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

The biggest deal breaker is looking like you should be a ripshow, all the while you are the teams grocery bar. They get beaked hard.

I like to wear my shirt tucked into my pants (not the outer shell, the pants themselves). This lets the top part of the back and front of the pants hang out. Is this chirp worthy?


At first I did it because the jersey I bought was too long. Now I find that it's easier to adjust my pants if I ever think they need to be pulled up at all. Personally I like it, but most people don't tuck their jerseys in.

As long as it has nothing to do with your avatar you will not get chirped.

Hey some guys feel comfortable that way.

Nah, it would be all the way tucked in. I suppose there is a chance it could fall out on one side during the course of play though.

He means as long as you're combining it with yellow laces, a tinted visor and wearing #8 you're ok. If you're doing it to try to be like Ovi, well.....

That's not fair... I've been jersey tucking and wearing yellow laces since before Ovie was even in America...

And as someone who carries the Warrior Johnson, yes I get chirped at (mostly from my own teammates), but I carry it because the Dolomite I was using shattered under less than normal stress. I've been using the Johnson for a while now and getting slashed to pieces constantly and so far, it's held up. Great stick for the price. But yes, your friends will think it's funny.

I have played in beer leagues for about 15 years now and the thing that i dont understand is the guys that paint their TUCKS a totally different color and then the paint starts to wear off and the skates look like crap

Saw a guy yesterday at pick up that was wearing a tinted visor, which is bad enough, but his hockey pants stopped about 3 inches above his shin pads. he couldn't figure out why I kept calling him Angus (Young) all session.

Whats wrong with having a mouth piece hanging off your cage? I do that for practices and non-contact games.

because you don't need to have it hanging there if you don't use it, and kind of gross putting it back in your mouth after getting rubbed against rust, dripping sweat, or whatever coating that's on the cage.

Mine is connected to the cage with one of the rubber connecters, Not stuck in the cage. Is that OK?

The most people might chirp at me about are my pro stock oiler pants (has their logo), but I reply that I made the team they were desperate

Otherwise, I either burn them on the ice or fire back with a counter-chirp haha

Go figure eh!

here is a funny site for chirps.
http://www.gongshowhockey.com/main.p...thor=Anonymous

The best is asking the ref if he is pregnant then telling him he missed 2 periods.

I wore pink pads for a tournament in the states. Every single player on ever team had something to say lol. At the start I ignored them, then I sent a couple chirps back and by the semi's they were just repeating themselves so I laughed at it. We won and the guy who was chirping me all game caught an edge and we scored the game winner on a breakaway. Just before the handshake I sent a little wink, needless to say he didn't shake my hand

Don't wear all white gloves. Or skates. If you do, you had better be the sickest person on the ice.

sad but true.. a while ago one of my ex teammates on a coed team gave me a pink hockey stick as a white elephant/birthday gift... I thought it was so hilarious that I actually went into a game with it.. first period was all chirps from the other team (And even the ref)... I finished the game with 5 points...

by the fourth, strangely, there wasn't any more chirping

I still think its pretty weird to be that concerned about another players equipment ( I mean,.. unless they take the ice with a pair of ****ing nunchuks or somethin' )

I'd like to see a concrete definition on the 'chirpable numbers' list. Mine would personally be:

0
00
1 (goalies excepted)
69
99

And that's it

i'm a reborn again skater and dont really care what others say about my equipment. if my equipment effects my play, thats when i make a change. growing up, Gordie Howe was ridiculed for a lot of things, and even when he first started playing hockey. then he found out that checking was legal, and sometimes the refs dont see what's going on. the point being here is be careful who and why you chirp. some people can dish it out harder than receiving it.
