    Re: Billy Packer on Charlie Rose

    In addition to the derogatory meaning of the word, the word "***" also means to get tired doing something. It was a correct usage of the word and in no way offensive.

    There is a good explanation of it in one of Bill Simmons' blog. Apparently it is used that way in England a lot. Being an old fart, Packer is still using the King's English.
