Anti-Racism Group Threatens Lawsuit Against University of Minnesota for 'Redskins' Name

Minneapolis, MN -According to a report from Sports Illustrated, the University of Minnesota is facing a potential lawsuit over the November 2nd Minnesota Vikings vs Washington Redskins game at TCF Bank Stadium.

According to the story, "The National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media announced Thursday that it may sue the university if it doesn't bar the "Redskins" name and associated face paint and jerseys from the stadium."

This report follows a slew of push back that we've already seen surrounding the Week 9 match up. To date, the University has a solid relationship with Minnesota's Native American Community.

The Minnesota Vikings have not commented on whether or not they will take action to appease the requests.
