NFL: San Francisco Chronicle Stops Using The Word “Redskins”


Per multiple industry sources, the San Francisco Chronicle has decided to no longer print the term “Redskins.”

No announcement has been made, and it’s not known whether an announcement is coming. It’s possible, we’re told, that the change will be explained in a column.

Regardless, the decision was communicated internally on Friday, October 25. The 49ers play at Washington on Monday, November 25.
