WASHINGTON - Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder says its time to put some money behind his claim that his teams nickname honours Native Americans. Snyder said Monday hes creating a foundation to assist American Indian tribes, even as some in that community continue to assert that the name "Redskins" is offensive. "Its not enough to celebrate the values and heritage of Native Americans," Snyder said in a letter to the teams fans. "We must do more." The letter states the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation will "provide meaningful and measurable resources that provide genuine opportunities" for Native Americans. The announcement did not state whether Snyder will personally donate any money to the foundation and gave no other financial details. A major opponent of the nickname said Snyders move was "somewhere between a PR assault and bribery." Suzan Shown Harjo, a lead figure in a long-running case that seeks to strip the Redskins of their federal trademark protection, told The Associated Press that Snyder is showing the "same arrogance" that hes shown previously when defending the nickname. "Im glad that hes had a realization that Native Americans have it tough in the United States," Harjo said. "All sorts of people could have told him that, and have been trying to tell him that for a long time." Snyder again gave no indication he plans to change the teams name. He said he believes "even more firmly" the name "captures the best of who we are and who we can be, by staying true to our history and honouring the deep and enduring values our name represents." Snyder has come under unprecedented pressure to change the name over the last year. President Barack Obama told the AP in October he would consider changing the name if he owned the team. Harjo said the refusal to budge on the name will offset, at least in part, the good that is done with the foundations money. "Will (the foundation) do much of anything? No. But it probably wont hurt," Harjo said, "except that it will continue the cycle of negative imaging of Native American people in the public arena." In the letter, Snyder said he and his staff visited 26 reservations over the last four months. He listed poverty, illness, drug abuse, violence and lack of basic infrastructure as among the problems faced by Native Americans. "Ive listened. Ive learned. And frankly, its heart wrenching," the letter said. Harjo wondered why Snyder, who has owned the team since 1999, is only just now reaching out to Native Americans. "Its sort of an admission that he was losing the PR battle," she said. "So now hes gone out to find the real story — as if someone was hiding the real story about pressing needs in Indian country."

The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week. [url=http://www.officialseattleseahawksfootball.com/authentic-justin-coleman-jersey-womens]Justin Coleman Jersey[/url] . Scrivens stopped 48 shots and captain Andrew Ference scored in overtime as the Oilers pulled off a 4-3 upset of the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti refuted a report suggesting he and other team officials tried to persuade the NFL to be lenient on Ray Rice after the running back was arrested in February for knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator.Bisciotti, who rarely met with the media before the Rice saga, said Monday he felt it necessary to respond to an ESPN story last week that described he, president Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome pushing Commissioner Roger Goodell for leniency for Rice.Their accusations didnt jibe with what we know is fact, said Bisciotti, who, sitting in a raised leather chair square in the middle of a raised stage at his teams training facility, also denied that he contacted the league on Rices behalf.I dont think the league would take too kindly to us badgering them, Bisciotti said. I didnt really care. If it was going to be a precedent-setting (suspension of) four or six games, I would have told Ray not to appeal it.I expected four of six games and I was surprised as everybody else that it was two.The two games were Rices original suspension by the league a€” the Ravens took no action at the time a€” for punching Janay Palmer in a casino on Feb. 15. But after a video surfaced on Sept. 8 showing the violent attack, Rice was released by the team and suspended indefinitely by the league. He has appealed his suspension.Bisciotti acknowledged that the backlash over the handling of the domestic violence case is by far the biggest crisis hes faced since taking over the team 14 years ago, but defended the integrity of his organization.When your integrity is questioned, its pretty humbling, Bisciotti said. Last week it was our competence being questioned. Now its our integrity.The 54-year-old owner criticized the ESPN report for being biased, saying of the anonymous sources quoted in the piece: Its clear from the subject matter that its Rays attorney, its Rays agent and its Rays friends. They are building a case for reinstatement.The report was the latest development in the saga that has Bisciotti and his organization on its heels.As I stated in our letter to you on September 9, we did not do all we should have done, and no amount of explanation can remedy that. But there has been no misdirection or misinformation by the Ravens, Bisciotti said in a 15-point statement to the fans released before the news conference.ESPN also reported that Darren Sanders, the teams director of security, was given a detailed description of what occurred in the elevator within hours of Rices arrest in February.In the team statement, Sanders said it was more than a week after the incident