In response to NEGAME2's comment:
The Fritz Pollard Alliance, an influential group that promotes diversity and job equality in the NFL, called on players Thursday to stop using the N-word on the field after highly publicized incidents involving the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins.
Harry Carson and John Wooten, the organization's executive director and chair, respectively, released a statement saying a number of game-day officials commonly have heard players use the the N-word, from Charles Barkley and Michael Wilbon to Jay Z. S
"As former players (along with thousands of others) who have worked hard in different eras of the game to leave proud legacies for those who follow us, we are appalled and extremely disappointed to learn that the worst and most derogatory word ever spoken in our country is being used during games as well as casually in the locker room," the statement reads.
The Alliance also has called on the league to punish players who use the racial slur on the field through immediate ejections and subsequent fines, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
So?? And your point is?
How about some of the lyrics in rap music? How about certain tatoos? Aren't they every bit as offensive to many people as the "n word"? Where does it stop? This is a slippery slope to start down on.
and once again we agree to disagree. it's happened more than once during our time on this board. so I'll let it go at that.
