Ooh, that's gotta hurt. That guy did tackle polamalu by the hair though and then uneccisarily pulled him back up. This time he get's tackled by another longhaired male and since Larry head is shaved almost bald and hence has no hair to be tackled by, he got injured. Tackled by the ankle rather than the hair. Although Johnson is a big time jerk and he is disrespectful, I don't want to see him get injured. Fortunately it was only a sprained ankle.

But the most I hope comes out of it is that the next opportunity he gets to tackle a guy by the hair(if it's only neccesary). He will pick him back up, only by the hand, which he will then shake. Larry is a darn good runningback and a fine player in the NFL, but he needs to learn to be more accepting and more respect people who are different than him.

According to Maly Mal at sportsphds.com , he accuses the longhaired males of being a bad representation, harming the image of the NFL and are also unprofessional. I believe that it is the intolerance of diversity that is behind all of the misrepresentation and lack of professionalism in this case.