before an officer described the grainy tape. Sanders did not say he ever received a copy of the video, or ever saw it before it became public.ddddddddddddThe officer could not tell from the video whether Ray slapped her or punched her, Sanders said.Critics say that shouldnt matter; that the Ravens had enough evidence.Rice was arrested on assault charges, and a police summons stated that Rice had struck Palmer with his hand, rendering her unconscious. Rice has been accepted into New Jerseys pretrial intervention program, which enabled him to avoid jail time and could result in having the charge expunged from his record after he meets the requirements.ESPN reported that that Bisciotti sent a text message to Rice offering him a job after the was done with football, and that Rice told friends he was incredibly insulted in that it appeared to be an offer of hush money.In the statement, Bisciotti said, I believed he was, at heart, a good person, that he was capable of redemption, and I wanted to tell him I would be supportive of him.Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome reiterated in the teams statement that Rice had been honest with him about what happened.When I met with Ray to discuss the incident, I asked him one question: Did you hit her? He responded: Yes, Newsome said. I later said Ray didnt lie to me because he told me he hit her, and that is what the video later showed_although the video was much more violent than what I had pictured.Ravens coach John Harbaugh denied he asked that Rice be released after the first videotape surfaced, as the report suggested.I did not recommend cutting Ray Rice from the team after seeing the first videotape, the coach said in the release.Added Newsome: Neither John nor anyone else ever recommended cutting Ray Rice before we saw the second videotape on September 8.Still, there remain questions as to whether the NFL had access to the video, and the ESPN report said Cass never asked for a copy of the video.Bisciotti said, Thats where we failed. ... I lacked a whole lot of interest and had zero desire to see that tape. If I had, I might have said Im not doing a thing until we see it.The Associated Press has reported the video was sent to NFL offices in April, and the league subsequently hired former FBI director Robert Mueller to look into how the NFL sought and handled evidence in the domestic violence case.Bisciotti hopes the Ravens and the NFL learn from their mistakes.The question is, What are we going to do next year as a team, and what is the league going to do next year or the next time this happens? he said. I would lose faith in the league if this happened next year and their response is unsatisfactory. If Im asking people to give me another shot, then I certainly would ask you to give the league office another shot.__AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL [url=http://www.oriolesjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB Orioles Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.redsoxjerseyscheap.com/]Red Sox Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.yankeesjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Yankees Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.raysjerseyscheap.com/]Rays Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.bluejaysjerseyscheap.com/]Blue Jays Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.whitesoxjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB White Sox Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.indiansjerseyscheap.com/]Indians Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.tigersjerseyscheap.com/]Tigers Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.astrosjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB Astros Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.angelsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Baseball Angels Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.athleticsjerseyscheap.com/]Athletics Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.marinersjerseyscheap.com/]Mariners Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.texasrangersjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Baseball Rangers Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.bravesjerseyscheap.com/]Braves Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.marlinsjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Marlins Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.metsjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Mets Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.philliesjerseyscheap.com/]Phillies Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.nationalsjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB Nationals Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cubsjerseyscheap.com/]Cubs Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.redsjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Reds Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.brewersjerseyscheap.com/]Brewers Jerseys From China[/url] [url=http://www.piratesjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB Pirates Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.stlouiscardinalsjerseyscheap.com/]Wholesale MLB Cardinals Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.diamondbacksjerseyscheap.com/]Diamondbacks Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.rockiesjerseyscheap.com/]Rockies Jerseys For Sale[/url] [url=http://www.dodgersjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Dodgers Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.padresjerseyscheap.com/]Discount Padres Jerseys Online[/url] [url=http://www.sanfranciscogiantsjerseyscheap.com/]Giants Jerseys For Sale[/url] ' ' '
