NFL Tables Hair Length Rule, Passes Defensive Radio in Helmet

New, comments

ESPN's John Clayton reports that the NFL has tabled the rule brought forth by the Chiefs, making it illegal for a player's hair to cover their name.  I'm guessing this will get tabled again in May.

One piece of good news is that a defensive player will now be able to wear a radio in his helmet starting next season.  This will hopefully reduce the possibility of another "SpyGate" occurring.  The measure passed 25-7, and am anxiously going to await explanations from the following seven teams:

  • Green Bay
  • Oakland
  • Philadelphia
  • St. Louis
  • Seattle
  • Tampa Bay
  • Washington
I'll write the Raiders off as Al Davis being Al Davis.  But look at the other 6 teams.  They are all in the NFC.  I'm guessing teams in the AFC have a more vested interest in getting this passed, since they are more likely to play a team that has been caught "spying."
