WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Dan Snyder nearly broke the world yesterday when he told the USA Today “we’ll never change the name,” referring to ongoing resistance against the ‘Redskins’ team name.
Partly because so many people had been dying to hear him acknowledge the name was being debated, but also because of the infinite tone his word choice projected.
“We’ll never change the name. It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps,” Snyder said, leaving zero room for confusion about how he felt.
He acknowledged and silenced the debate simultaneously.
Now he has someone to echo his sentiments.
Wide receiver Josh Morgan, a D.C. native, laughed at the thought of his team changing its name to ‘Redtails,’ an alternative name suggested by D.C. Councilmember David Grosso in April.
