Clay Matthews Says It'll Be Hard To Eliminate N Word


Its one thing for the NFL to say that it wants to take the N-word off the playing field. Its quite another for the NFL to actually accomplish that feat.

The NFL is contemplating instituting a rule that would cost teams 15 yards if caught using the N-word. Matthews gave his thoughts on how easy getting rid of the N-word will be:

I think its used as a term of endearment between players, and I think its so much a part of pop culture and culture in general that its going to be very hard to eliminate that from the game, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews told Dan Patrick on Tuesday. I think is more something that should come from the locker room, organization, and team leaders to remove it if they see fit."
