What gear will get you "chirped" at? (Besides a tinted visor)

Keep using that Sherwood and complaining about chirping. Go play another sport, we don't need you.

Expensive equipment, but you suck.

Your stick costs 500 dollars ? All of my gear doesn't cost over 300...
You scored a goal once ? I score regularly.
Sometimes with that stick you can raise your slapshot ? I fire laser beams consistently.

Am I the only one who didn't know what "chirped" meant until I saw this thread? I grew up on the west coast if that means anything...

Nothing wrong with a Sherwood, even though I don't use one. And I wasn't complaining about chirping in general, just chirping for stupid things.

I wasn't even chirping you and you called me "an idiot". This just means I should def chirp guys with wood sticks because it gets under their skin ahahha

99% of chirping is over "stupid" things.

Yah, I don't think this stuff happens out here. I see some rather odd equipment but it usually just means the guy is flat broke, married or has a couple of ex wives. In the lower leagues you'll see the old ass skates, the half cages, pants that look as though they may vaporize at any point if the guy gets enough speed. In the upper leagues most guys have newer gear, a lot of $200 sticks and it's generally regarded as the norm. I think it's regional and financial, what's normal in SoCal is flashy in Idaho, etc..

Some of you guys are very...particular? i.e. I use a True Vision cage (did not know until a week after purchase) and tucked my jersey on hotter days (I also play rollerhockey in the summer) and never got chirped...that being said, I would chirp at...

The Jofa helmet (Petr Klima lol)
Fishbowl/full face visor
colored/shiny gloves
expensive stick.
mouthguard hanging out/the aforementioned one
tinted visor definitely is chirpable.

I think thats it.

Im not saying that this ^^^ isnt true, but i have played tourny's all over North America and played teams from all over North America (and Europe for that matter) during my time in minor hockey and everyone chirps (i dont mean every individual, i mean it is far from uncommon). I have been to a few tourny's in Senior in different parts of Canada and the US and chirping is still quite common.

Maybe it is less common at lower levels, but A and B it is quite common.

I cant see how anyone who has spent time in Minor hockey or spent a significant time playing any organized hockey doesnt know what beaking is.

the biggest misconception so far in this thread is that if someone beaks you they are mad or "pissed off" at you because of your gear etc

What would the doctor's note have to say? Something like, "My patient has a condition which makes being hit in the face injurious to his health, and his face."

To the dude that was asking about it, the tinted visor is probably the biggest offense out of all of these.

Sorry.

Agreed. I rarely say anything to the other team, but if someone does something to a teammate or takes a swipe at the puck when the goalie has it covered, i'll be there to push and "chirp". I'm more of a, i dont want talk smack, but rather let my talent do the talking.

I'll joke around on the bench about a player. We have a guy in one of our league who wears a blue visor with a blue helmet and he looks like a complete fool. I don't go up to him and start singing Eiffel 65 or anything.

16 years but I've also never heard the ABCD league before either. Out here it has always been bronze, copper, silver, gold. I've played on gold teams, I've played on sponsored teams, in my day nobody talked more trash than me but I've never heard anybody chirp somebody for wearing new gear. So far it's been the same for all the Canadian posters and you have 1 guy from Texas, Utah and California saying this is something they've never heard of. I sense a trend.
