Oneida Indian Nation Buys Ad Time On Dallas Cowboys' Radio Flagship To Oppose 'Redskins' Name

The controversy over the WASHINGTON REDSKINS' name is following the team to the DALLAS-FORT WORTH radio dial, as the club prepares to play the COWBOYS in ARLINGTON SUNDAY, reports the ASSOCIATED PRESS. The ONEIDA INDIAN NATION announced that it has purchased ads on the COWBOYS' radio flagship, CBS RADIO Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN)/DALLAS, urging the team to change its name.
The ad, called "Bipartisan," offers quotes from President OBAMA and Rep. TOM COLE (R-OK) calling the name "REDSKINS" offensive. The franchise's owner, DAN SNYDER (also owner of radio group RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING), has thus far resisted calls to drop the name.
