No doubt the players on the group (including captain Justin Wallingford and ex-Fronts Cory Emmerton and Bobby Hughes) have some valid concerns, but you know what else is a valid concern? Getting a major artery cut. Still, they make a powerful case:
"...if you want to wear neckgaurds, just go to the Q."Insinuating the French are less than manly. They're the first people to think of that in history.
(UPDATE: The rule is a go, starting March 10. So how many games would Wallingford, as an overager on a non-playoff team, have to wear a neckguard?)
