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 huge it barely fits in his helmet and a number of it tumbles out back. Polamalu’s trademark hair won him a sponsorship deal with Head Shoulders, under Proctor umbrella corporation Gamble. Multi civil intended to protect their interests by taking out insurance on the Pittsburgh Steelers defender’s hair to tune of $ 1m. On p of that, proctor and Gamble ok out the policy with Lloyds of London, the insurer will not reveal what the policy covers but experts assume it involves damage, real and discolouring hair loss. It is 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. Now please pay attention. I’m sure that the defender is tackled a couple of times by his long hair, that he claims has been most painful thing that wasn’t a case with him in a game. Did you know that the 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 turned out to be somewhat of a trend.
League has no rules on tackling by means of pulling hair as their rules predate the hairy trend when almost any player had shorter to medium hair. Some claim that with hair that long, spectators are usually unable to see his name and number on his shirt but as he is one player with three foot hair, it’s ugh to mistake him. 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. Finally, in 2008 NFL’s governing body proposed newest rules that hair must be kept under the helmets and away from player’s positions but this was rejected. One way or another, polamalau has not seen hairdressing equipment or a salon chair for over a decade, that last time he had it cut was earlier 2000.
