NFL games aren't for the faint of heart. Harsh language is known to fly around in the trenches as emotions run high during the heat of battle.

Well, players better start watching their language and minding their P's and Q's if the NFL passes a new rule next month.

John Wooten, who heads the Fritz Pollard Alliance, expects the NFL Competition Committee to adopt a new rule making it a penalty if a player uses the 'N' word on the field. The first use will draw a 15-yard penalty. The second use will lead to an ejection.

"We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the equipment room to the locker room. Secretaries, PR people, whoever, we want it eliminated completely and want it policed everywhere," Wooten said, whose organization works to spread through the NFL. "I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do."

The competition committee will rule on the proposal next month, and if it passes, it will be presented to the league owners. The league didn't comment on the proposal, but has been taking special care to examine workplace policies in the wake of the Wells report, which exposed the Dolphins organization.

John Wooten Chairman of the Fritz Pollard AllianceBorn on December 5, 1936 in Riverview, Texas, John attended Carlsbad High School in Carlsbad, New Mexico. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.

Drafted in 1959 by the Cleveland Browns, his addition to the team proved to be one of the most important drafts in the history of the Cleveland Browns. John played for the Cleveland Browns from 1959 to 1967, then the Washington Redskins from 1967 to 1968. During the off seasons of 1960 – 1963 he was a junior high school teacher at Addison Junior High School in Cleveland, Ohio.

John’s NFL career did not stop on the field. He continued by becoming the Director of Pro Scouting with the Dallas Cowboys from 1975 to 199l. He created Player Programs/Player Development programs for the NFL in 1991. He served as vice President/Player Personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1992 and also served as Assistant Director, Pro/College Scouting for the Baltimore Ravens until his retirement in 2002.

John has been involved with the NFL for some forty-eight years and currently serves as the Chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, an affinity group who works in conjunction with the NFL as it relates to minority hiring in coaching, scouting and front office positions.

I think its a great idea.  I hope more organizations do the same.


No other ethnic/religious or racial group "endears" derogatory slang like we do.  If we demand others not to use it, we shouldn't use it either.

Cool.
Is there a list of offensive language already or is it just this word?

There was a player fined recently for using a derogatory name for gay.

Same thing.

rule out all profanity across the board... do not disproportionately penalize the black people.
