FILE - This Aug. 4, 2012 file photo shows a Washington Redskins football team staff member wheeling a bucket of helmets with logo off the field after a practice at NFL football training camp at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va. 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/Alex Brandon, File)
