I'm surprised that you get dispensation! Surely the plastic ones are made to hinge so it wouldn't prevent you from looking straight?

p.s. found your pic from the player bio's on the hilcroft website. I'll remove this if you want!

I'm not sure that the ELA can give such dispensation? Referees may question that also, and maybe the ELA should take legal advice.

bit late now... my lacrosse playing days are over... but even the great man himself (graham lester) saw the practicallities of not needing a throat guard when you have no neck
