    Brian Wilson Refuses to Shave Beard to Join Yankees

    He'll still probably get a nice contract somewhere though.

    Of course he'll get a nice job.
    Good to see in America if you don't like one's corporate policy, you still have the freedom to accept work elsewhere.

    Why does he have to shave the beard to play for the Yankees? This is insane.

    Glad.

    Yankee's and any rule mandating a clean shaven look is absolute bullshit. I have declined job offers for the same grounds. Granted I was in college, and didn't want the job anyway as it interfered with college shenanigans. But a stance was made then.

    Because the Yankee's think their shit don't stink and can make ludicrous mandates on their players, and players will happily oblige these ludicrous mandates because... wait for it... they're the Yankees.

    As a Yankee fan I hate this beard/clean shaven shit....Much prefer the players be who they are

    Regardless, it is their right to have that policy and it's Wilson's right to say fukk off.....Moving on.....

    Yanks can have that policy if they want.

    plenty of employers forbid beards or at least ones that are a mess. J'ever see a cop with a beard ?

    That beard is very much a part of Wilson's identity, plus the NYY will likely be a non-playoff team for a few years.

    As a Yankee fan I actually love this policy...sets em apart from run of the mill franchises. Yankees conduct themselves with certain class and dignity

    Yankee policies are outdated

    Many people don't even want to play there anymore

    Yanks have no future

    No future?

    As long as that empire has a gazillion dollars, which will be forever, they'll always have a future.

    Beards are for guys with weak jaw lines, just trying to cover up their feminine structure

    Odds kraker has the masculine capacity to grow a beard:

    yes +250
    no -400

    kraker its ok if you have more feminine traits than masculine. I bet you were mommies special little boy...
