D.C. Congresswoman will propose bill for RFK Stadium site as soon as Redskins change name

D.C. Congresswoman will propose bill for RFK Stadium site as soon as Redskins change name

D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is prepared to bring a bill to Congress to buy the federal land that houses RFK Stadium in an effort to get a new facility built for the Washington football team. 

As soon as the Redskins change their name. 

"I certainly will. This is unused land. Unused Federal land. And the District can’t afford, because we have a height limit, to have any land go that goes unused. I couldn’t get this bill through even when Republicans controlled the House," Norton said Monday. "So I now believe I can get it through only after the name is changed for the good of the District of Columbia."

Speaking exclusively with the Redskins Talk Podcast, Norton explained that a new stadium on the RFK site will make a tremendous economic impact for both the citizens of D.C. and for Redskins owner Dan Snyder.  

"Everybody wants to come to the nation’s capital. Events benefit tremendously by coming to the nation’s capital," the congresswoman said. "But you’ve got to have a place to hold those events. There was only one place to hold those events. And [not having] that place has - for no good reason - cost all those involved, including the District of Columbia, but above all Dan Snyder, a boatload, indeed a fortune, in revenue.”

The Redskins haven't played in D.C. since the late 1990s and, coincidental or not, the team has experienced barely any postseason success in that same time period. Norton might not be the biggest football fan, but she knows what's good for Washington football fans. 

"The time has come, it’s way overdue."

Report: Native American groups send letter to Roger Goodell asking NFL to force Redskins name change

Report: Native American groups send letter to Roger Goodell asking NFL to force Redskins name change

The push for the Washington Redskins' name to change continued on Monday, as more than a dozen Native American groups sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell calling for the league to force the franchise to change its name immediately, according to Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press.

Demands from the letter were for the NFL to end the use of all Native American names, imagery and logos, specifically citing Washington's franchise. The Redskins' primary logo, which has been the same since 1972, features a modernized Native American with burgundy and gold feathers.

The Native American groups "expect the NFL to engage in a robust, meaningful reconciliation process with Native American movement leaders, tribes, and organizations to repair the decades of emotional violence and other serious harms this racist team name has caused to Native Peoples," the letter read.

Last Friday, the Redskins released a team statement that the franchise was undergoing a "thorough review" of its name after public pressure from FedEx, PepsiCo, Bank of America, Nike and other major corporate sponsors called for a change.

Monday's letter comes on a day where many voices commented on a potential name change, including President Donald Trump. Additionally, D.C. Mayor Murial Bowser said Monday that she's pleased with the organization's choice to review its name. Others, such as FS1's Skip Bayless, don't believe the franchise will change its name until it has to.

Outside of coronavirus and the social justice movement in America, the Redskins' name controversy might be the biggest storyline in the United States right now. These comments on Monday are just the latest proof of that.
