CYBERSPACE (AP) — The Washington Redskins were hoping to gain ground on an effort by a U.S. Senator to force the NFL team to change its name.

But instead, the team has been thrown for a loss.

The team asked fans to tweet Senator Harry Reid to show their support for the nickname. But many told Reid they support his call for owner Dan Snyder to “do what is morally right” and change the name.

Snyder has vowed never the change the name, which many find offensive to Native Americans.
