If anyone was wondering just where Redskins owner Dan Snyder stood on the team’s name change controversy, he penned a recent letter explaining why he is standing by the Redskins current brand.

In the new letter, he says he wanted to hear firsthand what Native Americans thought about the name and the logo.

He says he has taken the last four months to travel to 26 Tribal reservations across the United States to get a better understanding.

“But the fact is, too many Native American communities face much harsher, much more alarming realities.  They have genuine issues they truly are worried about, and our team’s name is not one of them,” Snyder says in the letter.
