http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ees-told-teams-not-to-wear-throwback-helmets/ The NFL Competition Committee told NFL teams not to wear Throwback helmets. The short version was they feel players shouldn't switch to a different helmet they aren't used to wearing and playing in, just for appearences. The league didn't say you can't wear throwbacks, but if Dallas wants to wear its Thanksgiving Throwbacks, it would have to do so with the Silver Helmet. Surely the NFL and teams could afford to just remove the decal, and paint the helmets the players are comfortable with? It's not like a throwback helmet is the same technology worn in 1960. Its just a different color shell essentially. Thoughts?
