Surprisingly, the league has now forbidden NFL players from wearing unique-styled facemasks.

According to the NFL, any type that would be considered a “non-standard customized face mask” worn by players will not be allowed. The only time the league would consider granting permission to wear these types of helmets is if the player has a medical reason.

NFL athletes, such as Giants’ defensive end Justin Tuck and Ravens’ defensive end Chris Canty have already submitted their request for medical clearance due to past injuries.

The NFL is serious about this new rule and has already begun cracking down on players.

On Twitter, Indianapolis Colts’ defensive end Robert Mathis had tweeted that he is no longer able to wear his multiple-bar facemask grill.

There go the super-cool facemasks that everyone loved.

  1. The NFL wants to ban `unconventional` faces masks but Roger Goodell doesn`t have the balls to address the issue of player misconduct and their (players) recklessness in terms of their behavior . What a damn joke ! Is this really the best that the NFL can actually do ? LOL ,LOL ,LOL !!!

    Goodell needs to be wearing a mask , much like the one worn by Anthony Hopkins` character Dr Hannibal Lecter . That way , no one has to listen to his moronic stupidity and the statements uttered by him .

      You’re right Alan, we agree as well. We’re not sure why the NFL decided to turn down these awesome face masks. The game of football is entertainment and these face masks just add to it.

  2. This could get interesting if guys like Tuck and Canty win their cases.
