Hopefully they will get over their machoness like the NFL did decades ago and start wearing them

I'm surprised that there is so much resistance to wearing facemasks. With pucks and sticks flying up in ones face on a regular basis, I'd want to have something there protecting me. If everyone wore one of those, the high sticking penalty would be a thing of the past.

Losing teeth in hockey is a right of passage. No way I see many players adopting this.

I'm on board 100% with full helmets. Either clear or even full cages like in college.

This is the kind of mentality that has to go. Football got over it in the 50s.

you'd be amazed how damn quickly those fricken things fog up.  Even with all the latest and greatest chemical treatments etc.

 

I'm all for a half shield to protect the eyes.  As for the rest...let's forget about fighting and start calling the stick infractions instead!!

 

and bring back goons...you stick my top forward, I'm sending the goon out to kick your ass.

Half shields are fine, I would want my players to wear that.

    • i always thought the unflinching support trump had from a wide swath of conspiracy theorists was one of the low-key weirdest things about this election.  even your "government has been infiltrated by reptoids" venom-type people backed him.


    • Hillary was a typical politician. No more no less. I was not a fan of hers.

      False equivelancy to compare her to Trump. He is an awful human being. Completely obvious to anyone with just an average sense of character judgement.
    • Sources Tell Us "Alabama recruited a shiny toy but (Lane) Kiffin never really knew what to do with it. I don't worry about the talent at all. He could be an all-pro. I just need to know if he loves football." -- NFC general manager NFL Comparison Julius Thomas Bottom Line Howard has struggled to live up to hype that has come with his play-making ability while at Alabama, but some scouts put the blame on the staff and scheme. He has elite athletic traits and raw talent, but must add polish to go along with those attributes. Should become substantially more productive as a pro, but the difference between "potential weapon" and "elite tight end" will likely be tied to his desire and overall football character. -Lance Zierlein http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/o.j.-howard?id=2557856
