(Newser) – Last month, the Dallas Cowboys unveiled a helmet decal meant to show solidarity with the Dallas Police Department after five officers were murdered. But on Wednesday, the NFL rejected the team's request to wear the decals during the preseason, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The Cowboys had already been banned from wearing the "Arm in Arm" decals during the regular season, a decision the team's VP attributes to the league's strict uniform rules.
