer: "It's going to get pretty messy this week" ("Fox NFL Sunday," 10/6). Meanwhile, NBC’s Kristen Welker noted the Oneida Nation today is scheduled to hold a conference on the issue in DC. Republican strategist Mike Murphy said, "What’s next, the Minnesota Non-Violent Vikings? The Detroit Endangered Tigers? Unless we get a casino in exchange, I say balderdash." National Review's Rich Lowry: "If you change it, you ruin the parallelism of the Cowboys-Redskins rivalry. You can’t lose that" ("Meet the Press," NBC, 10/6).
