One woman ld me the choice was betwixt pleasurable sex for a year, or a vacation in Florida for a week. NFL Player Troy Polamalu is notorious for his supersized hair, his shaggy mane reaches a metre out in all directions and that’s when it’s curly! It’s so massive it barely fits in his helmet and dozens of it tumbles out the back. Polamalu’s trademark hair won him a sponsorship deal with Head Shoulders, under Proctor umbrella corporation Gamble. I know that the multinational intended to protect their interests by taking out insurance on Pittsburgh Steelers defender’s hair to tune of $ 1m. While discolouring and damage hair loss, proctor and Gamble ok out policy with Lloyds of London, the insurer would not reveal what the policy covers but experts assume it involves real. In 2006 he was grabbed by Larry Kansas Johnson City Chief’s and pulled down by his hair as he was running for an uchdown after intercepting a pass. Defender was tackled a couple of times by his long hair, that he claims is the most painful thing that wasn`t a case with him in a game. However, NFL governing body currently has no rules on having long hair and an estimated 10 of players now have hair protruding from their back helmets, something that has happen to be somewhat of a trend.
Now look, the league in addition has no rules on tackling by means of pulling hair as their rules predate hairy trend when each player had quite short to medium hair. Some claim that with hair that long, spectators are unable to see his name and number on his shirt but as he is only one player with three foot hair, it’s complex to mistake him. In 2008 NFL’s governing body proposed modern rules that hair must be kept under helmets and away from player’s positions but this was rejected. Some players have had second thoughts about their hair length, in 2003 Edgerrin Indianapolis James Colts was brought to the ground by someone grabbing his hair, the next day he turned up for training with his head shaved. Polamalau has not seen hairdressing equipment or a salon chair for over a decade, that last time he had it cut was late 2000.
