Players wearing outdated equipment

Recommended Posts

Stockton still wearing the short shorts was so awesome. I'm suprised no other player has gone back to this look to make a statement.

The equipment itself, not the design. Usually done by older players that keep their style with them.

Examples:

Jamie Moyer's pants

What's wrong with wearing pants that show stirrups in baseball? I wouldn't call it outdated, but more of a needed throwback look in today's game of thuggish, baggy baseball pants.
Mccarthy is right i meant the tight mid calf look.
Hunter Pence and Brendan Ryan both do the tailored pants like Moyer did as well.

Not really. Those guys pull their pants up to their knee, but they're long enough to wear at the shoes if they wanted to.

Jamie Moyer's are pulled as low as they can go and they stop midcalf, which was the style in the 80's and early 90's. That's the difference.

While Ryan's are baggier, Pence does have his pants cut short, and they are slightly tighter than Ryan's

But that's not the same thing as what Jamie Moyer did.

What statement would that be making? "I like to wear short shorts" statement.

Norm Cash and his lack of a batting helmet, just a cap protector (probably the stupidest use of outdated equipment):

The statement is "sky's out thighs out". Its a statement on the importance of man-thigh. I don't think basketball is ever going to re-embrace that culture. The man thigh movement isn't really fitting for basketball anymore :lol:.

The Lakers did in 2007 for a night...

That looks so bad, cause the jersey is so baggy. If it were tighter, it actually wouldn't look that bad.

Also, the padded compression shorts really clash with the short shorts. If they went with shorter compression shorts (unlikely) or team-colored bike shorts, it might be better.

Greg Maddux also wore the early 90's tight fitting pants in 2007 with the Padres

And this might also count. Mariano Rivera wearing the same Nike Cooperstown cleats he was wearing since the mid 90's

especially since 90% of cleats today don't have the tongue flap

I wish he could have gone all out and included Michael Cooper-style socks.

Any football player who wears the standard riddell or schutt helmet is wearing outdated equipment, as a current football player helmets like the revo speed are miles away in safety protection and comfort.

^ That same facemask, the Riddell BD-9 was worn by Jim Plunkett until he retired in 1986, and by Mark Duper as late as 1992.
