Re: Should The Reds Go Back To The Clean Shaven Look?
Count me in as a "no."
There are rules that accomplish something meaningful, and there are rules for the sake of having a rule. There's a popular epithet starting with "chicken" for the latter. I'm OK with the idea of keeping facial hair neat, but eliminating it? Needless. (I'll pass on the larger, sillier implication that growing facial hair is some sort of character flaw.)
And if we'd turn away good ballplayers and productive citizens for the sake of facial hair, I'd suggest there are some serious misplaced priorities at work, as well as misconceptions about cause and effect.
