"We will never change the name of the team," Snyder told the newspaper in an interview 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."
"We'll never change the name," Snyder told USA Today. "It's that simple. NEVER -- you can use caps."
And what of the question Blackhorse wanted to ask if she ever met him? Would Snyder dare call her a redskin to her face?
"I think the best way is to just not comment on that type of stuff," Snyder said. "I don't know her."
Blackhorse says she is not surprised at Snyder's answer. "If it was appropriate to call me that, he'd comment," she says. "It must make him uncomfortable to talk about it, and it should make him uncomfortable. "He's right. He doesn't know me, or my people. And if he did, he would not use that name."
