Visors and Kevlar socks aren't exactly putting these guys in bubble wrap or taking hitting out of the game. In the Olympics players are forced to wear visors to compete. Yes these are grown men who can choose what they want and if they don't want to play in a league that forces players to wear visors then they can start their own league.

Rules like that can stay in Europe.
