NEW YORK — Characterizing their meeting with the NFL about their disapproval of the use of Redskins by the Washington franchise as disappointing, representatives of the Oneida Indian Nation requested a meeting with all 32 NFL owners during Super Bowl week.

They hope to persuade the other team owners and Commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive.

The San Francisco Chronicle, meanwhile, became the latest publications to say it will no longer use the term “Redskins” when referring to Washington’s NFL team.
