    It's a dumb rule, but that doesn't mean it will be abused.

    So you think if they flag someone who didn't say anything, that will never come to light?

    Anyway, I was just referring to this "The NFL is rigged" nonsense. It is about one point lower than Illuminati conspiracies on the stupidity scale.

    There were a lot of games last year where players got flagged for trash talking.

    Glad we no longer have Finnegan anymore. Richard Sherman better watch out.

    Yeah. But apparently now the refs have been told to make it a "point of emphasis" this season (which IMO will mean a lot of suspect flags). Also, it doesn't just say "foul language". The article said "Players will now be flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct if they verbally abuse an opponent in any way."

    Sounds like it's only going to get worse (/more strict) this year.

    preseason is gonna be brutal with this crap

    then it will go away just as soon as a big market team gets a taste of it. By Thanksgiving it will be back to normal


    My understanding is that the Refs will drop a flag basically anytime anyone other than the captain speaks to them or about them

    Well on the one hand you have what the NFL is saying. And on the other you have what JCBRAVE is saying.

    God if they actually flag somebody for talking trash to another player... What are we afraid of, someone's feelings getting hurt?

    I find it very ironic, that the league puts this out being Michael Sam just got drafted... think about it the league has made it very clear they will not condone homophobic language and that's what this is all about Im sure...
