The NFL are considering a new rule that would see its players receive 15-yard penalties for the use of the N-word, but analyst Michael Wilborn is an opponent of the rule.
Live on television on Monday night he used the term to make his point to the world.
Wilbon is the co-host of the ESPN sports show Pardon The Interruption, and although he believes it beneficial to remove words like that from the NFL, his problem lies with the policing side and what issues it raises.
He also spoke about the key issue on ESPN's other show Outside The Lines.
This particular interview was used to discuss how many people reacted to his use of the N-word on Pardon The Interruption.
Wilbon talked about how his friends often use the word to describe Wilbon on an endearingly level. “It was absolutely endearing,” Wilbon said. “It is entirely to me about who uses it.”
