What's the deal with mullets?

There are 16 guys on my team and we started out the year with one guys with a mullet (dude looks like a blonde Jagr). Now we're at 4 guys with mullets.

The team we played last night must have had 12-14 guys with mullets. I've noticed that from a lot of other teams too.


I never see mullets in real life. Just on the rink.

So is this a hockey thing? Why is the mullet so damn popular?

Are you talking about real mullets or just long hair? I think a lot of guys confuse the two. A mullet is a very distinct look. Short on the top and the sides and long in the back. Long hair is long all the way around.

I'm talking mullets. Like business in the front party in the back.

Like Jagr mullet (though shorter hair in front)

OK so it's clear you know the difference. I have never seen that many on the ice like you described in your original post.

I can't believe there is a team with 12-14 legit mullets. That's crazy.

You get the best of both worlds. They're bad ass. Would you mess with a peice of white trailer trash with a mullet, no...so don't mess with a hockey player!

Even when I played in the '90s there were barely any mullets being rocked. I probably haven't seen as many in on the ice in my lifetime as you just described

Yeesh.

it's all about the hockey player culture.

hockey players are alpha males, the best of the best, and thus, can look good EVEN with the ugliest hair in the world.

basically it's a statement.
