So is the penalty the same if a white player calls a black player that or is this penalty strictly for a black on black crime? Seems racist and foolish to me if that's the case.

Default Re: The "N word" ......

So what happens when a black player calls a white a Honkie.
Players have used whatever they can for ages to get under each others skin. I don't condone it, but where will it stop. As a athlete you should not let just words get you riled up. Not saying it is right, but most athletes have been called all kinds of names.
My mother used to say sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Some people need to get a little tougher or get a pacifier.

Should it stop - Yes

Should there be a rule / penalty for one specific word - No.

If a player calls out a ref in any derogatory way it should be a penalty.

Overall I think this is just something for all the talking heads to discuss in the off-season.

I've always preferred "cracker" as long as it's pronounced "crack-ah" and not "crack-er."

I can see a referee now...."personal foul on number 35 in blue for violating the league's speech code"...of course, number 35 will be black. He will be penalized for something he says in a congratulatory manner after a great play.

Not saying the N word should be said, but penalizing someone for it? That's dumb.
Technically yes but, being a professional athlete for an organization is a privaledge not a right. If the organizations want to ban the use or profane or derrogatory words, they have the right to do so. I can't use that language at my work or I will be terminated, first amendment right or not, because I have to follow the rules of my employer. Professional athletes are no different.

Default Re: The "N word" ......

How is it ok if the word is said ending with an "a" but it's racist if it's said ending with an "er" ?
I don't get it. Also, this word gets tossed around so much in music lyrics being no big deal, yet it's an issue all over again??

How about this... just don't say the word at all. Not in music, not as slang to greet your friends, nothing. Do this and nobody can pull the race card because of it.

Don't even substitute it with the word Ninja. Just my $.02

White people have been throwing a hissy fit over blacks being allowed to use the N word but not themselves for quite some time now. Looks like that will continue.

It's weird that they want to govern language in sports. Words only have power if they have meaning to the person that hears them. I think this is going to be a pandora's box for them, they'll start banning/penalizing all profanity and then hand gestures, and then negative defaming comments to anyone in the league, and then.....

It is interesting. I wanted to post the meaning of ****** to add perspective to this thread. When I googled it all the definitions only referred to the offensiveness of the word. ******'s actual definition is, a dirty person.

It's not a double standard in my opinion but a completely different meaning when black people use it talking about each other. So I am okay with the only black can say it and get away with it.

Well...so the NFL who has no openly gay athletes comfortable enough to come out...who has a black eye over the Dolphins - Incognito-Martin fiasco...who let at least one man involved in a murder come back to play, who paid their commish 44.2MM dollars last YEAR, who holds towns and cities hostage with threats of relocation of their teams to get what they want, who is awash in cash yet as an organization is exempt from federal taxes.....that NFL wants to take a stand on so called social issues? The same one who struck a deal with the NFLPA over concussions and injuries that is woefully under what the value should be...that NFL want's to get into this?


I am all for it, as soon as they give up their tax exempt status and stop acting like they are holier than thou.

A lot of black people don't like it either though. Even if it means something positive between black people the negative emotions tied to the word remain with it's use becoming popular. A lot people would like the to see the word the just become unpopular and go away. Then maybe after a long period of time perhaps the word will lose its ability to have much of an effect on people and become unoffensive ancient verbage with no real relevance to the present time. That is a course for black people figure out amongst themselves, since they are the ones that stand to be offended and they are the ones using the word as a term of solidarity between one another.
