CLEVELAND – NFL players may have to start watching their mouths, if the NFL rules committee votes to punish teams and players who use the N-word.
The new rule is expected to be enacted at next month’s owners meeting.
If passed, every time a player is caught saying the N-word their team would be assessed a 15-yard penalty.
The player can be ejected from the game for a second infraction.
NewsChannel5’s Leon Bibb took no position on the NFL’s potential rule change, but did comment about the use of the N-word.
“I don’t use the N-word,” Bibb said. “It is a word for degradation and hate. I stay away from it. I would rather it not be used anywhere.”
