Banning Bandanas

Deion may soon have to change his head dress.
Football Player With Bandana

What's wrong with the NFL these days? First the league told the players they weren't allowed to do touchdown dances any more. Now, the NFL plans to ban players from wearing bandanas. What a bunch of party poopers.

The league banned touchdown dances because they didn't think it was sportsmanlike for players to hold big celebrations after putting the ball in the end zone. Gimme a break. Players are trying to tackle each other to the ground as hard as they can on every play, and the NFL is worried that a little dance in the end zone might not be sportsmanlike.

Why is the NFL banning bandanas? Well, the league thinks players that wear bandanas are putting forward a bad image to football fans - especially kids. Those bright guys at the NFL think that just because some people who are in gangs wear bandanas that everyone who wears a bandana must be in a gang. That's one of the lamest things I've ever heard. I mean even that goodie-goodie, Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC wears a stupid bandana, so they can't be that bad. Players wear bandanas to protect their scalps from the helmet or to keep sweat out of their eyes. What are players supposed to do now? Just let buckets of sweat pour down their face and into their eyes until it stings? A football player that can't see because he's drowning in his own sweat or scratching his head all the time gives off a much worse image to kids than a guy wearing a bandana. Some gang members also wear running shoes and underpants - so why not ban players from wearing those too.

Gangs have a bad image because they do bad things not because they wear bandanas. The NFL gives itself a bad image when it tells players who score touchdowns not to party in the end zone or wear bandanas. Maybe the guys that run the league have been blinded by all the sweat dripping into their eyes.

What do you think about players wearing bandanas? A good way to keep sweat off the face or a sign that they're a killa'? to Kidzworld.

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
