After facing intense pressure in recent weeks, the Washington Redskins of the National Football League have officially begun a review of the team’s name. A few hours after that announcement, the Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball also revealed a name change review is underway.
In a statement from the Redskins, owner Dan Snyder said: “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors, the National Football League and the local community it is proud to represent on and off of the field.”
