First the crackdown on TD celebrations

now this

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/robert-mathis-justin-tuck-nfl-will-not-allow-players-to-wear-customized-face-masks-080913

No more customized facemasks which ACTUALLY WERE DEVELOPED FOR PLAYER SAFETY

Many crossbars / lots of small openings = no room for OL fingers to get thru to poke eyes or grab on to facemask which can lead to serious neck injury from sudden jerking downwards

Jesus phucking christ when the phuck is this Nazi going to stop/end his tenure?

Literally singlehandedly ruining the NFL. No Fun League, and also pussifying a violent by nature sport (that EVERYONE KNOWS ITS RISKS BEFORE PUTTING ON THE PADS) which in turn will pussify the American public.












































HOLY **** MY JIMMIES ARE SO RUSTLED RIGHT NOW

Seriously. Aren't they supposed to be advocating/supporting player safety?

Chris Canty started it (+ visor) to protect his eyes from OL fingers and anything else because he had a detached retina.

It prevents injury from facemasks, which are inevitable in the trenches (fair or not [e.g. OL gets beat, has to pull facemask])

I would like to see an opinion of someone who didn't like TD celebrations srs.

Lol who didn't look forward to guys scoring just to see the celebration?

All organizations that run every sport are taking the fun out of sports. Wtf was wrong with these face masks? Was it a safety issue? Idk... It seems like the way things are going that sports aren't going to be sports in another decade or so

An exception applies to players who can demonstrate a medical reason for the additional protection.

The problem is just like any other business they have to toe the line between uniformity and individuality.

He gets the $20m/year, he gets to be the scapegoat.

Cool facemasks are showboating obviously. Makes the players with normal facemasks feel bad.

I think only the OL/DL/LB should be allowed to wear customs. They don't need to get rid of it, just clearly state who is and isn't allowed to use it. It's quite obvious what the intent of the helmets are for, to protect those in the trenches against facemasks, eye-gouging.

Soon you'll be hearing his banning visors and armsleeves when its not cold weather.

If it doesn't break the ****ing game Goodell, then don't get rid of it. Celebrations add to the entertainment factor, whether it's a home team score and the crowd goes insane with joy, or an away team score and the fans erupt in boos, it's been a part of the NFL since he's been born.

Does nobody else see how these giant slab masks could be harmful to opposing players?

Show me studies proving that players are getting their necks snapped left and right from facemasking and I'll buy the whining... you're using the same logic they're trying to use to ban half the guns in the US. Just because you care doesn't mean it matters.

the nfl is gonna be playing robot emotionless football in front of half empty stadiums soon

take all the emotion, hitting, and fun out of the game, and then mark up tickets by 300%, good luck growing your brand

Tuck and Canty are allowed to keep theirs b/c of medical reasons

Not as per the article.

Canty has a legit medical reason and Tuck among others wears his to be proactive instead of reactive to neck injuries.


The ban includes players like Colts linebacker Robert Mathis, Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett, Giants defensive lineman Justin Tuck, and Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty, who wore his extra-thick cluster of bars on Thursday night in Tampa.

Does nobody else see how these giant slab masks could be harmful to opposing players?

Show me studies proving that players are getting their necks snapped left and right from facemasking and I'll buy the whining... you're using the same logic they're trying to use to ban half the guns in the US. Just because you care doesn't mean it matters.

That's not the point. The point is they're being proactive by being safe BEFORE their neck breaks or their eyes get gouged out. You ever been facemasked? It phucking SUCKS.
Where the head goes, the body goes. Someone grabbing your facemask and twisting it / jerking it around not only strains your neck unevenly/unnecessarily (on top of having a heavy helmet already...) but it throws your entire body off balance / wack.

Imagine someone sticking their hands in your facemask, then jerking it straight down. Your neck would phucking be wrecked and you would faceplant into the turf.
At game speed, that someone is likely to overshoot the facemask and end up shoving their hand/fingers into your face before latching on.
