GANG LINK MAY CAUSE NFL TO "PULL RUG" ON BANDANAS
Published March 2, 1995
The NFL may ban the wearing of bandanas under the helmets of its players linking the headwear to urban gangs. NFL Dir of Football Development Gene Washington says "several high school coaches, including black coaches in urban areas," have questioned if the bandana is part of the NFL uniform. Washington: "The whole idea is to maintain a uniform code. I'm not leading the charge. High school coaches have told us it's not good for the (NFL) image, particularly with young people living in urban areas who think of it as a symbol." The league may vote on the issue during its May meetings (Gordon Forbes, USA TODAY, 3/2).
