For the second time in its history, the D.C. Council has called on the Washington Redskins to change their nickname. By a 10-0 vote, the council approved a resolution Tuesday urging the team to abandon the nickname, which some consider offensive to Native Americans. Source: Associated Press SteveRobWhatever's Take: The public pressure mounts on Dan Snyder. The D.C. Council has no power over the team, but the bad press won't help call off the dogs for the Redskins. This isn't going to go away until Snyder makes a change. At this point it's all about how much pressure Snyder is willing to endure to keep the team.
