Oneida Indian Nation representative Ray Halbritter speaks during a news conference, Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, in New York. Representatives of the Oneida have requested a meeting with all 32 NFL owners during Super Bowl week, hoping to persuade them to get the Washington franchise to drop the nickname Redskins. The Oneidas also asked for an amendment to league bylaws to prohibit franchises from naming a team with any term that is a racial epithet. Halbritter says the dictionary defines the word "redskins" precisely like that. (AP Photo/Louis Lanzano)
