Healthy Polamalu Presenting Big Problems

Full story: The Associated Press

Troy Polamalu made so many plays, was so irritating and unsettling, that the frustrated Kansas City Chiefs finally did what has seemed inevitable since the All-Pro safety began wearing his hair down his back.

He wears it according to his Somoan warrior tradition and heritage.

No larry isn't getting fined the tackle was fine you can tackle by the hair. The penelty was on him talking trash after the play. In the NFL if you choose to have long hair hanging out of your helmet it is free game. As for Jared Allan things have gotten quit about his DUI. He will be suspended but Im sure the chiefs won't do anything until the NFL imposses theres. He is to valuable to do anyuthing to until we absalutly have to.

Actually, I have to disagree with one thing. You're right, the penalty was not for Larry tackling Polamalu by the hair, but it WAS for Larry CONTINUING to yank his hair and actually pulling him up to a standing position by his hair. This happened after Polamalu was already down, whistles had been blown ending the play, and they were both out of bounds.

Troy has always been known for making big plays and his long locks. It was just a matter of time before he intercepted a play and got tackled by his hair. The problem wasnt with the tackling by the hair. It was what happened after they were out of bounds and the play was clearly over! Totally unsportsmanlike!

wonder what king carl will do with jared i know the police treated him nicely by driving him home instead of spending the night in jail and having his car towed. wondering what it cost how many autographs and tickets did he have to give the police to treat him so good

That skinhead Larry Johnson really got it when he played against the Packers. He got tackled by a longhair, A.J. Hawk and this time Larry didn't have hair to yank so he got his ankle twisted. Fortunately, it was only an ankle. At least he can learn from this and respect long haired males and acknowledge that they are human beings like him from this point forward.
