NFL may propose ban for use of N-Word on the field.
 
Quote:

The chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that monitors racial diversity in the NFL, believes the league will soon enact a rule that will penalize a player 15 yards for using the N-word on the field during a game.

John Wooten said he expects the measure to be supported by the NFL Competition Committee during meetings next week in Naples, Fla. If the rule change is endorsed by the committee, it will be presented to owners for a vote.

Something I always thought was funny was the amount of censoring of the N-word NFL Films probably has to cut out of it's content when going through it.

I wonder what the on-field official will say if this rule if violated.

Bert Macklin 02-28-2014 10:14 AM

if they did that we wouldn't have a league left.

Really NFL :facepalm:

gsorace 02-28-2014 01:18 PM

How are you going to do this and then have a team called the Redskins?

BuddyCHRIST 02-28-2014 09:04 PM

With all the curse words players use...this is the one they single out...

Babylon 02-28-2014 09:55 PM

Do they ban whitey and honky too?

I imagine it would just be called unsportsmanlike conduct or taunting, they wouldn't announce it as "use of the n-word" or something. I'm indifferent on banning certain language, but it seems stupid to me to single out that word and leave other profane words.

Naughty words in sports. This is obviously a problem that needs to be addressed. I for one am glad that the NFL is making this a priority. Think of the kids!

What if the white players call each other cracker?

White people don't address each other in the frame of a derogatory terms.

it will only be a penalty if they say the phrase, "cracker ass mothaf***a"

What is this world coming to? That's just what the NFL needs, more rules. The rule book is already convoluted enough and putting officials in terrible spots to begin with. Now middle aged white guys are going to have to tell a roided up black guy to stop saying the n word when he's in the middle of physical combat? This will go over well.

Football is physical and psychological warfare on Sunday's in the NFL. We should all know this is coming from sponsors because the NFL can't bleep out every expletive on a live broadcast. It wouldn't ruin the game but would definitely change the outcomes of many games.

**** Goodell and these rule changes, he's ruining the game of football.

Brothgar 03-01-2014 10:30 AM

Honestly I think this is the best rule Goodell has come up with yet. Just over the past year the NFL has had three controversies involving the N-Word. Banning it is a proactive approach before it becomes a major thing.

Gotta earn that big contract of his.

This one is dumb. You can't legislate the stupid out of people.

D-Unit 03-01-2014 12:49 PM

This is awesome!!! When the refs aren't looking, someone can yell "N****"! and then point to a guy on the other team for saying it. 15 yard penalties ALL GAME LONG!!!!!

Down by 5, 4th and inches, 1 second left, ball on the goal line... Ready to pound it in.... What's the Over/Under on how many guys yell out the word trying to blame the offense? Defense has NOTHING to lose.

Trogdor 03-01-2014 01:56 PM

I'm just thankful Roger Goodell is the sole person responsible for fining players, creating new penalties, making new safety initiatives, etc. He's definitely earning his contract with all the work he does by himself.

Totally sarcasm if you didn't pick up on it. If you need a figurehead to blame I guess it's cool to curse Goodell but to think he is anything more than a mouthpiece for the owners is really stupid.

*shrugs*

As far as the rules it is honestly REALLY sad that we need something like this.

Jvig43 03-01-2014 02:09 PM

speaking of picking up on sarcasm........

Yeah, kind of ridiculous.

Yes because we should just ignore all racist tendencies as opposed to fixing one.

MassNole 03-01-2014 04:26 PM

How about we ignore the Redskins name and this rule change and not **** with game for one damned off-season.

Really shouldn't there be a rule for all racial slurs? Or only one and leave white and Hispanic players as fair game.

Timbathia 03-01-2014 04:32 PM

Any type of racist slur is banned in basically every sport around the world except this one.

Isn't soccer well known for slurs on the field?

Racist slurs are not a part of the game. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't understand the game.
