Cups in the NFL

It's a comfort thing and a macho thing, he says. The cups are too bulky and obtrusive for today's player. (As opposed to gonads swollen to the size of grapefruit, which must be a real treat to deal with.) According to Hatfield, no one wants to get teased by Hugh Douglas for, I guess, the outrageous concept of protecting their nards. The ironic jocularity behind that statement is almost unfathomable.

This article is HILARIOUS.

Actually, I talked about this with Ponder sometime back in college, since I found it amazing (kind of like the author) that football players didn't wear cups. From what I remember Brad telling me, the reason football players at Rhodes didn't wear them was because it could break your pelvic bone if you got drilled there - ie, the cup would be a bigger liability than an asset, protection-wise. If Ponder reads this sometime soon, maybe he could tell us himself. . .
