Default NFL Profanity Penalty Targets Players Who Cuss Directly At Competitors

NFL Profanity Penalty Targets Players Who Cuss Directly At Competitors
Quote:
NFL officials are waging an all out war against profanity. During last weeks Seahawks-Panthers game referee’s had to constantly remind players about their use of cuss words. In one specific event referee’s even flagged Seattle’s K.J. Wright for mouthing a swear word at a Carolina player.

While Wright’s penalty was technically a taunting call the NFL Competition Committee chose to focus on “verbal abuse” caused by the action.

Speaking to ESPN League VP of officiating Dean Blandino revealed on Saturday that officials are attempting to stop “actions [verbal or otherwise] directed at an opponent.”

While NFL players are free to swear the NFL will not tolerate when those cuss words are specifically directed at a player...

So to be clear it's no longer a football game. It's a tea party.

This is a nothing story. You aren't allowed to taunt whether you cuss or not. You don't even have to speak. JJ's salute and denied finger waggle would draw taunting flags if he directed them at the QB or the OLmen he just beat. Just a writer filling space.

It's not a football game anymore. I was at the Bucs/Saints game today and the Bucs kept getting flagged for basically playing football. One flag was for a hit on Brees that caused a fumble. It was a tone setting play where the Bucs would have had the ball inside the 20, however they called a 15 yard personal foul. I get the leading with the helmet stuff but it appears now you can get flagged for hitting someone too hard.

The game is turning into soccer. I guess pretty soon NFL players will start flopping around faking injuries just to get calls.
