Just So You Know, NFL: Troy Polamalu Is Not Cutting His Hair for Anybody
So we know Herm Edwards hates hippies and all they stand for. But the unintended consequences of the the proposed "hair rule" is some players might totally disregard it. Like, say, Troy Polamalu. At least that's what former teammate Clark Haggans, recently on Fox Sports Radio, thinks:"Now they're diving into you got to wear your hair a certain way. I know Troy Polamalu is not going to cut his hair for anybody. He's going to grow his hair until the end of time. So with him, I don't know if he was suppose to rock a bun or something like that or go with a little scrunchy that girls wear. I know with him that's not going to happen because when he lets his hair out, its time to play. I would say it's personal preference. I mean you got players from the 70's that play in the NBA that have all kinds of afros, corn rows, and all that other stuff. Hockey has mullets. So why change your hair in football."Haggans makes a good point: Polamalu only "rocks a bun" during pregame warm-ups and formal occasions. Game time = go time*. And if hockey players can sport mullets, which presumably hide the name on the jersey, why is it an issue for the NFL?
