NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the Washington Redskins nickname is ''unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect.''
Goodell was responding to a letter from 10 members of Congress who want the name changed because it is offensive to many Native Americans.
Goodell cited the nickname's origins and polls that support its popularity. He wrote that he understands the feelings surrounding it are complex and could change, but he also point out fan pride in the team's heritage.

Wilbon just crucified Goodell on PTI for his "gutless" stance on this issue. He said calling them Redskins is like using the N word.
All the bitches on Around the Horn were saying that same thing. And of course that cunt Jamele Hill made it about black people
