GANG LINK MAY CAUSE NFL TO "PULL RUG" ON BANDANAS

     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).
