The bad: later in the game I got drilled coming across the blue line by a guy that I never saw coming and I'm sitting at home today with a mild concussion. Came at me from the side where the cage kills my peripheral vision and I never saw him until I was on my ass and he was on his way to the penalty box. That's why I freaking hate the cage, but I think I'm still gonna go with it from now on.
ouch. Hope you took his number for next time. Feel better. I still love the freedom of the half shield; I guess you can liken it to bikers who ride without a helmet even though they know the risks.
