Washington Redskins the story continues

For years people have been fighting against the name WASHINGTON REDSKINS. In 1993, the National Congress of American Indians stated that the club name is derogatory and racist to Native Americans. For that reason, a request to cancel various Redskins trademarks was granted in 2014. However, the club's owner, Dan Snyder, was unwilling to even consider changing the name.

 

In light of all the events of the past year, the tide now seems to be turning. Main sponsor FedEx threatened not to pay the remaining amount of the sponsorship deal (45 million) and PepsiCo, Nike and the Bank of America also started to raise the issue.

Reason enough to change the name to Washington Football Team. This gives the club the opportunity to look for a new name, a name without negative associations and which can be used freely.
