Rubber Wrist Bands

Submitted by Dr.Jay on August 10th, 2010 at 10:56 AM

 I was watching todays Countdown to Kickoff and I noticed a lot of the players(Including Greg Banks) had on Maize and Blue baller bands, they are similar to Livestrong bands. Can anyone point me in the direction where to purchase these? Are they made by Adidas? I called MDen and all they had were the Motts tye-dye ones. Thanks!!!

RR should ban these from practices and games.  Though it is minimal, it gives nothing but a disadvantage to players who wear them.  Players aren't supposed to wear rings, bracelets, etc. and this is really no different.

Fine for fans, not for players.

It's a safety precaution.  The thought process behind the rule is that a would be defender could get a finger dislocated or broken if they grabbed the bracelet.  It may be far-fetched but the justification is that a reduction in the risk of injury far outweighs the minor annoyance of having to remove jewelry and/or bracelets.

Although it's minimal, it's just more equipment for an opponent to grab onto.

The dreadlocks also don't do much for a player, except maybe get his scalp ripped off.  Anyone remember the '08 Miami OH game where one of our guys tackled a Miami receiver by his dreads?  I think there'd be too much backlash if RR told his players to all cut their hair, but those guys are pretty nuts for wearing it long like that.

How dare RR let his team support a children's hospital.  Jesus Christ!  First they practice for 20 min longer, and now they support a children's hospital, WHERE WILL IT END WITH THIS GUY!?  For Christ's sake, the rubber band could get inadvertantly ripped off and result in a ruptured ACL!

-Didn't think I had to explain this was sarcasm, but apparently I do...

Gave them as favors for our wedding a few years back and am wearing one right now.  We got the M Go Blue for Mott. $2 and procedes go to Mott. I think they have both maize and Blue.

I'm very sorry for hijacking this post, but as you can see I am new to the site and still not allowed to post a new topic. However, as I began gearing up for the season I found that Crocs are selling UM sandals on their website for $30 and it's buy one get one 50% off right now. This seemed like the best post to try to get the word out to anyone that's interested. Hopefully I don't get neg'd too bad. Thanks and here's a pic with the crocs website.
