"</font></font>NFL owners are reportedly set to vote on a proposal (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/nfl-owners-may-make-expanded-pads-mandatory-at-spring-meetings-052112)that would make knee, hip and thigh
pads -- which many players stupidly resist wearing -- mandatory, beginning in
2013.<div class="entry-body">


FOX says:</p>


The rule's genesis stems from the belief that players would be afforded
better protection, which falls in line with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's
safety initiatives. For example, some players who suffer bruised quadriceps
muscles have been found not to be wearing thigh pads.</p>


There are those players, though, who are willing to take that risk. Some
players wear no padding or just use plastic shells that offer a lesser degree of
protection.</p>


I already gave away how I feel about this. I don't care about looking
'stylish,' I think players who don't wear the proper, full padding are just
being dumb.</p>


I hope, obviously, that the measure passes. This is a case of the NFL not
only protecting the players, but protecting them from themselves."</p></div>

I would like to see it made mandatory that DeSean Jackson wears a giant inflatable inner tube.

Same. Or possibly a tutu.
