League Says No To Mathis' Facemask

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000228337/article/nfl-tells-colts-robert-mathis-to-wear-different-face-mask

Seems pretty ridiculous to me that the league is allowing some guys like Justin Tuck to wear customized facemasks yet Mathis has been told no. Its not as if the facemask he intended to wear gave him any sort of competitive advantage over his opponents.

The only advantage I can see Mathis getting out of wearing this facemask would be that it would be more difficult for the opposition to grab hold of and might help prevent injuries. Surely the league should want to reduce the amount of times players are grabbed by the facemask and the number of injuries that arise from this?

What are all your opinions on this?
