(AP) The NFL is prepared to meet with an Indian tribe pushing for the Washington Redskins to drop the team’s nickname. Just not this week.

As league owners gathered Monday in the nation’s capital for their fall meetings, the Oneida Indian Nation held a symposium across town to promote their “Change the Mascot” campaign. Oneida representative Ray Halbritter said the NFL was invited to attend.

Instead, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said, a meeting has been scheduled for next month — and could happen sooner.

Should Obama be concerned now about name of Redskins?
