I don't get it. I think I read some guy on here also doesn't wear thigh padding while playing ice-hockey. What's the deal? Is it an comfortability thing? An ego thing?
I actually feel more uncomfortable playing without protection with the looming threat of a serious injury.

Most of the modern protective gear are made so well they don't significantly hinder players movements anyway.
