horrible colored jerseys and d-bags are definitely chirp worthy.. but i disagree with skate fenders.

lower end modern skates offers little to no protection at all, i blocked a board pass a few months ago with my x2.0, it hit just below my ankle joint and stung like hell.. no injury whatsoever but imagine if that was a 70 mph slapshot, which i believe is the average slapshot velocity of a good enough player.

i just don't think it's right to chirp someone who's concerned about their own safety.

i'm still not gonna wear fenders.. though i'm always on the lookout for top-end equipments on ebay, i mean if you can get a Totalone stick for $120 - $150, why bother settling for a supreme one80 that costs $120 on retail stores?

I don't even mind wearing used ones, as long as it's still in great shape and those will reduce the price even more. Chances are. even though i'm using top-end gears, it'll probably still costs less than any other players around me.
