No Hit League
NCL N o C hoice L eague
grown up men being told what to wear lmao this league is becoming m,ore and more of a big fat joke.
I don't really mean much offense by this, but you are exhibiting a clear lack of understanding of all the factors at play here.
Firstly, this doesn't happen if the Players Association didn't agree to it...they did.
Secondly, if the players were to play for free and waive 100% liability of anyone involved (rink, team, league, etc.), then sure, no one would care, let the guy do what he wants. HOWEVER, that is not the case. The players are being paid very significant amounts of money, teams want to protect their investments and rightfully so. Someone might say they shouldn't care, they have insurance, but that just saves them a bit of money in the future should something happen....it doesn't give them the player back. Also, if everyone was wearing visors, I'm sure their insurance premiums would decrease.
I'm sorry, but the extreme short-sighted views that grown men should be able to decide (it's their life) annoys me to no end.
No worries, everyone is entiteled to his opinion and if that's you opinion I am more than fine with it, I just happen to disagree with you.
The insurance thing is just a big bluff, they use the safety issue as a reason to charge these premium fee but in the end, insurances surely know that they are getting more out of this even if they have to pay sometimes...
Hockeyplayers are tough as nails and will come back till its no longer possible, telling them what to wear is just wrong in my opinion but it fits with a lot of bad decisions this league has made over the past years.
