    NFL: No Suits Allowed

    NFL: **ers coach not allowed to wear suit
    Sunday, May 08, 2005

    **ers coach Mike Nolan recently petitioned the NFL to allow him to wear a suit on the sidelines during game days, according to the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE.

    "To me, it's professional. I think it's respectful," Nolan said. "There was certainly no deal, no one came to me, there was nothing to gain. I wasn't trying to put the spotlight on me. But what I was trying to say, there's somebody in charge and this is what they look like."

    The league turned Nolan down. Head coaches must wear the NFL-sanctioned team garb.

    "There were marketing issues and sales issues, all that stuff," Nolan lamented. Beyond wanting to look the part of a man in charge, Nolan also viewed it as a tribute to his father, Dick, who was the coach of the **ers from 1968-75.

    "I must say looking at the pictures of my dad -- they are all around my office -- I thought, 'I'm going to do that.' But they are not going to let me."

    How stupid is this? Bill Belichick can look like the Unabomber on the sidelines but Mike Nolan can't wear a suit? Is this the NFL or the NCAA? Pursuit of the almighty dollar rules all, as usual.

    Actually, I heard that Nolan wanted to wear a swimsuit, and that is why the league turned him down.

    That could be a problem. If Nolan were allowed to wear a swimsuit, Georgia might feel entitled to do the same which would be much more disturbing than the sideline hand-holding with coaches and players we alrerady have to endure.
