All I know is that I can't play at all with ankle guards, cut them off or get guards without them, it's a lot better IMO.

That kid is a legend, too bad no one knows his name (or if at all he is a guy anymore).

i cut them of and here's the good thing,i can still wear them when i want cause im goin to stitch the cut open part and when i have a early morning game when i dont have to wear them for that long,ill put them on,another plus is that i can place the shin guard where i want it,the bad,when my father finds out he is going to go on a out rage but i'll just play it cool and use logic :D

If you genuinely needed to cut off the ankle straps due to discomfort and a negative impact on your playing, I'm sure your dad will understand. And even if he doesn't, it's kinda worth it if it helps your game.

ankle guards are stupid.
i dont really like shin guards in the first place,
but i would definitely try to play without them if i were you and see what happens.
if a quiz is quizzical, then what's a test?

Shin and ankle guards are important. I wear the every match. If i forgot to bring i look for cardboard for replacement.

I think you could be right mate i find that when i train with no ankle guards i never get cramp and then as soon as i wear them in matches after about 10 mins my calves get really tight so im gonna give it a go.. Ill try for a few matches without ankle guards see what happens if i dnt get tight calves then im gonna be a machine! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Yeah i never wore ankle guards before but I was thinking about wearing them since it hurts when you get kicked in the ankle since there is no protection there. But I do think shin guards are important because I have gotten kicked in the shin before without any shin guards on and it hurts, especially when you get kicked with the toes.
