Oneida Indian Nation Asks NFL To Sanction Snyder for Redskins Name

Redskins_Dan_Snyder_2013The ongoing debate regarding the Redskins name has been turned up a notch.

In a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell that Oneida Indian Nation released to the media after its Wednesday meeting with the NFL, Nation Representative Ray Halbritter asked Goodell to “refer Washington team owner Dan Snyder to the league Executive Committee for possible sanctions” in connection with the ongoing use of the Redskins name.

Halbritter explained that the NFL’s bylaws authorize Goodell to take action “against any owner who is ‘guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.’”
