NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell softened his stance on the Redskins name on Wednesday when he said that the NFL had to listen to concerns about the team’s nickname even if only one person is concerned about it.
In an interview on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, Goodell, who grew up in the region as a Baltimore Colts and then Redskins fan, said, “I think what we have to do though is we have to listen.”
“If one person is offended, we have to listen," he said.
**NFL Commissioner on Redskins Name: ‘If One Person Is Offended, We Have to Listen’
**I’m offended Roger Goodell is the commissioner of the NFL. I got offended when I couldn’t watch a news broadcast without seeing Goodell’s wife constantly flirt with Shephard Smith. I am offended seeing players constantly being flagged and fined for executing textbook plays and making clean tackles. I’m offended the Rams aren’t in L.A., the Cardinals aren’t in St. Louis, the Colts aren’t in Baltimore, and the Houston Oilers don’t exist. I’m offended the Broncos cut Tebow. I’m offended the Green Bay Packers can’t play defense. Something should be done about all of this.
