I GUESS IT WAS ABOUT A WEEK AGO, I WAS REFING A GAME ON SATURDAY. I HAD MY REF MASK ON AND A BRITE YELLOW SHIRT. I WAS WATCHING TWO OF MY FRIENDS DUKE IT OUT. I HEARD FIRING COMING FROM MY LEFT. AS SOON AS I TURNED TWO BALLS CAME THROUGH THE BUSHES AND GOT MY RIGHT IN MY BABY MAKERS , IT IS THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD, SO TAKE IT FROM ME, WEAR A CUP.

No way - a cup hit is sure to break the (the one you git shot with, that is). Loose baggy pants/fatigues are the best "armor" for that area. Far more likely to get a bounce....
reffing is a different story though - a cup might just be worth it.

I don't wear a cup. I've had many close calls and probably should but i've tried every size from my hockey days and still haven't found one that fits well and doesn't hurt that area. I'm eventually going with some slider shorts with the built in soft cup, but i haven't gotten to that yet. One thing that i have done though is put a folded t-shirt in there for protection which isn't nearly as uncomfortable as you might think

All I have to say is once I went to the urgent care clinic, I saw the doctor write on his tablet:

"Testicular Trauma"

I don't care if it doesn't give bounces, I wear a cup now.

HA I LOVE TALKING IN CAPS AND A REF SHIELD IS A GOOD IDEA. BUT LUGGING A REF SHIELD IN A THICK BRUSH WHERE I PLAY IS NOT AGOOD IDEA, THE GUYS I PLAY WITH HUNT REFS WITH SHIELDS, I MEAN YOUR JUST A WALKING TARGET THAT PEOPLE LIKE TO SHOOT AT.

Are you saying you should not wear a cup because it might break? So you want to get bounces? I call myself out on bounces sometimes, because they hit me fair and square.

Bounces hurt more than breaks...and I think a ballshot would be worth calling yourself out on regardless....so you might as well just wear a cup.

I almost lost the family jewels once, so I'm a little nervous about anything hitting the nether regions.

OH AND LIEK OMG TYPIGN IN AL CAPS SI SO COL!!!1ONE!

i dont wear a cup, too uncomfortable, i wear a tea towel down the front, its move comfortable, moves with your body and doesnt shift into awkward positions
dont make people a priority, who are only making you an option

I have never worn a cup, I dont ref though. My advice, dont wear a cup, carry a shotgun. ;)

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

Dude calm down I promise it will be okay. I promise.

Really the whole shotgun thing, it was a joke. I hope you never took it as serious advice.

I had a rip snorting diatribe here but it is not worth getting hit with the ban hammer. Again dude, it was a joke. I really dont appreciate you getting short with me.
