    Stupid. Might as well flag use of any inappropriate language.

    We need more flags for this:

    I expect removing the n-word from locker rooms and the game field is a laudable goal. But, this particular method will not pass.

    Is it a flag if a black player says it to a black player? Because we would never get a game done.

    What about when a ref says it to a player?

    Exactly.....blacks argue to no end that the n word if perfectly acceptable between black people......very strange logic but I was wondering the exact same thing.....black on black n word use count or not count? ....so confusing using their logic.

    I'm sure the rule is everyone. Can't be mad at it, I mean it's a business/job setting. Not like I can go around saying it at work. But we know what it's all about. White people and their "well you guys say it" nonsense. Always wanna do what other cultures do. Whites in the south call each other "redneck" i don't use the word bc I know me saying it is offensive . My mex homies in Cali call one another "beaners" I don't use it. Women see there female friends "on ***** how u been" I don't say it bc they'd take offense from a man say it. But another white rule made because their in a **** storm when they say it. Etc etc.
    Plus with Michael Sam coming in I'm sure they're just preparing themselves

    Disagree. Most of it is good.

    My issue is where do we draw the line?

    John Wooten, head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, told CBS Sports that he expects the league to make it an automatic 15-yard penalty if a player uses the N-word on the field, and an automatic ejection for a player who does it twice.
    Note this seems to be an outside the NFL driven thing.

    Wooten’s comments were strictly about the N-word, but if the NFL is going to implement this rule, other racial slurs would presumably be included as well, along with slurs that are homophobic, sexist or religious in nature.

    However, the NFL may find such a rule tougher for its officials to implement than it sounds. Would the NFL provide every player, coach and official with a list of words that can’t be used? And who would determine which words make the list? Some slurs may be considered offensive in some contexts but not in others. Members of a racial or ethnic groups sometimes use slurs among themselves, with no offense intended or taken. If one black player uses the N-word toward another black player, and a white official hears it and throws a penalty flag, that may open a can of worms the NFL would rather avoid.
    Pretty much what I think. What's the line? What can of worms does this open?
