NEW YORK (AP) — One of the nation’s largest newspapers says it will no longer use the name Redskins when writing about Washington’s NFL team.

The Daily News of New York said Thursday in a lead editorial titled “Sack the Name” that the reference will no longer be part of stories and columns. The name, however, may appear in quotations, reader letters and discussion of the dispute. Also, the logo of a feathered
Native American will be dropped, replaced by an image that features team colors.

The editorial notes that language changes through the years, and “the time has come to leave
he word behind.”

Other media outlets have also dropped the name. Last month, CBS analyst Phil Simms, who will handle Washington’s Week 4 game, said he likely won’t use the nickname.

    I have seen to many articles where they have interviewed native american groups. and they all say that they are not offended by the name. Stupid white people fighting for a cause that will benifit nobody but themselves. Again.
