    League rejects 'Hester rule'

    The NFL has no interest in doing Devin Hester any favors, so there will be no "Devin Hester rule" passed any time soon.

    Am I the only one that is hearing the "Hester Rule" for the first time?

    They also tabled the proposal to ban hair extending from the helmet.
    Good!
    I kinda like watching the "hair tackles!"

    I had not heard of it described exactly as the "Hester Rule", but they were talking about outlawing direction punting a couple of months back.
    Hell - there were Kluwe quotes on it.

    Lemme look....

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I remember the discussion, but "The Hester Rule" is new to me.

    I believe directional punting is an art/strategy that should remain in the game.

    Actually this is the first time I have heard of it... maybe I did before but thought it was such a stupid idea that I just brain dumped it right away.
    Thank God it was rejected.
