I had a polycarbonate shinpad shattered by a lunging two footed tackle in a game I went fücking mental at the bloke and if the ref hadn't sent him off he would have had to send us both off for fighting. As it was my leg went black & blue for over a week. That was a Saturday afternoon game where the standard was supposed to be a little better and teams knew that people had to get to work on a Monday. I gave up Sunday morning games after a few years as a large majority of the players were only interested in hurting you if you were better than them... and generally still pissed from the night before.loonee wrote: ↑Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:59 amI don't know exactly when the rule was brought in, a while ago for sure, but when I was playing Sunday morning football i was extremely grateful i was wearing them as i had a couple of pads split by lets's say, over zealous tackles (dirty b***rds) which were late and over the top. If Pro's were allowed to not wear them and it filtered down to local football the hospital's would definitely be busier.

It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.
