It's a clear, curved piece of plastic that prevents blindness. It's not a castration. These guys are worth millions. Protecting their eyes should be a given.
I'm not saying it doesn't suck when a guy gets hurt, but if a player doesn't want to wear one why should he be forced to? There are probably more pads you could wear on your forearms to prevent injuries there. Same thing with on your knees. I understand the concern for wanting to keep the players safe, but if it is something that is a rarity and not a regular occurring thing, why force these guys to do something they don't want to because you think is too dangerous.
