It might be in the highlights for the game. I don't have time to look at it right now, but I'm pretty sure it will be in there.

LJ got flagged for taunting. I didn't see him playing with his hair after the whistle.

Troy ran off the field like a pro becuase he knows that's the chance you take when you have long hair. ricky williams use to get tackeled by the hair too. but I think that hair was deemed to part of the uniform if it's hanging out your helmet.

Are you kidding? He was practically braiding his hair after the whistle! :-b

He wasn't. Its completely legal to tackle by the hair. He was flagged because after dragging troy down out of bounds, he stood up with his hair still in his hand and gave and extra tug on his hair and then flipped it. He was flagged for taunting.

Besides, even if he wasn't flagged, there was 2 other fouls on that play for Pittsburgh to choose from, including another personal foul. :-D (Yes, KC got 3 fouls on one play)


Ok, that makes sense. I thought it was for pulling him down by his hair. He should still be forced to tuck his hair under his uniform for his own health reasons and because it looks rediculous

Polamalu grows his hair long for cultural reasons - the only reason he cut it at USC was because they made him. And as stated the penalty wasn't for dragging him down by the hair, but rather for picking him up by it afterwards.
