WASHINGTON -- The Washington Post editorial board is calling on Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to change his football club’s name.
Under the headline, “Change the name of the Washington NFL team. Now,” the newspaper says in an editorial posted online Friday that if Snyder won’t switch the nickname, the professional football league itself ought to do so.
The Post says, “This should be an easy call" and urges Snyder or the NFL to "get on the right side of history.”
Snyder has owned the team since 1999 and steadfastly refused to consider a change to the nickname.
