You guys seem to protest so much, I'm beginning to wonder if the hate stems from a little jealousy. Keep in mind, we don't care what you guys think or wear. Not sure why you guys care what we do.
I've always wondered about the visor vs. cage. vs. fishbowl debate. I want to switch to a visor because I'm always annoyed by the wire mesh cage. But at the same time, I'm afraid of fogging (I sweat a lot and when I sit on the bench I can see the sweat evaporating off my face). I'm less concerned with getting my teeth knocked in, I don't play in a league where there's real worry of that happening.
