Daniel Snyder and Roger Goodell are meeting this week to discuss the name Washington “Redskins,” according to the Washington Post.
It’s unclear who called the meeting, but according to the Post:
The meeting between Snyder and Goodell “is to get more of an understanding from the club as to how it plans to address the issue,” according to the person with knowledge of the situation.
Snyder, who bought the team in 1999, doesn’t want to change the name. The President of the United States and Roger Goodell both have more than hinted at it. Various polls have the public 68-32ish in favor of keeping the name, but the media feels strong about changing it. [via Wash Post]
