Bah... I think most players would prefer not wearing shin guards, honestly. They're just a hassle.

I'd wear shin guards....especially against Megan! Take a look at the length of the cleats on her heel! That's at least an inch! I wouldn't want that digging into my shin...especially with how hard she rips em! That's gotta hurt...a lot!!! No

GO PILOTS!!!

4.1.2 Players shall wear shinguards under the stockings in the manner
intended, without exception. The shinguards shall be professionally
manufactured, age and size appropriate, and not altered to decrease
protection. The NCAA requires players to wear shinguards that meet
the standards established by the National Operating Committee on
Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE). This change recognizes
that the effective date for the required shin guard specifications has
been announced by NOCSAE; however, such information may not
be available regionally. Nonetheless, the effect of this change is to
notify member schools that they are expected to be in compliance
with NOCSAE standards. For that matter, players should already be
wearing age and size appropriate shin guards. (For current information,
visit www.nocsae.org.)


The linesman probably knew that although the rule exists, there is no sanction in the rulebook for its violation.

Well its her shins I guess, but a rule, especially a safety rule, ought to be enforced.

Honestly at that level of play, shin guards really aren't going to help a whole hell of a lot... If you get kicked, or cleated you are going to feel it no matter what kind of guard you are wearing (I still have scar tissue all around my shins from taking soft ground studs (like Megan was wearing) to the shin YEARS ago)

I can see the faint outline of her shinguards. As long as they are stamped or tagged as FIFA approved, it doesn't matter the size...as long as they aren't a couple of pieces of cardboard taped together. Notice the wording of "size and age appropriate" is subject to interpretation. In Oregon, the high school regulations call for for a minimum length (I think it's between 5-8 inches) and the guards have to to have the NFHS (I think that's the acronym) stamp or tag on them somewhere. It's one of the more ticky-tacky high school rules and I know a lot of players who hate it; it's even better when you get the refs who bring a tape measure and won't let players play if their guards are a half and inch off. :roll:

I can't remember a Portland women's player in recent history who wore their guards/socks like Logterman's. A lot of them used to sport the Thierry Henry look (socks pulled up nearly over the knee) with high shinguards.

I know people who forgot their guards for games and literally ripped shingles off the snack cut roof and used those... Most refs just have you knock on your shins, and if they hear that hollow sound they let it fly.

One of Clive's mandates was to keep the boots polished and socks pulled up. I know the team boot polishing traditions carries on, much like John Wooden's basketball team sock ceremony.

Sorry to nit-pick on you, but I just couldn't let this one go. In China, the words "martial arts" translate to "kung fu". Kung fu is China's overarching martial art that has many disciplines and forms.

On the shin-guard issue:

High-school referees are admonished to check to see if the guards are reasonable and to verify with the coach before the match that "all your players are properly equipped." We are warned in no uncertain terms that we (and the organization we represent) can be legally liable if an improperly equipped player were to be injured and we haven't followed appropriate procedures.

Some high-school players (especially boys) like to wear 2" shin guards just below the knee. They whine if asked to put on legitimate guards (but they always manage to find some).

As for Ms. Moore, I'm guessing that hers fell out sometime during the match.

This is a lot like the procedure when working softball as well. The coaches confirming the players are properly equipped seems pretty standard across NFHS.

Does the whining go something like, "but I played this way the last game/last week/all year and nobody said anything"? Laughing

Oh yeah! Like every time!

The other one is soccer is securing the mobile goals. They have to have something to keep the goal from flopping over if someone grabs the crossbar. (Not that this should ever happen in a soccer game anyway.) I remember a game at Grant a few years ago where the coach swore that he had never been asked to do this and that we simply couldn't play the game if I insisted on it. But lo and behold, he found a couple of convenient sandbags about 50 years away in the equipment building...
