NFL to Add 15yd Penalty for Epithets

In a move too endearing to this bleeding-heart lefty’s love for all things politically correct to be ignored, the National Football League is moving towards adoption of a rule that will impose penalties for the use of racial slurs and epithets by players on the field during games. Specifically, over-the-line trash-talk will, if the rule is adopted, cost your team fifteen yards.

What’s the northern Virginia angle to this?

Well…

Penalty

At fifteen yards each, Mr. Snyder, your team is starting in the parking lot.

I'm the voice from left of center at FirewallNOVA. Sometimes pretty far left, sometimes pretty close to center. Sometimes maybe not left of center at all. But, mostly, I'm a bleeding-heart liberal or, if not, the crowd on the other side tends to think I am. I can live with that.
