Former coach and current NBC announcer Tony Dungy has also decided not to use the R word when referring to Washington. Good job Coach D.
The Networks have not taken a stand and for the most part are letting the announcers decide for themselves. It appears that some broadcasters are willing to take a stand for what is right while others are afraid to make waves. The world needs more people like Simms and Dungy if it is ever to become a better place.
