    Green decals on NFL players helmets this week.

    POSTED 11:24 a.m. EDT; UPDATED 11:36 a.m. EDT, October 2, 2005

    PLAYERS PISSED ABOUT "FUTBOL" DECAL


    As the NFL prepares to tightly embrace (i.e., make a lot of pesos off of) the burgeoning Spanish-speaking population, players throughout the league are pissed that they are being required to don ugly-ass decals that read "Futbol Americano" on their helmets this weekend.

    The concern isn't that the league is going a bit too far (it is) with its efforts to sell a few urban sombreros emblazoned with the NFL shield, but that the NFL is requiring these decals to be worn not long after it utilized half-hearted, in comparison, efforts to memorialize guys like Johnny Unitas and Pat Tillman.

    A year ago, the powers-that-be threatened to fine Jake Plummer 30 large if he dared to wear a decal in honor of Tillman, an American solider who died in a hail of friendly fire after giving up his NFL career to do his part to preserve freedom. In 2002, the NFL refused to let Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to wear black high tops after Unitas died of a heart attack.

    So let's hope that, the next time a high-profile NFL player passes, the league will keep its cabeza out of its culata and permit the guy to be properly honored. If helmets can be used to curry favor with our muchachos in Mexico, they can and should be used to pay tribute to the guys who have made the game what it is.

    I think they should have a Norwgian Slogan instead.
