Stupid face shields

  1. How am I supposed to get some good faces when the players are wearing those stupid shields. Back in my day it was a badge of honor to have one of your eyes gouged out. :biggrin: Kids today...

    Sorry for the size and quality, these came from the papers web site. My originals are at home.

    Implement the barter systme. I guess in return for allowing you to capture their eyes you could offer to pay for any corneal or retinal damage sustained from a tackle or facemask.
     
  3. That is a shame, I suppose you'll just have to shoot the only field sport with out head gear, soccer.[​IMG]

    Face shields or not, I think these look good. Nice to see football being posted again.
