NFL may impose 15-yard penalties for racial slurs on the field
#1
Quote: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.

What about the black players?

If our justice system is any indication, 15 years in prison.

That shit is getting out of hand. What's next, penalties for giving dirty looks?

Their goal is to eliminate the N-word entirely, no matter what race the person saying it is... however, I can't say I've ever heard it in an NFL setting. I'm sure the players are saying it on the field and in the locker room, but it is not like they're dropping it in interviews or on the field to the point where it is being picked up by the mics.

This is going to be impossible to enforce. If a black player makes a great play and another black player responds "thats my n_" and the rep throws a flag get ready for the horror show.
