If the NFL was truly concerned with "distractions" away from the GAME itself, they would not have beautiful women in hot pants on the sidelines.
No, this facemask issue is the typical image-first agenda by the NFL. But hey, it is their league, they can do what they want. However, they are not above criticism for those decisions.
this is what I think as well. All the uniforms and helmuts are the same, so except for the facemasks and some of their shoes, they all look the same. I just don't see any problem with players having custom facemasks (as long as they are SAFETY approved).
The NFL should focus on other things that might ruin their image. Like local TV stations that can't ****ing broacast a simple ****ing preseason game.
