This is what happens when you sleep in the same bed with Big Brother... you create a PC monster.

Steelers taking the best approach.  Get rid of it in your own practices and environments and then you don't have to worry about it on Sundays

I agree. If an organization has a problem with it's players language they should be able to handle the problem "in house".

As for the people comparing the language rules to their particular workplaces consider this; when you're at work you do not have to engage in intense physical aggression against your coworkers that could result in a career ending injury. I think making poor verbal decisions is understandable in this context.

I hate the N word when it's used in any negative way by ANYONE but we are well beyond our culture's event horizon for the word. You can't pretend it is not "there". Attempts to do so are exercises in pandering naiveity.

Well I can't imagine a sport that punishes a team for using the Spanish word for black.


Apparently you can't speak spanish very well. At the the very least you can't spell it. The pronunciation sounds like "neh-gro" and it is an adjective not a noun.

I'm suprised you're not banned yet.

No, but we do make decisions every day that affects the lives of many other people.  Because they are playing a sport does not mean they need to be able to use racial slurs in order to do their job.

Racial slurs directed at other players in a hateful way "Fug you, you (Insert racial slur here)" should be meant with more than a flag. It should be grounds for an ejection/fine/suspension, only because we as human beings need to be beyond that by now.

 

Words of endearment used in context, such as "Good play my nigga" should be left alone by the National Football League. This is an overreach.

So now referees are supposed to judge intent of the words use?

 

Goodbye football.  The game would become a boofest.

That's how that slang word was born, but apparently your to ignorant to realise I was saying that. Its ok small minds worry about small things.
