What will be the N-Word penalty in NFL?
February 24 , 2014
Trash talking on the field is common but the use of the N-word should not be taken lightly by the NFL.
Head of a group John Wooten said he expects owners to come up with a new rule in order to punish users of the word. "I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do," he said. "We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the equipment room to the locker room."
The league hasn't commented as of yet but is looking to make some changes after a Miami Dolphins coach was fired for allowing a "pattern of harassment."
