The Washington Redskins are just desperate now. They failed setting up a foundation to help the Native Americans, and they didn’t do well with twitter trolling Harry Reid. Now, they’re calling up random Native Americans to fly out to DC for photo ops.
This is what Chariman Joseph Holley, the leader of a small Nevada tribe had to tell 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.”
