American Mustache Institute not fond of Reds new facial hair policy

American Mustache Institute

New manager Bryan Price made headlines recently by stating his desire for players to keep their facial hair in check. The new policy allows beards and mustaches, but mandates that players don't let their scruffiness get out of hand, a la Duck Dynasty.

It was a dubious piece of news at best which stirred up discussion on social media. Now, the American Mustache Institute has voiced their opinion on the matter, and it's safe to say the organization isn't fond of the rule. What exactly is the American Mustache Institute? Well, they've been protecting the rights of, and fighting discrimination against mustached Americans, by promoting the growth, care, and culture of the mustache since 1965, so they know they're stuff when it comes to situations like this.

Anyways, here's what president Dr. Adam Paul Causgrove had to say...

"Coming from a team with one of the most ruggedly handsome mascots, this is a sad and unexpected move from the bald-faced front office in Southern Ohio," the leader of the Pittsburgh-based organization said. "Frankly, we at the AMI are very disappointed in the discriminatory actions coming from the Reds front office. The mere thought that one could 'tame' the facial hair of world class athletes is laughable, at best. From a strategic standpoint, this policy should not sit well with the Cincinnati fan base."

Hey, it's all in good fun, right?
