Roger Goodell: Unlikely Redskins Will Change Title

Even NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is fed up with the always confusing and inconsistent catch rule.

"I don't see him changing that perspective."

The Cleveland Indians announced Monday that they will no longer use their polarizing Chief Wahoo logo after the 2018 season, but that doesn't mean the Washington Redskins' controversial nickname is going anywhere.

"We have consistently maintained that we are cognizant and sensitive to both sides of the discussion", Dolan said in a statement issued by M.L.B. "I think that served us well but there's still a lot more work to do outside of the Rooney Rule".

The announcement was a long time coming and makes complete sense.

The group called the Washington Post poll "highly questioned" and characterized Snyder's conversations with Native Americans as "limited". However, there is still no sign that, despite public support or changing their name and logo, Washington's National Football League will follow in Cleveland's footsteps.

"From our standpoint, I think I would like to start back, instead of adding to the rule or subtracting [from] the rule, start over again and look at the rule fundamentally from the start because I think when you add or subtract, then it still leads to confusion", Goodell said at his annual state-of-the-league address during Super Bowl week. A similar poll was done in 2004 by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and it came to the same conclusion.

'Cleveland's decision should finally compel the Washington football team to make the same honorable decision, ' he continued. "It's a market we would like to stay in and we hope that the franchise owner that is eventually selected will have that view". However, with 90 percent of Native Americans saying they did not find the Redskins name offensive, building momentum for a name change campaign became a bit of a challenge. Goodell, who said he was confident in the league's finding in the case, said the NFL remains committed to the values bestowed by the rule, which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for head coaching and team front-office positions.

'The Washington Redskins team, our fans and community have always believed our name represents honor, respect and pride, ' he wrote.
