HoopsHype Washington Redskins rumors
Let the NBA's sudden crisis send a message to Dan Snyder and the NFL: That issue involving the Washington "Redskins" could blow up in your face, too. The NBA, led by Commissioner Adam Silver, took a bold step by essentially issuing the ownership death penalty as a response to the audio exposure of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The league sent the message it will not tolerate racial venom. Well done. Maybe this inglorious episode will resonate in the NFL, which also has an owner in its midst with the initials D.S., engaging in another form of race-hating. It is 2014, yet the team name for the NFL franchise representing our nation's capitol — "Redskins" — is a racial slur. USA Today Sports
