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.
It has nothing to do with hate or jealousy. I just don't understand why anyone would take the risk of getting caught with a puck or stick in the face over a recreational activity/hobby.

That's great that you haven't seen any facial injuries on the ice and I agree that it's a rare occurance that it happens. However, if you become that rare occurance the odds become meaningless.

I liken it to people getting Lasik eye surgery. The odds are in your favor that the surgery will be successful. However, if you are the one that develops complications from it, do you really care that the odds were in favor of not developing complications.
