They want to penalize players 15 yards who use the "N" word on the field.
So they want to ban this racial slur, but they are OK with using a racial slur as a team name in DC?
:NFL: :smackshead:

I don't think any words should be illegal...anywhere

I try not to use the n***** word, but sometimes I need to and I don't think I should be penalised for it.

NBA star Metta World Peace has an issue with old white guys saying what he can say. He claims in his neighborhood n***** isn't a slur. It is a term of endearment.

I try not to use the n!gger word, but sometimes it slips out in the normal course of conversation and I don't think I should be penalised for it.


Don't worry. You have zero chance of being in the NFL. Generally speaking, employers have the power to punish people for using racial slurs in the work place. Nothing new here.

R,
Good point, almost any other workplace, you would be called into HR for using the term. And if your company doesn't discipline you for using a racial slur, you probably don't want to be working there.

You all know i'm a classy guy, and I don't use that word often, but I'd like to reserve the right to use it when I need to. Like the C word it is the proverbial nuculear option and should only be used only on special occiasions to achieve maximun impact on your victim or opponant
