Al Michaels Implies Daniel Snyder Won’t Ever Change Washington Redskins Name
The Washington Redskins appear to be headed for a name change somewhere down the road. But given team owner Daniel Snyder‘s comments in the past, it won’t be anytime in the very near future.
Long-time NFL announcer Al Michaels was recently on the Jim Rome Show and discussed this very topic. Michaels’ comments are interesting, because he’s actually talked to Snyder about the name change:
“It seems to me as if he is going to hold on. I mean, all of a sudden, I mean for 70-some odd years this was a zero issue. And then it became an issue? I understand that we live in this politically correct environment, it’s crazier than ever. Senators want to weigh in on this? Like there’s nothing else to do in Congress, this became an issue?”
“And I do know, I’ve talked to Snyder about it. Not recently, but when we were in Washington last year and he basically said, ‘Over my dead body.’”
Over my dead body, eh. Those words are often chosen by people trying desperately to hang onto something that’s outdated, or not in line with modern views. Obviously Snyder didn’t use those exact words, but he apparently implied them.
In the end it probably won’t be left up to Snyder whether the name changes or not. They’ll probably have to force him into it, or at least convince him that the change will make him more money. If there’s anything that can sway him on his topic — it’s got to be a truckload of cash.
