The NFL has said they will potentially enact a rule that penalizes players for using the N-word. If this does go through, the question buzzing around the sports world is whether it’s up to the NFL to enact this rule and whether the League should extend the rule to other inappropriate behavior such homophobic slurs. The other big question is what is going to happen to the team name Washington Redskins as many feel that “Redskins” on a team logo is just as offensive.
Plenty of rumors were swirling around the League the last few days concerning the “almost” trade of San Francisco 49er head coach Jim Harbaugh going to the Cleveland Browns. The trade did not happen but the real issue is whether or not Harbaugh wants to stay in SF and whether the front office will let him. Apparently there’s tension between the front office and Harbaugh. Harbaugh wants a new contract that pays him at a comparable rate to one of the best coaches in the League and the Niners don’t necessarily agree as the Team hasn’t won a Super Bowl with him yet.No comments
