The game is at an intense stage, athletes are in a mental game zone, language is at an extreme level. Every athlete is use to talking trash, however; the usage of profanity means its gone too far. Athletes choice of profanity usage can lead to them losing playing time, being ejected, suspended from a certain amount of games or kicked off the team. The chice of words not only effect the individual athlete, but the whole team. Having just voicing profanity words can spread like a contagion virus. Everyone on the team will began to have filthy language once fustration begans. Athletes need to find other words to put in those profanity slots. Also, athletes need to realize that the crowd is always looking and listening. Cameras and instant replay are everywhere, so "choose your words wisely" no matter if the situation gets rowdy.
