if I am playing in a game (60 min but only like 23 minutes of it... that's alot of time on the bench of cooling off, warming back up again and the UA compression stuff keeps your muscles warm and your skin pretty dry I'd say for that purpose and also keeps you from getting a staph infection from your gross shoulder pads
Staph infections? Does that really happen?

I will say, after trying Coreshorts, I will ALWAYS use compression shorts, especially because of my wonky groin. That's why I'm taking a look at the compression shirts.

Interesting though, I didn't think of it from the perspective of the warming up/cooling down aspect.
