THAT 79% OF AMERICANS ARE INFAVOR OF KEEPING THE NAME.

21% WANT THE REDSKINS TOCHANGE IT BUT I BET THOSE

BUT FOLKS, IN AN OPEN LETTERTO FANS SNYDER EXPLAINED I

WAS BORN A FAN OF THEWASHINGTON REDSKINS.

THAT TRADITION, THE SONG,THE CHEER, IT MATTERS SO

MUCH TO ME AS A CHILD.

IT ISN'T JUST WHERE WE CAMEFROM, IT'S WHO WE ARE.

YES, OUR PAST IS WHO WE ARE,WE REDSKIN FANS ARE PRONE TO

THIS LAND SINCE 19-- 33.

THAT SYMBOLIZE OUR PROUDTRADITION OF, I DON'T

ACTUALLY KNOW WHY WE DO THAT.

JUST A FAD LIKE POODLESKIRTS OR SEPARATE WATER

FOUNTAINS, GET OVER IT.
