I heard a caller on 105.7 this morning on this topic going off about racism, like how many more black people died as a result of slavery than jews in the holocaust, and so on. I can get that, but I don't see what that has to do with this issue. I seriously doubt ANY white players use the N-word; that would be suicide (not to mention horrible - I recently watched "42," and the scene where the Phillies' manager is heckling Robinson with the N-word actually made my skin crawl). It is black players who use the word, and to have Goodell and the primarily white owners' competition committee deciding it is racist strikes me as condescending and paternalistic, as well as an empty PC gesture.
On top of that, the enforcement during a game is going to be highly problematic. The more I think about it, the more ridiculous it becomes. If there is any common sense among that group, they will not follow through on the idea.
