DC Council Slated To Vote On Redskins Name Resolution

The DC Council today will vote on a resolution calling for a Redskins name change, and the team yesterday asked fans in the District to contact their lawmakers and share "what #RedskinsPride means." The e-mail is a "new acknowledgement from the team of the debate over its name." Meanwhile, the NFL said that league execs will meet Friday with N.Y. State Assembly member Claudia Tenney, who has been a "vocal critic of a Native American leader urging the league to take action against the Redskins" (WASHINGTON POST, 11/5).
