Oneida Nation: NFL Owners Should Discipline Redskins Owner for Promoting 'Bigotry'

After NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life on Tuesday, the Oneida Nation promptly urged NFL owners to take disciplinary action against the Washington Redskins for promoting "bigotry."

“In banning Clippers owner Donald Sterling, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and other NBA team owners have taken a courageous stand against racism in professional sports, acknowledging that professional leagues cannot be a platform to promote bigotry,” Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter said in a statement. “In taking such appropriate disciplinary action, the NBA has shown leagues like the NFL that they have a moral responsibility to take disciplinary action against people like Dan Snyder, who also continues to proudly promote bigotry with the use of a dictionary-defined racial slur as his team's name.”
