It also appears that, in America at least, the issue has become a "Hill to Die On" for racists, closet and otherwise. Not a good look for a sports organisation PR wise.

Dan Snyder (owner of the Washington franchise) has shown himself to be a bigot in this matter for decades. He plays the classic 'but I have black friends!' by having started a foundation ostensibly dedicated to the advancement of Native American interests, all whilst claiming that the name of the team he owns isn't offensive to anyone and is actually a tribute.

EDIT: and that foundation, as predicted, is a complete smokescreen - []
