OLD TIME HOCKEY!!

Why WOULDN'T you protect your eyes? You wear a jock to protect your berries, gloves to protect your hands, etc, etc... Eyes don't grow back man, and serious eye injuries are no joke.

My dad was just like you. Only took him a puck right below his eye to throw on a shield for good.
I explained all that in the post you quoted.

You play the game which everyway you feel comfortable with, i will do the same. But do not act as if you have the right to judge someone else because of what he/she may be wearing.

Do you wear a neck guard? Why dont you wear a cage? you are taking a "pointless" risk wearing a device that still might not protect you.
