    I don't know if I just completely missed this or I'm just forgetting about it or what. But this Tennessean article mentioned the new emphasis/crackdown on "trash talk".
    I mean, what in the flippity f***?!?!?!? First off, insert "P.C. police" comment here. But more importantly, I see this being a major headache for teams across the league. So is it up to the individual refs discretion to determine what's over the line? ("MARK IT ZERO!!!")

    I can just see it now. This BS is going to cost us a big play or even a game.

    Easier way for nfl to manipulate the outcomes of the game so they can rig outcome wwe style. We won't have a chance at winning until we get new uniforms as that is a sign. Where did my tin foil hat go?

    what's wrong with what he said?

    how can they prove someone is guilty of this? there are replays of most fouls/holding, are they going to mic up everyone and replay the audio to confirm?

    it'll be abused, guarantee it.

    Where you been, this isn't new for 2014..

    Refs always hope to discourage foul language, but IDK if they've ever flagged it when it actually happens.

    Yea, but now it almost sounds as if any kind of cuss word directed at an opponent could draw a flag.

    I'm pretty sure in the past it had to be pretty awful to draw a flag... like racist stuff, talking about a deceased family member, etc.

    The only time I've seen trash talk get a player in trouble is when they put their facemask right against their opponent's facemask and start mouthing off.
