FC Dallas all-time balds team

In response to our All-Time FC Dallas Best Hair Team – and with apologizes to Men in Blazers – I felt it was time to do an All-Time Balds Team for FCD.

This one kind of speaks for itself but it was harder than you might think as there’s a difference between really short hair and a smooth dome.


Dante Washington – The Burn striker went smooth in 1997 and never looked back.

Jeff Cunningham – Jeff had hair and often just kept it really short. But there were periods he went clean-shaven.

Toni Nhleko – Like several others on this list, Toni had hair he just often chose to shave his head smooth.

Ali Curtis – He only played for the Burn for half a season but was in a smooth scalp the entire time.

Zdenek Ondrasek – For Kobra it’s usually just short, but from time to time he skins it so we’ll put him in.

Dominic Oduro – Rapidly receding, Oduro seems to have started shaving it completely sometime in 2007.

Andres Escobar – Another striker that varied from just short to full shave.

Matt Jordan – Had some hair when he was drafted but by the time he left FCD in 2002 it was rapidly vanishing. He was full bald well before he retired from playing.

Keeper was a tough one, closest I could get.
