Mike Wilbon thinks NFL shouldn’t police N-word Dan Leberfeld
ESPN’s Mike Wilbon has a big problem with the proposed rule that would penalize NFL players for using the N-word during games.
“You’re gonna have a league with no black owners and a white commissioner — middle-aged and advanced-aged white men — say to black players, mostly — because that’s what we’re talking about — you can’t use the N-word on the field of play, or we’re gonna penalize you,” Wilbon said on ESPN. “I’ve got a massive problem with that. I know there are black men of the same age… who say no, you’ve got to take this word out of the workplace. I understand that. But I don’t want it enforced like this.”
