NFL’s Goodell: Redskins nickname a ‘unifying force’

NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the Washington Redskins nickname is a “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.

He cited the nickname’s origins and polls that support its popularity.

Goodell 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.
