Anti-Redskins Ad Airs During NBA Finals

Joel Riley and I talked about this on Wednesday morning. We didn't see it in Columbus, but major markets, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and of course, Washington DC did.

The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation in California purchased air time during game three of the NBA Finals Tuesday night and ran this ad, aimed at getting the NFL's Washington Redskins to change their controversial name. After it aired, it quickly circulated nationwide via social media.

It will be interesting to see how or if the NFL or Washington owner Daniel Snyder will respond.
