nfl training camp hazing hairdos

NFL training camps are now underway, which means you die-hard football fans will be rescued from the baseball-only hell that is summer in just six short weeks. As for me, well, I love baseball, so I don’t mind summer at all. But I also love me some NFL, and ever since I got out of high school I’ve looked forward to the beginning of September and the return of our gridiron gladiators.

However, before we all get caught up in the important issues—like whether RG3′s knee will hold up, or who’s going to replace Rex Ryan after he is fired in week three—let’s take a few minutes to enjoy the lighter side of NFL training camps. I am talking, of course, about the rookie hazing, and in particular about the tradition of giving rookies absurd haircuts.

Today we present you with 21 awesome examples of this phenomenon. They won’t help you win your fantasy football league, but they’re still worth a few minutes of your time.

21. Rashad Jennings – Jaguars, 2009

I think they should call that one the funky monk. Or maybe the cracked out George Jefferson.

 

20. Jamar Anzor – Jaguars, 2005

Ah yes, the Dalmatian. A classic training camp look.

 

19. Andrew Economos – Jaguars, 2005

This one illustrates a very important lesson: when hazing somebody with a pair of barber clippers, don’t be too precise. If you leave random patches behind, it will only look better.

 

18. Gamble, Adams, Piller & Rafferty – Titans, 1999

The three on the right look pretty stupid—especially Zach Piller, second from the right. But the dude on the far left, Jason Gamble, kind of looks like a futuristic space villain or something, which is cool.

 

17. Taylor Whitley – Dolphins, 2003

See what I mean about not being precise? It makes the guy look like a mangy dog, which is kind of the whole point, right?

 

16. Reggie Poole – Dolphins, 2003

Then again, if you’re going to be precise, be really precise. Maybe carve a sweet design on the back of someone’s head.

 

15. Patriots Rookies – 2005

Man, some of these guys got it so much worse than others. The guy way in the back just got a basic mohawk, which actually looks really cool. Meanwhile, the guy second from the right looks like a freak show.

 

14. Dennis Roland – Cowboys, 2006

The reverse mohawk—so simple, yet so effective. Another classic training camp hairdo.

 

13. Pat McQuistan – Cowboys, 2006

This poor bastard looks like the baby doll of a little girl with a really mean older brother.

 

12. West & Lua – Patriots, 2007

Is it just me, or does Zach West look like Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) from The Office?

 

11. Doug Free – Cowboys, 2007

See what they did there? They shaved off opposite halves of his head and beard. Very clever.

 

10. Elgin, Rogers & Oldenburg – Patrios, 2007

Here I give the prize for worst hazing hairdo to Clint Oldenburg on the far right. The asymmetry is breathtaking.

 

9. Blake Schlueter – Broncos, 2009

Now, if the simple Dalmatian (remember, no. 20?) looks too neat and tidy for your taste, you can just do this.

 

8. Tom Brandstater – Broncos, 2009

Hey, is that Terry Bradshaw suiting up for the Broncos? No, just a guy with a Terry Bradshow haircut.

 

7. Tiquan Underwood – Jaguars, 2009

It kind of looks like they shaved Underwood’s hair to look like tiger stripes. Maybe they were just being ironic–you know, seeing as how they’re the Jaguars.

 

6. Phil Costa – Cowboys, 2010

This one here was obviously inspired by a checkered flag.

 

5. Olivier Vernon – Dolphins, 2012

Actually, I’m pretty sure that, at one point, Sisquo had the exact same hairdo.

4. Chas Alecxih – Dolphins, 2012

It seems as though poor Chas Alecxih got tie dyed.

 

3. Kyle Newhall Caballero – Raiders, 2012

Simply exquisite workmanship here. Really, first rate.

 

2. Lucas Nix – Raiders, 2012

My only question here is, did the Raiders veterans also force Nix to grow that nasty little trash stash?

If so…wow, well done, fellas.

 

1. Tim Tebow – Bronos, 2010

When I first saw His Holiness with this hairdo a few years ago, I did not believe my eyes. I just assumed this was the result of somebody having fun with Photoshop. But no, this actually happened. And in my opinion it’s the greatest NFL rookie hazing haircut of all-time.
