Goodell: Redskins name honors Native Americans

January 31, 2014
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the Washington Redskins nickname has been "presented in a way that honors Native Americans."

Goodell said Friday at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference that he's been talking to Native American leaders in the past year. But he says the vast majority of Americans in general and Native Americans in particular support the franchise keeping the nickname.

Asked if the term was appropriate to refer to a Native American, Goodell said, "This is the name of a football team."
