Dan Snyder has made no bones about the fact that he wants his team to keep being called the Redskins. It’s the name he grew up rooting for. He obviously has an emotional attachment to that tradition. That attitude has been reflected in the way the team has taken great pains to brush off the mounting pressure to change its name. The team’s official web site even recently made a defensive joke that those who want the name changed are probably just sneaky mischievous Cowboys fans.
But just as it appears like a name change is almost inevitable, Snyder is growing more and more defiant.
“We’ll never change the name,” he said in an interview with USA Today. “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.”
Uh oh, someone’s bringing out the big boy capital letters.
Of course, now that Snyder had made this proclamation, he’ll either look extremely foolish for having said this when he eventually has to cave or he’ll stubbornly resist way too long just because he has to stick to his guns. Either way, sowing the seeds for Danny humiliation to come.
