    Girl, 11, told by school not to wear 9/11 T-shirt | Fox News


    Published September 14, 2014

    The stepdaughter of a U.S. veteran was told last week that she was not allowed to wear to school a T-shirt to honor the men and women who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
    A veteran should be familiar with wearing a uniform and know better than to try and ignore a uniform policy without specific authorization.

It stated that it did this for reasons of uniformity, however, it's really the money that counts in all of these things. Keith Olberman asking people to find their souls doesn't really take into account that hat regulations are there because of free market contracts. They, the contracts, don't have souls. With that said, MLB has had a contract with New Era (hats) as well as Majestic (uniforms) for a very long time. A single player violating the league's contract could mean tens of thousands in fines for the team/player as well as a lawsuit for MLB by its providers. In the end, the players were allowed to honor the event (the way the league asked them to) and MLB worked out a deal with its providers (even using a lapel can be a litigious issue in major sports). I'm not sure why there would be a problem.
    You forgetting the part where an MLB official came down and physically took away a players hat? MLB can bite the bullet financially if need be, and they did it back in 2001. It was a pretty big thing for a week so, as big as any news story in any event. But back to the original point, so you agreed with MLB's decision then to not let the players wear the hats?

    The whole point of having the uniform in the first place is to remove political messages. The uniform shirt she was supposed to wear had the school's logo, that's not political correctness.

    The whole point of uniforms is conformity, avoidance of behavior problems, control of individual expression and other reasons such as cultural control.

    I'm not. The official made sure the players stayed within the restrictions set by MLB. I don't seen much wrong with that.

    MLB can bite the bullet financially if need be, and they did it back in 2001.
    Major League Baseball prohibits New York Mets from wearing first responders hats on 9/11 anniversary - NY Daily News

    The NFL's leniency towards 9/11-themed uniform embellishments did not extend to Major League Baseball, which nixed the New York Mets plan to wear NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD caps during last night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Mets union representative Josh Thole said the league told the Mets front office there was "no chance at all" of the team wearing the non-regulation hats, and promised a hefty fine for any player who violated the edict. That's the same position the league took back in 2001 when the team wanted to wear hats bearing the logos of first responders for the remainder of the season, but those Mets went ahead and wore them anyway. [New York Daily News]
    It seems MLB didn't bite the bullet isn't taking the hit at all and is instead fining teams which do violate league policy. Again, I'm not sure what your issue seems to be. The league has been consistent in its approach to honoring 9/11.

    It was a pretty big thing for a week so, as big as any news story in any event. But back to the original point, so you agreed with MLB's decision then to not let the players wear the hats?
    The forum wasn't around in 2001 (to my knowledge) and I'm not sure what my position on this issue would have been 13 years ago. However, in retrospect, I see nothing wrong with the league's approach. They were allowed to commemorate the event in other visible ways however, refused. Why? I don't know.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    You could say there is a state interest in controlling political messages expressed by the youth of the country.

    Looking it up, are you referring to MLB players having a flag on the side of their cap on 9/11? If so, I can't see where that would be an issue. It is however a significantly different thing.

    OK, not what I found in my quick search. Your article does not offer enough information to make a real call on whether it was appropriate or not. What was the reason for MLB to ban the Mets cap?
