Former NFL players have come out against the Broncos name after the team’s owners declined to include it in the name of the National Football League.
The name has long been an issue, as it was chosen for the league by the owners of the Denver Broncos, who have the power to choose the name, but were unable to do so due to a lawsuit.
Broncos owner Pat Bowlen told the Associated Press he is disappointed the name was not included.
“I’ve been a Broncos fan since I was a kid,” Bowlen said.
“I’ve never had any problem with it, so I’m disappointed.
I’m not going to change my mind about that.
I just don’t think that name is one that is appropriate for our organization.””
That’s the only way we can say we love the city of Denver.
I just don’t think that name is one that is appropriate for our organization.”
Broncos general manager Joe Ellis has said the name should be changed.
Ellis told the AP that the Broncos have been told by the NFL that there are other names that could be considered, including one for the National Basketball Association, which has a large Native American population.
Bowlen said the Broncos are considering the possibility of using another name in their name.
“We’re looking at a number of possibilities, and we’ll make a decision based on the information that we have,” Bowlens said.
Elis said the NFL told him there are a few other names being considered.
“So we’re not in the business of changing the name anytime soon.””
