Default Coaches Attire

It's June and there's not alot of football to talk about. Soo, I decided to get some different opinions over head coaches gameday attire. Del Rio and Nalan have decided to wear the suits for every home game. That's fine, whatever, but are they trying to make a point? Personally, I don't really care, but when you look at the thing Belichick wears it makes ya think.

So, what say you? Should there be a head coach dress code? If not, why would they even have an article about coaches attire unless somebodie's trying to make a point?

Quote:
Though the league determines what apparel can be worn on the sideline, Reebok provides that clothing for coaches -- from Bill Belichick's sleeveless sweatshirts to the black suit Nolan was allowed to wear in two games last season.

I'm with you 100%, but for discussion sake, should the NFL lay down some sort of code to prevent the Belichek clothesline?

I hate the idea of mandating a dress code, but that hoody has got to go...

I could honestly care less about what a coach wears. I'm there to watch the game, not look at coaches.

I think Belichick's attire is great. It shows what is truly important, and it sure ain't the clothes you wear!

Belichick wears the hoody as a protest. He wanted to wear a suit or something non-logod on the sidelines and was told he had to wear something with a logo. He said fine and went out and found the ugliest logo item he could and cut it up to make a statement.

I think he wears that thing due to a superstition more than anything else.

Do these suits by Rebok have logos on them? I don't remember seeing any.

It's all about investment! I wonder how much Rebok had to PAY to get TWO coaches to wear suits!

Personally, SUITS remind me of all those PEOPLE who sit in the club section and talk business rather than watch the game. Give me Bill B attire anyday, and the FU attitude that goes with it!!

Are they visible on the outside? That'd be kinda cool having a suit with the Texans logo on the chest pocket.

I wonder how many of the people trying to enforce these codes have even passed or caught a football.

If a coach prefers to wear a suit, as with Coach Landry, then cool, but if Belichek wants to wear a hoodie, still cool. What does either have to do with their ability to coach?

Yeah, it is very small on the pocket--at least it was last year for the one game they got to wear them, but I can't remember if it was an NFL logo or team logo.

It doesn't matter to me what a coach wears. If Belichek wants to tear up his hoody that's fine by me. I think I read somewhere that he gets fined for doing that but I'm not sure if that is true or not. The thing that got me is why it took 3 years of negotiations to finally allow Nolan and Del Rio to wear the suits. Three freakin years!

Can you even imagine a current NFL head coach wearing a cowboy hat?
