THE NFL's competition committee is contemplating issuing a 15-yard penalty for players using the N-word or other slurs on the field.
Yesterday, Heat forward Chris Bosh said he wouldn't mind if the NBA followed suit.
"Ban all slurs," said Bosh, who is African-American.
"It is in mainstream America now," he said of the N-word. "A lot of people say, 'I'm not racist because I use it in a friendly way.' Like I said, if you're going to use one word, put them all in there, use every slur, every negative curse word and that will kind of simplify it a little bit. I think it's too gray right now.' "
