    Should The Reds Go Back To The Clean Shaven Look?

    They enforce it in their farm system. They dropped the policy when the Reds acquired Junior. And their fortunes haven't been the same since.

    So, is it time for the Reds to go back to the clean shaven look? Go back to a more professional style? The Yankees enforce still and no one seems to complain.

    And while I'm at it.....get rid of the black in the uniforms. Seems to me these two things haven't worked in a positive way either.

    I'm willing to try anything to lift this five year curse.

    I'm with you, Krusty.

    I also want to see the stirrups return.

    You mean Greg Vaughn.

    I say no, it's not the 60's and the Hippies already lost anyway.

    I'd worry more about how to get the team in the right direction than their hair styles or facial hair preferences

    But alot of professional jobs place emphasis on grooming and appearance. A form of discipline and control within the company.

    Image means alot. Dress like a slob and that could have a bearing on promotions down the road. At the same time it says alot about your workers.

    Frankly, what Bob Howsam institute set a form of discipline and commardie within the organization. Similar to the military. You march to the tune of the organization and you can overcome anything.

    But most Sports teams don't.

    You can't overcome bad pitching with a haircut, I'd focus on real problems before I played the robotic card.

    I'm not saying it is the answer. I just think all ballplayers should have grooming standards.

    The Johnny Damon look really says alot about being a professional ballplayer.

    Unfortunately, some folks (Naehering) feel the need to exert some form of control. If they can't control a player's performance, they will darn sure control his haircut.

    They should be able to do what they want, unless its some thing drastic like a foot long beard or hair halfway down there back.

    They should have Acevedo stop dying his hair because he does look goofy.

    I think the Lizard King look of Damon's should be required for a team like the Red Sox.....they can play "The End" after each loss... mainly in the playoffs.

    I like the clean shaven look but I don't see why they should enforce it. The ballplayers should be free to wear their hair however their wives like it.

    That noted, I agree about Freel. The less hair he has on his head the better he looks.
