That might affect Polamalu’s image, but help him on the field. Two seasons ago, the Pittsburgh safety with the long ponytail had his hair grabbed by Kansas City’s Larry Johnson and was thrown to the turf after an interception against the Chiefs.

The rule banning long hair on the field was proposed by Kansas City. It does not require players to get haircuts, but does “require them to tuck it up inside their helmets,” said Atlanta president Rich McKay, chairman of the league’s competition committee.

If this comes to be, with some players, the size of their helmets may begin to rival the size of the helmet team "golf" carts.:thisbig:

I find it humorous that the NFL allows hair tackles. No dog collaring, but feel free to grab some hair and sling a player to the ground. I'd get it chopped to keep it from happening, but that's just me.

Ditto. It was hilarious, I think it was a Jags game where they had to do an instant replay to see that his hair stayed inbounds. If I am a coach I'm all over that rule.

Man I don't even wear HATS anymore because of the dreadlocks. You know someone is going to come up with some kind of pounch in the back of the jersey to tuck the hair into right?

If you have long hair it's gunna get grabbed, thats just the way it is.

Unfortunately, like Florio said on PFT, the Union has the league by the short hairs on this one. God I hate unions.

But the hair was over the goal line..........a touchdown by a hair.....:whip:

HA!

If they really wanted to do something about offensive hair, they would do something about Bud Adams.

The best commentary on the hair issue:

Carl Peterson has a real problem with you damn hippies (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Carl-Peterson-has-a-real-problem-with-you-damn-h?urn=nfl,73654)

I stand before you, Mr. Goodell, in representation of all the NFL players that have seen fit to use my fine example over the years as their inspiring role model.
