Dan Snyder said he was fulfilling a lifelong dream in 1999. The 34-year-old billionaire became the owner of the Washington Redskins, the team he grew up rooting for. He loved the team's history. The color scheme. The name. But Mr. Snyder's team announced Monday what he once vowed to never do. The Washington Redskins are changing the team's name. Amidst the undertow of a nationwide reckoning on race and history, the name “Redskins” will be retired upon the conclusion of its ongoing review, putting an end to a moniker that has stood for 87 years. The logo will also be retired. The new name has not been revealed yet.
