There is no reason that a baseball catcher should have basically the same chest protector catchers wore 80 years ago while a hockey chest protector has tripled in size. That goes for the players too, remember when you would see calf definition on players?
Ya thats absurd as well. The players appear to have 2'X4''s hammered together running down from their pant cuffs instead of actual legs to the top of their skate boots; the frikin tongue of which is grotesquely over large & hangin out like the Rolling Stones logo. Not all of them mind you, but a goodly number.... and sure enough, with the exception of a few, the majority of todays goaltenders are not wearing their equipment, the equipment is wearing them. Like Don Cherry and his ridiculous triple thick over-sized collars; suit fabrications that look like his tailor found some new old stock bolts of velvet & velour that were rejected as being too ostentatious & over the top even for the interior designers putting together Graceland for Elvis Presley... in 1957.
