Daniel Snyder To Meet With Roger Goodell On Redskins Name
Redskins Owner Daniel Snyder is scheduled to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell this week regarding the team's moniker, and a source said that there is "no indication that Snyder has modified his stance about changing the name." The meeting "apparently could take place" today ahead of a scheduled meeting tomorrow between NFL officials and representatives of the Oneida Indian Nation (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 10/28).
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said it "probably would be a good idea if they change the name." Pelosi: "One of the first songs I ever learned in my whole life was, 'Hail to the Redskins.' I didn't have the faintest idea what I was saying" (THEHILL.com, 10/28).
