  • Always wondered about that. It seems to me that the dreads would be a PITA for athletes. To each their own, I guess.

    Clean cut is a good look for him, though.

    That is insulting.

    Perhaps to you it is.

    Think humor... now re-read my comment.

    Trust me... my comment was not derogatory to dreadlocks or those who choose to wear them.

    It's your mind that has turned my neutral comment into one that you find insulting.

  • Great googley mooglie! 37 posts as a result of some player getting a haircut?

    Wow, are we ever a desperate group here, starved for information, prepared to discuss the comparative upside or downside of a player getting a haircut.

    This thread takes the term discussion board to a new level.

    OTAs can't come soon enough for me.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    What a special magical year!

  • I'm not a fan of any NFL players wearing dreads, and it has nothing to do with looks.

    Hair has weight. Foot-long dreads probably weigh around two pounds. Literally, you are faster without long dreads. If you don't believe hair weighs that much, look at the prices of buying real hair extensions. They sell by weight and length.

    Imagine what Larry Fitzgerald would be like if he got serious and cut his dreads. Hair has nothing to do with how serious you are about football or life. Its just hair. Ask Rolando Mcclain how his clean cut hairstyle has treated him.....

  • Hopefully Richard Sherman and (esp.) Sidney Rice will follow Irvin's lead on this, though I don't expect it. Not that it bothers me, per se, or is a big deal, but long hair (be it dreads, braids, or whatever) coming out of the back of a football players helmet has always looked awkward to me, esp. on offense skill position players and DB's. It's even odder in baseball (ex: Andrew McCutcheon).
