Default NFL warns teams about trash talk

CHICAGO (AP)—The NFL has warned players to cut out the trash talk, specifically when it threatens other players.

“Ray Anderson reminded players that comments of a physically threatening nature are always taken into account in evaluating discipline for any illegal physical contact on the field,” league spokesman Greg Aiello said Saturday.

Sweet! Well, then our "kids" will be ahead of the curve when orange slices and jucie boxes are given to all the players after the game!

Hope our coach's mom brings Oreos the first week of the season!
