Redskins' Sponsors Remain Mostly Mum On Name Issue, But Some Face Pressure To Act
Published June 20, 2014
MORE THAN FOOTBALL: FedEx Chair & CEO Fred Smith, who also has a personal stake in the Redskins, acknowledged while his company has naming rights to FedExField, "there are many other events there," including sporting events and concerts. Smith: "So that's our sponsorship and we really don’t have any dog in this issue." Smith said his personal stance on the Redskins name is "going to remain personal" and added "FedEx's contract is with Washington Football for the stadium ... so our sponsorship is a good one for FedExField and the Redskins need to speak on the Redskins name" ("Closing Bell," CNBC, 6/18). Fitzgerald: "It's not our place to have a position on the name" (AP, 6/19).
