I say this as a player who always wears a full cage; wearing one doesn't mean it's open season to wave your stick around my head.
Even though I wear a full cage I still bark at people to keep their stick down. One of the worst offenders is a kid (he's 13 yrs old) who shows up to our pick up skate.
The guys I never have to say anything to are the guys who've played at a very high level.
