Oneida Indian officials who oppose the Redskins nickname as a slur will meet with NFL officials next week in New York City, a tribe spokesman said Friday.
The meeting agreed to by NFL officials this month is scheduled for Wednesday in New York City, Oneida Indian Nation spokesman Brett Stagnitti told the Associated Press. ---SNIP--- Halbritter, whose tribe runs a large casino resort in Verona in central New York, says the name is degrading and has devastating effects, especially on younger Indians.

Running casinos respects the indians’ heritage? What a crock. indians are always aggrieved about something. They are like other always-aggrieved groups. Aren’t they supposed to stay on their “reservations” and leave the rest of us alone?
This is how Liberal extortion works, make up some silly charge and make the made up offending party give in
they are meeting with one tribe? What about all the others?
I wondered what the Onion would have to say on the issue:
Kids gotta be kids. Morons gotta be morons. But hey! The indians get lots of free press and maybe some free money from the NFL to just shut up and go away. That’s what this is all about anyway. MONEY! It’s ALWAYS about money.
“indians are always aggrieved about something.” Sorta like the perpetually aggrieved and outraged islamic filth dwmanding special rights.....or homosexuals....or........
Dan Snyder will pull a Boehner and cave. Some back room deal with the rest of the nervous owners will make it worth his while. The media will cheer and Redskins fans will suck it up. Remember, most Redskins fans in Maryland and Northern VA voted Marxist.
but Dan Snyder is a REPUBLICAN AND GIVES TO REPUBLICANS follow the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
How many of those “Oneidas” are more than 1/32 of an Oneida. This meeting is a travesty.
I would really like to see Dan Snyder suggest he’ll be open to changing the team name and mascot to George Washington, but he’ll move the team to Oklahoma (which means “red people” in one Native American dialect) in the process.
There are over 125 native tribes in the US. Who’s to say which tribe has rights over the name “Redskins”?
OK, to honor American Indians, change the team’s name to: The Washington Alcoholics
Perhaps the others did not donate enough to the Democratic party.
Injuns!!!!WOOOOO WWOOOO WOOOO!!!!!Geronimo!!
Yeah, I've never been the same since I was once called a cracker...
If the idiots knew the story behind the name Washington Redskins maybe they’d back off. Naw, they’re too busy with their sanctimony and arrogance to pay attention to history.
Are they going to talk to them about scalping tickets?
Please do not equate ALL indians (native Americans) to the rantings of but .001%.
