The Washington team is getting desperate. Setting up a foundation didn’t go so well. Neither did trying to Twitter troll Harry Reid. Next step: call up random Native Americans and fly them out for photo ops.
Here’s what Chariman Joseph Holley, leader of a small Nevada tribe, had to say to USA Today Sports…
“Someone working for the team called me out of the blue to invite me to a meeting in D.C. with the team and its owners and wanted to know what I thought of the team name,” Holley said in an NCAI statement released to USA TODAY Sports. “They did not tell me what the meeting was about, what I would be doing or who else was invited and wanted my answer in just a few hours. My answer was no. I’ve got responsibilities to my community and members here at home and can’t be running off to D.C. at a moment’s notice to meet with a football team to do who knows what.”
Just change the name. Please.
