Redskins owner Dan Snyder to meet with NFL about team name, logo

Posted: Updated:

Redskins owner Dan Snyder is scheduled to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week to discuss the team's name and logo.

Snyder has been adamant that he will never change the name despite claims from some Native Americans that it is offensive and hurtful.

The Oneida Indian Nation has been lobbying for a name change and support for the effort has grown in recent months.
         
The Oneida Nation is slated to meet with NFL officials to discuss the issue.
