Harlem Globetrotters Willing To Sell Generals Name as Daniel Snyder Weighs Change

Redskins protest

In a statement, the team said the review "formalizes the initial discussions the team has been having with the league in recent weeks". Snyder just has one major issue: D.C.is now off limits to him.

"Breaking the connection between Washington, DC's football team and its American Indian imagery can be just one more form of cultural erasure for a group of people who should ultimately be more prominently featured in the American experience", wrote RedKyle Smith for HogsHaven.

Some might question whether Snyder would want to be associated with a name associated with losers - they only beat the Globetrotters three times (1954, 1958 and 1971), but there have been other Generals in sports, including the USFL team owned by none other than Donald Trump in the mid-80's.

Washington's "thorough review" follows increasing calls for change, including from one of the team's main sponsors FedEx.

The Redskins statement comes a day after FedEx - the company that pays the Redskins to display its name on their stadium - publicly called on the team to change its nickname. Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians continue with their names intact, though in past years the Indians ceased the use of a mascot, Chief Wahoo, and the Braves have come under scrutiny for its fans' use of a "tomahawk chop" to rally behind the team.

Why Sia Feels 'Terrible Shame' About Throwing Maddie Ziegler Into Spotlight
It's not good for her long term credibility. "I just try and help guide", Sia said of helping Ziegler's with her career choices. But Maddie knew what she wanted, sharing that she had her sights set on acting and dancing.

"Change the Mascot praises FedEx and fully supports its historic request for Washington's National Football League team to stop using the R-word racial slur as its name and mascot", coalition leader Ray Halbritter said.

"Now my hope is that the dialogue is enriched and those who have been pushing for change have been emboldened and those who have resisted it perhaps reflect on what happened today and reconsider", Hoskin said. In 2018, Goodell said he did not believe Snyder would "change his perspective" about the nickname, citing a 2016 Washington Post poll that found that 90% of Native Americans did not find the team's nickname offensive.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement he appreciates Snyder's efforts. Make a decision. Stand on the right side of history.

A statue of Marshall was removed from the team's former Washington venue, RFK Stadium, on June 19 in the wake of protests seeking racial equality following the death of George Floyd.
