The Attorney General office of New Jersey and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) are planning to enforce a new rule that will ban harassing conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or religion in sports and will not be tolerated.

The “trash talk” ban will affect nearly 500 high schools, 250,000 student athletes and tens of thousands of coaches come this Fall.

Question is: is this ban really going to stop the trash talking that has become a pastime for most athletes?
