When Major League Soccer suspended a player three games for using a gay slur, it followed its own policy of zero tolerance towards any sort of discrimination on the pitch. It dovetails quite nicely with the league's "Don't Cross the Line" campaign, unveiled this fall (video below).
When it comes to discrimination, we don't cross the line. No bullying. No racism. No sexism. No homophobia. No excuses. No exceptions. Don't cross the line.
