The KC Chiefs Do Not Like Hippies
In what could be a boon for barbershops, the NFL’s competition committee is considering a rule that would ban players from having their hair cover or obscure the names on the back of player’s jersey.
The Kansas City Chiefs proposed the rule that is expected to be debated, and voted on, at the league’s annual meeting later this month in Palm Beach, Fla.
It already generated discussion during a week’s worth of competition committee meetings in Naples, Fla., earlier this month.
Should it pass, it instantly would generate public debate and force players such as Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu and Jacksonville cornerback Rashean Mathis to get a haircut.
The Chiefs view longer hair as a uniform violation. But others could interpret it as a safety violation. When Kansas City played Pittsburgh in October 2006, Chiefs running back Larry Johnson pulled down Polamalu from behind grabbing ahold of his hair.
There apparently has been no empirical data that supports that longer hair is a safety issue, but it is an issue with at least one team. And it will generate discussion and debate.
It is hardly something that has the NFL pulling out its hair. But it is something that soon could have players trimming theirs.

Hippies and hillbilly's never get along. See Easy Rider (Worst movie ever).

Carl just needs to concentrate on making his team better because that's even too much for him.
They've repeatedly proposed expanding the number of wild card teams because they've had a hard time winning the division since Marty left.
And now this stupid proposal.
Just fix your own damn team first.
