BLM: NFL's Washington Redskins announce 'thorough review' of name

作者:admin 2020-07-04

US football team the Washington Redskins announced on Friday 'the team will undergo a thorough review of the team's name," after the key sponsor as well as investment firms and shareholders renewed calls to change the moniker many view as a slur towards Native Americans.

Team owner Dan Snyder, who had long resisted the campaign for a name change said in a statement the process "allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise, but also input" from alumni, sponsors, the National Football League (NFL) and local community. 

Shipping company FedEx asked for the rebranding on Thursday, as Nike pulled merchandise from the Washington, DC-based NFL team from its website.

FedEx said in a statement obtained by US TV sports channel ESPN it has "communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name".
