But honky redneck cracker is OK?
No. That's a slur too.
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.
You just got penalized for using the word, "sucker".
That falls under the category of reperations...
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?
Don't everyone go Michael Sam all over the place please
Every player wears a mic now?
What happens when Matt Stafford says to Calvin Johnson: "Nice Catch My N----r!!"
Are we not allowed to say ni***r anymore either?
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.
watch more football tonto
It's only going to get worse when they start flagging for 'Yo Mama' insults...
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.
if you wanna fine a guy or possibly suspend him ok but to call a penalty i think is bullcrap.
Maybe they can get the Gestapo to help them enforce the rules.
They made it illegal to fly the confederate flag here in Mississippi.. And at Ole Miss College they had to do away with the Rebel mascot, colonel Reb
The level of sensitivity is at goober level highs IMO
Unsportsmanlike Conduct on @smeags for using an injun slur like Tonto.
Separate names with a comma.
