Steelers safety Ryan Clark joined Booger and Rich to talk about a possible rule change from the NFL that would penalize players 15 yards for using the N-word on the field.

Clark doesn’t think that the NFL can implement the rule in the league. He told Booger and Rich that he agrees that the N-word should not be used in the locker room and around the practice facility, however the field of play is different. Clark says the NFL can’t control what players say during a game and on the field is not the time to push a social agenda. The game is too intense and too violent and their job is to win games.

The N-word is still used prevalently on the field Clark said. Teammates and others use it toward him but Clark said he’s never heard a player of another race use it. The term is used socially just like it is in society. Clark says it is a term of endearment.

Overall, Clark says that the NFL is overstepping its bounds with this rule.
