For years there has been a smoldering debate in regards to the Washington D.C. professional football team, and their nickname of the Redskins.

The name which has always been known to demean American Indians and seen as racist, has been cause for great debate in the nation’s capital for years.

It seems that for now, that debate can stop.  While having a conversation with USA Today, the Redskins owner, Daniel Snyder made it very clear that the Redskins will “never” change their name.

“We will never change the name of the team,” Snyder told USA TODAY Sports this week. “As a lifelong Redskins fan, and I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means, so we feel pretty fortunate to be just working on next season.”

Snyder was then asked what he would do if his franchise lost a federal trademark lawsuit that is ongoing.

“We’ll never change the name,” he said. “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.”

    Stanford used to be called the Indians. They changed their name to the Cardinal. I respect them for that. I wish the Wahington DC football team would do the same. I wish the baseball team in Cleveland would change their name as well.
