Look. If they let him wear polo shirts in the locker room then he might be tempted to go out and PLAY polo!

That could easily lead to a serious injury. Broken bones, concussions, saddle sores, any number of things could happen!

This is just the NFL exercising their laser-like focus on player safety.

Streisand Effect Alert: How many people would have even noted or cared that he was wearing a Lacoste polo, instead of whatever brand currently paid enough to be the Official Polo of the National Football League (I'll go ahead and guess Nike)? Like 2 guys at the Nike Brand Management Division?

Corporate hacks are corporate hacks. Big surprise.

The inspector should just wlk around with a huge roll of tape, and cover up logos without saying anything. Like wrap that shiat around a shirt twelve times, just to be sure. Maybe yell "Denied!", or make the censorship Bleep! sound. Then just strut away like a bad-ass.

Hehe, or hell, just have someone in their video dept. apply a blur effect anytime a non-NFL approved logo is visible.

I liked that True Religion sweatshirt Antonio Brown was wearing - which is kind of relevant because without seeing it I probably would not have known it existed to purchase it

Like what they did with Chris Benoit?

Years and years ago when I was in high school 20/20 did a segment about product placement in sports. They mainly focused on NASCAR and showed clips of people wearing hats with corporate logos on them standing behind a driver they were interviewing. The funniest one was this guy that changed his hat about every ten seconds. But yeah corporate BS.

Oh waaaaaah.  Just wear what you're supposed to wear or change when the 'logo police' ask you to.  If this rule wasn't in place NFL pre/post games would start to resemble NASCAR.

I like the heavy handed approach.  It removes all ambiguity and prevents the slippery slope.

LucklessWonder: DeAngelo Sucks

/Worst starting CB in the NFL



Which is why he has two defensive TDs already this season and nobody else has more than one.

Also, active players with 40+ interceptions:

Ed Reed (61 @ 34 years old)
Charles Woodson (55 @ 36 years old)
Champ Bailey (52 @ 34 years old)
Asante Samuel (50 @ 31 years old)
DeAngelo Hall (40 @ 29 years old)

/Scrubs, the whole bunch of 'em

I don't understand why people still get upset about this. The NFL is, and has been for a long time, first and foremost a business.
These guys are still at work when the game is over. If you have a dress code at work, it doesn't go away at lunch if you stay on the premises.
Pay me what the least paid guys in the NFL make in a year, and I will dress any way you want

The first one was a fluke that involved no skill from D Hall. He seems to show up and make enough good plays that it seems like he is OK at his job but anyone who has seen him play week in and week out knows that he gets burned more than any other Skins defensive player.

The reason is because the players are the ones who go in and make the game and thus the entire NFL enjoyable and, most importantly, popular and profitable.

But here's the thing, you can only nit-pick your employees to death. Have you gone to a clothing store recently? You have to look REALLY hard to find clothes that are NOT branded with the manufacturer logo. Do you want Nike to start issuing these guys wardrobes? He was not at the podium. He was getting ready to go home. Some press were asking questions and Mr. Important decided to throw his weight around. That's bullshiat.

The other reason people are upset is because there we 52 other players in that locker room and I'm willing to bet that NONE of them have ever had this rule enforced upon them.

I find it highly suspicious that this happened after those douchebags over at Forbes pointed out the black on black Under Armor logos on Cam Newtons mask when there were numerous other players who also wore UA clips, not to mention those that wore Oakley, or Adidas, or Reebok.

The NFL took a non-issue and made it an issue. You're going to have players start showing up in plain white t-shirts and not doing interviews or post game talks out of spite if this shiat continues.

I hope MeAngelo steps on a lego.

Or overseasons a meal and ruins a dinner party.

Or gets bought WNBA Finals tickets. Half court.

/As a Falcons fan, this article could be about him curing cancer and helping grandmothers across the street and I'd say the same thing.

Hall is the reason the skins give up 35 points every first half. When you google the term "busted coverage," it says, "did you mean deangelo hall?"
