OC Register Columnist is Crazy!

My email to her.

Ms. Smith.

You have made a race issue out of something by not observing all the facts.  There are many other players besides Plummer or Roethlisberger that are wearing beards or sporting long hair.  How about Troy Polamalu and his long curly locks?  Maybe you forgot about Donovan McNabb since he was injured but I seem to remember that he was wearing a beard earlier in the season.  Then we also have Randy Moss and his afro.  And last but not least Ray Buchanan and his braids.  Comparing showboating to a players hair is pretty out there.  Showboating like that of players that do choreographed dances are usually looked upon as taunts towards the other team.  It's unprofessional and has no place on the field, court, or rink.

As for the basketball issue, many players were unaffected by the change.  I'm not sure about you, but at my job I'm required to dress in a fashion that is approved by my employer.  Basketball players are required to dress business casual to and from games, the team provides the travel for the players, these players are on the clock during this time.  The NBA is not telling these players how to dress outside of their work, thus it seems pretty fair to me.  But then you once again mention players with longer hair that are white.  Lets forget those NBA stars that has wore afro's, braids, or even dreads.

Race is not the issue professionalism is, on the sports field just like it is in the office!
