Adam Schefter reported on NFL Network that the NFL's competition committee is considering a rule that would bar a player from wearing his hair long enough on the field to obscure his name on the back of his jersey. Players like Polamalu and Jaguars cornerback Rashaen Mathis would either need to get a haircut or figure out a way to stuff all that hair in their helmets throughout a game.


NFL forum is pretty dead recently, opinions on this?

i agree with both of you. i work at a fortune 500 company and am growing my hair out long enough to donate it to Lock of Love. the business side of it makes no sense, its pointless. it is the persons choice if he wants to grow it out.

why is long hair associated with thugness?? that doesn't make sense to me. i would be pissed if this rule went down.

I do not see the big deal of this. They said they wouldn't allow the players to wear their hair that long. Nowhere did it say they were going to force them to get haircuts. They just have to get bigger helmets and put it in a ponytail or some **** like that. I wouldn't know. I keep the head shaved.

Agreed, I also find it annoying when I can't read a name or a number on a jersey because hair is covering it.

They would never ask them to cut all their hair off, though they are perfectly allowed to. Just tuck it into the back of your shirt or helmet if you want to wear it long. Hell its probably safer that way as well.

You guys really need to stop crying over this.

The NFL benefits from certain players like Polamalu having different hair, it creates an image for that player and intrigue immediately. Lets not pretend that the NFL is that business like on the field for players, even for coaches who they let go unshaven or wear cut up hoodies.

This would be the stupidest rule In place if it goes through, some of those hair styles make a players personality, while some have been growing them out for YEARS because of their culture and/or Religion. the only reason Atari Bigby didn't go to his Hometown School of THE U was because of their rule that all freshman had to cut there hair, I cant imagine how pissed he'd be now if told he had to cut it after, close to a decade of growing it out. I think this would be an injustice to the players, Why take away something else they can do to express themselves? They can't celebrate, and can't were were certain socks or gloves without being fined, now they can't wear their hair the way they want it? Gimme a break, BS man.

First off, many of my favorite players have dreads. Second, if it's covering their nameplate, go ahead and cut it a few inches. I'm all for it if it helps announcers and refs know who it is. I know who it is so it doesn't really matter to me. If it truly effects the ability to know who it is versus another guy then go for it. Some players will be mad. I won't really pick a side. If the NFL says they have to get it down to the edge of their helmet then I'll complain.

I could really care either way if they put this rule in place or not. I think its pretty lame but again I dont care. It says you either need to get a haircut or figure out how to stuff all your hair in your helmet... I dont have dreads so I dont know but I cant imagine some players being able to do that with alot of really long hair so whats the other option....... your forced to cut your hair or I guess you dont play. They dont say it but again thats what it basically boils down to.

Dumb rule but should cut their hair that only blocks the name on your back, you could always fix it up with pony tail, or something like that. I think the safety thing is if someone like T.P. is running and the only thing you can grab him by is his hair its fair, its part of the uni. He runs full speed you grab at his hair like a hard jerk at it, either
A) you end up with hand full of hair
B) You see his head jerk back and his legs go up in the air and him land on his back

Anyways kind of dumb rule kind of yeah maybe could be a problem.

I used to have seriously long hair....almost to my waist. My job at the time prohibited long hair, but hats were allowed. So I'd put it in a ponytail and either tucked it inside a baseball cap or tuck it down the back of my shirt, and it was completely unnoticeable.

In terms of the daily B.S. players have to deal with day-to-day, something like this is waaaaay down on the scale.....right next to the rule about keeping the socks pulled up. Stupid, but trivial. If they have to tuck their hair in, then so be it.

This is such a non-issue.

long hair under helmet=helmet not fitting properly.

When a helmet doesnt fit properly, concussions are had alot easier.

See Amani Toomer.

If you come back with "Well Troy P. and Mathis have long hair and they don't get concussions"- compare the impact of a WR getting hit and how often to a DB

I'm glad to know you play in the NFL, and have extremly long hair that you could be tackled by or have dredlocks that prevent you're helmet from fitting properly.

Well my dreads come a little past my shoulders so that is pretty damn long and it doesnt effect the way my helmet fits at all. It is also pretty much understood that if you have long hair it is gonna get pulled once in a while but my hair has never been a problem.

Also if you have long hair playing with it down is a choice because you can either tuck it or atleast put it up some.

So basically the only thing you have proven to me is something i already knew, and that is Amani Toomer is soft.

FWIW, I can't imagine anybody with long hair would try tucking it up inside their helmet like a turban; they would almost certainly braid it and let the ponytail hang down their back, inside the shoulder pads.

what the hell are you even arguing? that long hair might, occasionally and given nearly perfect circumstances, make one more prone to a concussion? that's utterly inane. it's not like a player is going to be given a helmet that's three sizes too big because he has some extra hair. and it's not like there isn't room on the inside of a perfectly fitting helmet to tuck said hair.

but hey, you're apparently the expert on when long hair might like, totally maybe be bad in a few cases. wouldn't want to suggest you apply logic or anything.

The big thing here is that the hair thing takes away from the individuality of some players (polamalu, bigby, mathis etc). Whoever said that it's a safety issue is a supreme douche. The players know that having long hair might give them a bigger chance of getting concussions, they're okay with that. They don't need a bunch of old white dude's (I'm guessing) saying what's safe and what isn't.

...I can't believe some people care about this so much.

They get paid millions of dollars, big deal if they have to tuck in their hair - or get a hair cut. I'd have my hair permanently removed by laser if it meant making that much money every year.

Well, that's not true. No one can take my hair away! No one!

What i can gather from the majority of this conversation is that this rule is utterly pointless..... and i don't fully buy the "long hair = more concussions" argument

Aren't there larger issues that the NFL/Competition Committee (and us, too?) should be worrying about?

Seriously.

I guess they dont want to ever see another "hair tackle" like it happened to Troy Polamalu, but thats a little too much IMO.

Its part of the culture and its the players choice. If he chooses to have long hair, he has to accept the possibility of having it pulled during the game.

long hair under helmet=helmet not fitting properly.

When a helmet doesnt fit properly, concussions are had alot easier.

See Amani Toomer.

If you come back with "Well Troy P. and Mathis have long hair and they don't get concussions"- compare the impact of a WR getting hit and how often to a DB

Again you're still speculating. Give me some cold hard evidence linking long hair and brain damage.

I'm calm, I just think it's silly that people care one way or the other. It's not going to change anything at all, unless you're a big fan of hair. In which case, America's Next Top Model is probably more up your alley.

Just because an issue is not relevant to you does not make it any less valid to discuss.

really? like I just speculated about Amani Toomer and his hair? When he shaved his head, he told my aunt it was because he was suffering several minor concussions... but that's ok, you don't have to believe me.

Again, no one says they have to cut it. Reading is tough isn't it?


Um where did I suggest that I thought the rule was actually passed? I used the word IF quite a bit there, so To quote someone else, "Reading is tough isn't it"

Huh..? Uh.. he.. was saying.. even if the rule IS passed.. they.. don't have to cut their hair. They just can't let it obscure the name on their jersey. Unless you were speaking hypothetically about a rule that forces them to cut their hair.. which.. has never been mentioned as a possibility.. Hrm?

jesus ****ing christ, for the sanity of everyone on the board, either quote ONCE where cutting one's hair was required or stop bloody repeating it. you people are making everyone on this board dumber.

Where the title say's "Haircut time" seems to indicate it as a possibility. I'm too lazy to read anymore, as you were.
