Someone in the main loop of the Washington Redskins has come out and said they are in favor of the name change. 

The battle to change the name of the Washington Redskins may have just been fueled a bit more. Granddaughter of George Preston Marshall, who brought the professional football team to Washington in 1937 and gave the team its now controversial name, has expressed she would like the name changed.

50 State senators have sent letters to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell petitioning to have the name changed.
