The NFL hasn’t officially identified the persons who’ll attend on the league’s behalf Wednesday’s meeting with representatives from the Oneida Indian Nation.
Unofficially, the delegation includes Adolpho Birch, Jeff Pash, and Paul Hicks, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
Birch was directly involved in setting the meeting. Pash (pictured) serves as the league’s general counsel, and Hicks runs the NFL’s P.R. office.
Maske’s report doesn’t include Commissioner Roger Goodell on the list. Goodell reportedly met Tuesday with Redskins owner Daniel Snyder regarding the Redskins name.
The league plans, as we’re previously reported, to listen. Oneida Indian Nation plans to talk about its concerns regarding the name.
It’s unclear whether any progress will be made or, in light of the respective positions, whether it can be made.
