Violent sporting event no place for swearing, says parents group

A professional sport where 22 men pummel the living snot out of each other for 60 minutes is not the place for adults to use four-letter words, a TV watchdog group told reporters Monday. The Parents Television Council is asking the Federal Communications Commission to take action against Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco for swearing following a Super Bowl game in which he managed to survive being beaten to death by 11 people with only the aid of a helmet. "I don't mean to be a Grumpy Gus, but when my children are watching 300 pound men deliver skull-jarring hits and knee snapping tackles, I don't want them hearing that kind of language," said PTC spokesperson James Maher. "Kids should be able to watch people give each other brain injuries and paralysis without having to hear bad words."
