    NEW YORK—Hoping to address the issue of long hair obscuring players' names and numbers, NFL owners passed a new rule wherein players would be restricted to one of three league-approved hairstyles. "People don't come to games to watch tufts of hair make tackles and score touchdowns; they come to watch the colorful uniforms do it," said 49ers coach Mike Nolan of the new rule, which will limit players to No. 2 grade buzz cuts, No. 1 grade "high-and-tight" cuts, and Johnny Unitas-style flattops. "These three haircuts embody the class, dignity, and discipline that has always been associated with NFL football players. Frankly, I thought three was too many; buzz cuts hint at a sense of individuality that has absolutely no place in football." NFL owners will next vote on a rule proposal that would strike names from players' uniforms, contracts, and birth certificates.

    The obvious solution would be to allow the opposing players to grab them by any hair not inside the helmet, i.e. to block. I think the problem would "take care of itself".
    ;D


    But you are right, the NFL is becoming a puritan dictatorship. They call it the NFL = "No Fun League". Soon it will be like college football, where you just hand the ball to the ref. after you score a TD. No emotion allowed !
