"Bucco Bruce" May Never Be Seen Again

Interesting article about throwback uni's. We may never see the Patriot hiking the ball, or the white and blue Dallas Star, or the Chiefs wearing The State of Texas helmet (Thank God) again.

But perhaps the greatest loss would be of Buccaneer Bruce, the poncy, pillowbiting fabulously flaming swashbuckler on the old Tampa Bay helmet.

Also, what's the big deal? Can't they just fit players for all the possible uniforms that will be worn during the season at the beginning of the year?

Looks like Bucco Bruce goes back in the closet for awhile.

This doesn't even sound right. I think someone's getting the rule confused, or they're posturing to get the league to pay for two (2!) helmet fittings per year. I don't even know who pays for all that stuff now. I assume it's the teams.

I guess if you take this to it's logical conclusion, we've also seen the end of in-season trades and FA signings, because the guy's ONE helmet is the wrong one now.

And having said all that, I'd be fine with throwbacks being...thrown back. Every few years is enough for me anyway.


And...they don't paint helmets anymore?

I remember the year they started throwbacks like that. It was an anniversary year, and that Lions uniform was the first one I saw. I was too young to understand why they were doing it, and I just assumed the NFL was having money issues and couldn't afford the fancy uniforms with the decals on the helmets anymore.

The idea that the NFL, a Team, or even a Player cannot make 2 helmets "safe" per year is obviously a flawed theory/idea/statement.

And I bet the NFL's Head, Neck and Spine guy said that two helmets were fine as long as they were both fitted to that player, and identical in safety features, at least privately, but stated exactly what the NFL told him to say publicly.

I personally believe that NFL should not be able to mandate that players cannot change helmets. The NFL and the NFLPA should agree on what safety standards must be met in regards to helmets, and the players and teams should then be able to choose what helmets they wear for games.

What if a player makes a position change, like say Tamba Hali. I know he changed during the off-season, but what if he had changed during the season. A player on the defensive line may favor the older style helmets because they weigh more, but when switching to linebacker they prefer the new helmets because they weigh less, or make it easier to turn the head left and right. Why in the hell should the NFL be able to say no to the helmet change, as long as the helmet is fitted to the player and meets safety guidelines?

On a side-note, I cannot stand Roger Goodell.

They are just doing some CYA. The NFL does not want to be responsible for more player health issues. Actual player safety means nothing to the NFL, just profits. It is the NFLPA and it's members that are truly concerned with player safety. Here is the Forbes list for teams worth and profit. And the NFL profits from every team, even Detroit, which has lost money each of the last four years. Forbes NFL Teams Value and Profit
