One person isn't grassroots but I'd say that was more individual based and more free-market than this current issue.
It's still pussifying the league more though. Really, I mean to the players have to wear pink gloves too?
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
