Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder has said he will never change the team’s nickname, even though some find the name offensive. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell seems to back Snyder saying that the nickname is a “unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect” and says the nickname’s origins and polls that support its popularity.  A name change though wouldn’t be the first in the nation’s capital, as the Washington Bullets became the Washington Wizards back in 1997.  (Walter Iooss Jr., John Biever/SI)
