Now that you got me started, another thing that bothers me is that hardly anyone wears real stirrups anymore. I hate the solid color socks and the socks with the stripe are just hideous. Bring back the stirrups.
I think that the stirrups are long gone - only because you have so many players who never really wore them growing up. Agree with the stripe. The Dragons last Saturday were wearing green socks with an awful horizontal black stripe - YEECH!
