Commanders' Tanya Snyder faces scrutiny after 'Redskins' name drop

Oct 24, 2022

Washington Commanders co-CEO Tanya Snyder faced criticism Sunday after dropping the old "Redskins" moniker during a homecoming rally before the team took on the Green Bay Packers.

Snyder addressed the crowd outside FedEx Field who came out to support the team and hoped to meet some players from the past. She mentioned the "Redskins" name at the end of her speech.

The organization decided to ditch the old moniker it had since the inception of the franchise in 1933 when it was then known as the Boston Redskins. During a time of unrest in the U.S. in the summer of 2020, Washington announced it would change the name and settled on Commanders earlier this year.
