A D.C. Councilmember plans to introduce a resolution that calls on the Washington Redskins to change their name … maybe to the Redtails?

Councilmember David Grosso, an at-large independent, says the name is “racist and derogatory,” and that “it’s time to make a change.”

Earlier this year, Mayor Vincent Gray said he would also like the name changed. But Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and team officials have largely avoided the debate, giving no indications that they are seriously considering such a change.

This seems to not go away!
