If NBA can, why not the NFL?

Re "Area tribe makes its point" (Page A1, June 12): If the NBA can fine a team owner $2.5 million and make him sell his team for making racist remarks that are bad for business and damage the Clippers and NBA, why can't the NFL force the Washington football team's owner to change a team name that Webster's says is "usually offensive" and that half of the U.S. Senate, religious organizations and NAACP among others have urged a change of name? Does using that name for 82 years make it right?
