No, the nfl ruled a few years back that excessive hair can be used to tackle a player (why Ricky shaved his head, and why Edge trimmed the locks)

Strange that they allow that, but don't allow horse collar tackles

Carr is obviously better looking than Kianeu Reeves ever was, and that will help him be a national level sports celeb when and if we get into the playoffs
and start making some noise. I'm not that sympothetic though, he is a very
wealthy young man already and set for life financially if he does get real stupid along the way.

I've conducted a 'scientific' poll of men around me, including friends, family, business associates, truck drivers, and whoever is standing in line with me that wants to talk Texans...and I have yet to find even ONE dude that has a hair cut specifically because their wife likes it.

Seriously, not even one man really cares, because we all know if we let the women-folk choose our hairstyle, we'd be using blow dryers, curlers, perms, hair coloring, brushes (as opposed to combs), hair weaves, straighteners, relaxers, and a whole bunch of other hairstyle related stuff that we still don't know the long term health ramifications of using on our heads!

So how many of us dudes ask our wives' permission before cutting our hair? Really, I'm curious to know. I know I don't...I mean, I might ask how it looks after the haircut (just to be nice), but NEVER before the haircut.

A previous poster's mention of "prissy" seriously comes to mind about this whole Carr's hair business. And I wholeheartedly agree about the Green Bay game last year. I remember talking with my buds during the game about his constant attention to his hair every time he took his helmet off. Heck, I remember him taking his helmet off just to brush his hair aside before putting it right back on!

I remember watching old Baltimore Colt footage and thinking to myself how much Johnny Unitas messes with his hair . My point is this is not new for the QB position it happens .

Johnny Unitas always had a crew cut when he played.

Look, all I'm saying is it gets quite annoying to watch the guy tug at the locks all the time. If it's that bothersome, cut the crap off.....simple as that! It isn't that I don't "understand" professional athletes...well, I don't understand having that kind of money, but I do think that he should not worry so much about it during the game. It does make him look like a :cat:

All I know is if they don't get Carr some protection, he will be hair today and gone tomorrow.

Don't you think a bunch of guys sitting around talking about another guys hair is well...odd? I've got to admit that I've never talked about haircuts with another man. Not even a barber except to say "The Usual". Getting a little weird here.

I think taking every snap through 76 sacks as a rookie overshadows what he ever does with his hair.

Seriously, this team has many problems but I really don't think Carr's hair is one of them.

As I recall, the whole Carr hair thing really took off after he was selected one of the sexiest men alive 2004 in People's Magazine.
I had thought we/ and David were past all that by now. Guess not.



^^ He at least won a Super Bowl. ...oh, back to that cool Super Bowl Shuffle.
(Maybe I need to ask Lauren for a copy of that yet)

Odd, yes...except when it's on the FRONT PAGE OF OUR SPORTS SECTION!!!!

I mean, it wouldn't even be an issue if David Carr had not made it an issue. He's the one making the bold statement of not cutting it off unless they win.

I thought the whole issue was a bit fruity to begin with!

ps. The People mag thing was kinda' goofy to, but I understand that athletes are celebrities, so I never really gave it much thought.

As long as a man has hair he is happy. He does not make a big deal about long or short becuase he knows one day is only choice might be: shave or not shave.
