"Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name.

Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. RICHMOND, Va. -- While he auditions for the Washington Redskins yet again, Kirk Cousins will be paid almost $1.25 million per game. Thats a lot of money to figure out whether youre interested in having a long-term relationship with your quarterback.Only the second signal-caller to play a?full season under the franchise tag since it was instituted in 1993 (Drew Brees was the first), Cousins received a 2,923 percent raise, from $660,000 last season to $19.95 million on a one-year deal, according to ESPN Stats & Information. However, even after Cousins, whom the team drafted and developed, had arguably the greatest year statistically for a passer in Redskins history, management still has doubts about him.For Cousins to get the multiyear contract he believes he deserves, he must convince the Redskins hes not a one-hit wonder.Great, he had one year, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said at the beginning of training camp. There have been a lot of quarterbacks in the history of the league that have had good, solid, one-year seasons.Under the collective bargaining agreement, the Redskins werent obligated to give Cousins what he wanted -- but theyre in dangerous territory now. If you have a top-tier quarterback in a quarterback league, you dont risk angering him. How the situation is resolved could determine the direction of the franchise for a decade.With Cousins leading the offense, things have been good recently. He was the biggest reason the Redskins won the NFC East last season despite ranking 28th in the league in defense and 30th in yards per rush at only 3.7. Cousins, 27, led the NFL with a 69.8 completion percentage, becoming the first Redskins quarterback to lead the league in that stat since Sonny Jurgensen did it in 1970. Cousins ranked sixth in total QBR and eighth in yards per attempt, and he set Redskins single-season marks for passing yards (4,166) and completions (379).Mike Shanahan wasnt surprised. When the two-time Super Bowl winner coached the Redskins, he drafted Cousins. Shanahan said years ago that Cousins would be a top-10 passer. A lot of people thought I was crazy, but I know what I saw, Shanahan told ESPN.com recently.When youve been around the great ones, there are certain things that jump out at you, and I could see it very quickly with Kirk. The awareness, the ability to make quick decisions, the arm strength -- making all the throws with very little leverage -- the quick release ... we saw it all in practice from Day 1.But its also the intangibles. Hes very competitive. He has the courage. Hell hang in the pocket, focus on the defense, and still be able to slide and feel and go through his reads. Then theres innate intelligence you have to have; Kirk is extremely bright. And one of the biggest things, and Ive seen this in all the great quarterbacks Ive been around, is that the buck stops with Kirk. He takes accountability. Hell put the blame all on himself. Hes already a top-10 quarterback and hell be in the top five. Hes going to be a perennial Pro Bowler.Well, Shanahan is all in on Cousins. Of course, the Redskins arent interested in Shanahans opinion. Among the teams current decision-makerss, no one stood on the table for Cousins in the offseason, and thats why the sides never got close on a long-term deal.dddddddddddd Talk to people in the organization, and several will tell you that Cousins only had nine good games. At the NFL scouting combine in February, Redskins officials were playing down Cousins accomplishments to their counterparts on other teams.Bottom line: The Redskins dont totally believe in Cousins. They also couldnt permit him to become an unrestricted free agent. Now, Cousins has to do it again. And again and again, Gruden said.Its about having two, three, four years, he said. Luckily for us, were in a position to look at him another year.Although Cousins is way too smart to negotiate in public or say anything that would potentially anger owner Daniel Snyder -- Im not lying awake at night. I got a pretty good raise, Cousins said -- he often has said he wants to be where hes wanted. The only reason Cousins is with the Redskins is because Shanahan and his son, Kyle, who spent four seasons as the teams offensive playcaller, pushed to draft him in the fourth round in 2012 after Snyder and team president Bruce Allen traded four high-round picks for the right to take quarterback Robert Griffin III second overall.Snyder doted on Griffin, who had a spectacular rookie season. But Griffin subsequently suffered a major knee injury, struggled in the pocket and became a divisive force within the organization. He is now trying to rebuild his career in Cleveland. Entering his fifth season, Cousins for the first time began training camp atop the depth chart and with a unified locker room following his lead. He even had a solid preseason game Thursday night; as ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim wrote, Cousins showed poise, good decision-making and going through his progressions at a solid pace.He doesnt have to worry about nobody on his heels, star wide receiver DeSean Jackson said. Were all behind him.The question is, for how long?If Cousins has another big year and the sides remain far apart in contract talks, the Redskins could use their franchise tag on him again. Cousins would receive a 20 percent raise over his current salary, taking him to $23.94 million in 2017. Cousins would get a 44 percent increase if the Redskins applied the tag a third time, putting his salary at more than $34.47 million in 2018.The more likely scenario is that if Cousins is tagged again and the sides fail to agree on an extension before 2018, Cousins would be traded. But theres a reason teams dont trade talented passers: There arent enough of them.It did surprise me that they didnt tie him up, and I expect him to play even better this season, Shanahan said. Look at Drew Brees. You think San Diego would have let him get away if they had to do it all over again? When you get guys like Kirk, you dont let them get away.In the NFL, theres nothing more important than getting it right at quarterback. Cousins isnt the quarterback Snyder wanted -- but hes the one the Redskins cant afford to lose. ' ' '
