FILE - In this Oct. 21, 2012 file photo, Washington Redskins helmets and logo are shown during the first half of an NFL football game in East Rutherford, N.J. The team's nickname, which some consider a derogatory term for Native Americans, has faced a barrage of criticism. Local leaders and pundits have called for a name change. Opponents have launched a legal challenge intended to deny the team federal trademark protection. A bill introduced in Congress in March would do the same, though it appears unlikely to pass. But a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that nationally, “Redskins” still enjoys widespread support. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens, File)
