Redskins’ Dan Snyder says team name is not an issue

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder says his team’s nickname is not an issue and it’s “time that people focus on reality” concerning these matters. Snyder said Tuesday the Redskins did their homework – “unlike a lot of people” – when the team recently established a foundation to assist American Indian tribes. Snyder spoke at a ceremony at which the Redskins donated to refurbish a local high school sports field. It was the first time he had addressed the name controversy since establishing the foundation. Snyder has insisted he will not change the team name despite assertions that it is offensive. – Associated Press
