you don't see too many people with the skate tongues out anymore

i've played with mine out my whole life though. when i was younger i never quite understood how to tuck them in behind the shin pads and since i've used the same shin pads since i was a teenager, i think they're too small to pull off that tucked in look anyways

Tongues out is fine. I'm talking about the Ovechkin impersonators that go the full 9 with the visor, jersey, laces, etc.

My jersey always tucks itself in the back unless I wear suspenders. And even then it gets partially tucked while skating for whatever reason.

Newer shin guards are bigger at the bottom so you can tuck the skate tongue in.

I never tucked my tongues in either until i bought a pair of skates with really thin tongues. Once I tucked them in I got used to it quick and liked it.

1. Tie skates
2. Put on shins
3. Instant "tuck"

I tend to wear my shins a bit large though, so it's never been a question. I couldn't even skate w/tongues out if I wanted to try it.

I've tried numerous times to be a "tongues in" guy, and it just never works out.
It ends up feeling bulky, restricted, and just awkward to me. So, I just keep them out now all the time.

My dad is 64, amd still plays. While most of his equipment is newer stuff, for some reason he never wears hockey socks. He's one of the "sweatpant guys".
Even as a kid(I'm 36 now), I rememember him being that way.
I am guessing he doesn't get chirped at because he is still pretty darn good, and he is one of the nice guys in his league. Seems everyone likes him. Which is cool

The one in our league is about 300 pounds, so he is dubbed Ofatchkin or O'Chub. :p

Why do you say that?

As a "serious goalie" who also sells the stuff I can't imagine what someone would have against a RBK mask or Simmons pads.

Yeah tinted visor will get you chirped at.


Jersey tuck though? Why? I mean I tuck mine in the back because it's a dress on me basically. Haven't heard it from anyone about it either.

I always like the guys who show up to pick up hockey with custom NHL jerseys with their last name and number on them.

Have never heard of any goalie having a pet peeve for either of these things, until now.

There's nothing wrong with jersey tuck.

Guys with bubbles.

I had a teammate with one and he had the best line though, telling people it was a shark tank, not a fish bowl.

What's the point of a tinted visor?

I don't use one, but presumably one of a few reasons-
1. Glare. Some peoples eyes might not adjust so well in an indoor rink environment.
2. To conceal your eye movements from opposing players and goalies.
3. To look like a total bad ***.
4. To look like a complete jerk.

tinted visors are one thing but a mirrored visor takes everything to a whole different level
