I'm with Jack. Completely agree.
And Pesa, completely agree with you.
My take on the visor thing, bc its mandatory in juniors/AHL, you're seeing more and more guys who fight wear them bc its just normal to them and they're used to it. I don't know if McGinn would wear it or not if it wasn't mandatory especially in the AHL.
Also, these guys who fight in the AHL (like Newbury) are imo not worried about the visor bc they'd have to do it regardless unless it's a square off. It is what it is. To complain constantly about it and claim it's the only reason a guy lost/didn't win etc. is blatant homerism and making excuses. Guys know what they're getting into when they decide to scrap and Newbury wanted McGinn.
I'm almost positive if this were 35 years ago the same "visor" whiners would probably have complained that so and so lost a fight because he was afraid to throw a punch bc so and so was wearing a helmet and the other wasn't.
