Thing is if it starts at one word, where does it end? Players should be alowed to say what they want to on the field. They are all "professional" players and should be at the point where trash talk doesn't get to them.

Can't say it in any other workplace in America.

Why would it be any different in the NFL?

Sure.

Honestly, the offensiveness of a word loses credibility with me when the ethnicity of the person that uses it weighs so heavily on whether someone is offended or not.

I thought about that for a few minutes and it seems Whites that use that word would be the obvious choice. Latinos, Blacks, and Asians using the word doesn't seem to cause as much of an issue.

A white comedian is more apt to get crickets than a Latino comedian when the audience is black.

A black man calling out a white man for using it is justified, a black man calling out a black man for using it is Uncle Tom.

I hope you're not black, only us "whites" can use that word.

Re: With N-word ban, NFL proposes to police language

Regardless of how you feel about this super-charged evocative word, this is just yet another example of Roger Goodell leading from behind, stumbling and bumbling, closing the gate after the horse has already long ago left the barn (the Ritchie Incognito and Riley Cooper incidents).

They should change the name of the league from NFL to CYA.
