The NFL will not allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear a helmet decal for the slain police officers who died in their city. Good call?
The No Fun League (I know this doesn't fall under "fun", but it's the same type of absurd rules). This is why if players/teams think something matters enough, a lot of them don't ask and risk getting fined.
Who is surprised?
No one considering the rule book
They should understand that their rule about nothing being on the helmets, will make a HUGE impact if they show support for the fallen heroes by making this exception.
Yeah, it's their policy. They don't allow them for any causes. It's either all or none, and they want none.
No, but let's not forget that they wouldn't allow ANY decal on a helmet no matter what it is. It's just their rules. This isn't them being a bunch of "anti cop liberals" it's what they would do with anything else.
I think it is good. Otherwise it opens a cornucopia of causes that some team would want to acknowledge. The NFL would then have to be in the position to decline some thereby creating possible lawsuits. Can they wear armbands?
The NFL is now an extension of the Democrat party. All of those meathead Jocks figured it will keep the media from scrutinizing the Domestic abuse, rapes, drug offenses and other thuggery that goes hand in hand with the Players they sometimes represent. Have you noticed how the media has decreased its coverage of these types of crimes over the last few years?
If anything media attention on crimes of that sort by NFL players has gone way up in the post-Ray Rice era.
