    Can't wait to read the NFL's rule book and the list of words that are penalty worthy. Just imagine all of the words that have been used over the years. That sucker could be 10 pages long.

    Are they going to flag every Redskins player as soon as he walks on the field? Don't some people find the word "Redskin" offensive?

    neither ni***r, spick, kike, dago, jungle bunny, slant eyes, rag head. None of that is allowed anymore. Someone's feeling might get hurt.

    Better yet, what happens when Darnell Dockett yells the same thing to Larry Fitzgerald? One black saying it to another black on the field. Yellow flags followed by a fine from the NFL followed by a grievance being filed. This is one time I might sympathize with referees. They're in a no-win situation with this one.

    Joking aside this is a very good point. The R word is considered by many to be the equivalent to the N word. So what is the NFL proving here? They are shooting themselves in the foot. and another DC team will now have pay the price. I miss the Bullets

    if enough native americans watched football the nfl would give a crap about their concerns over the "redskins" name so they have nobody else but themselves to blame.

    I know there might be cultural differences, but UEFA (european soccer governing body) and FIFA have very strict rules against racism. A few years ago, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez received a 10-game ban for using a racist insult on an african player.

    Maybe they can get the Gestapo to help them enforce the rules.
