Goodell defends NFL's finding that Raiders complied with Rooney Rule

"I think that it has been very clear from those that we have spoken to that there are two local groups and the other four are outside of the state of North Carolina", Mitchell said.

Asked whether the league would consider a policy of keeping players in the locker room during the anthem next season, Goodell replied: "I don't know what we'll consider in the offseason".

The poll in question came in 2016, with 504 Native Americans being asked the following question: "The professional football team in Washington calls itself the Washington Redskins. We're sensitive to that and understand it and we make sure we do whatever we can to make sure we're presenting all of our teams in a positive fashion".

"I think the Vikings should take a lot away from this season, in a positive way", Goodeell said.

Competition committee members have studied the catch rule annually and have tweaked the wording of it.

Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred " the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball". The results were similar to those from a poll 12 years earlier by the Annenberg Public Policy Center.

Goodell said during his annual Super Bowl address Wednesday that teams "have to make their own decisions as far as who's on their roster". We hope the franchise owner that is eventually selected will have that view.

After the Indians announced their decision Monday, the Change the Mascot campaign issued a statement by Oneida Nation representative Ray Halbritter wanting the Redskins to follow suit. "Ignoring the overwhelming feedback from those directly affected by the term and hiding behind discredited defenses is a poor attempt to deny the inevitable need for a long overdue name change".

Meanwhile in the National Football League, the Washington Redskins operate both under a blatantly racist name and use a logo that is also offensive. Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that a trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes on free speech rights.

'The Washington Redskins team, our fans and community have always believed our name represents honor, respect and pride, ' he wrote. Their lease at FedExField expires in 2027.
