Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) said Thursday that the NFL commissioner and Washington Redskins owner should be ashamed of themselves for their continued resistance to changing the team’s name.

“The native people are winning, and I do not know what Roger Goodell of the NFL and Dan Snyder are waiting for,” Holmes Norton said on MSNBC. “Do they want to be kicked? Do they want to be dragged, kicking and screaming across the line? Shame.”

The District’s representative was one of the first lawmakers to call for the team to change its name. She said there is a growing resistance to the name in Washington.
