Am I the only person who holds onto the knob of their stick?

For those who hold the knob, are any of you defensemen?
No you don't. If you have a knob sized to fit in your hand well your stick does not go flying out.
I have my knob sized so that it pretty much perfectly fits the negative space formed when my hand is in it's natural relaxed curl. I don't have to put much effort into holding it there, and I put ridges in it so it stays very well. I think I've lost my stick in game play all of twice ever, and never when making a stick check.
I'll take a pic in a minute to show you.
I wish I could take a pic with gloves, but they're at home right now.
