The outerwear for the NFL includes pants, socks, cleats, helmet and mask and the mouth guard. Protective under uniform gear includes back and rib plates, shoulder pads, neck rolls, knee and elbow pads. The athletic supporter or cup is one of the most important parts of the uniform.

No, football players no longer wear cups because the are faster and more comfortable without them. Also cups mainly protect you from injuries caused by high-velocity impacts such as baseballs and hockey pucks.

jockstraps

A lot of high school football players wear a cup because they are concerned about getting hit in their sensitive area. I do not think that most professional football players wear a cup, however; I think that they just wear a regular jockstrap without a cup. If you are a teenager and are concerned about getting hit in your sensitive area when you play football, then you should wear a cup so you feel secure.

Do NFL players where cups?

NFL Players wear cups. As a former NFL player, I got out of the league in 2007 and now play Arena ball, you would be crazy not to wear a cup. There are some teams that don't (I think the Eagles for the most part don't) but 90% of other players wear cups.

No, what is used is called a "cup" ... a rather solid piece of hard plastic that helps to protect the male genitals. I haven't the foggiest idea what female baseball players wear for protection.


How many pads does a football player wears?

It depends a little on the player and position, but there are 10 basic pieces of equipment helmet, shoulder pads, a tailbone pad, 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads, 2 knee pads, and a cup. Mouthguards are pretty much necessary, but not really a pad. Outside of that some players also opt to wear flack jackets, back and/or sternum plates, neck rolls, forearm pads. Some players do not wear a cup. (As a point of reference, virtually every major league baseball player wears a cup, while most NFL players do not.)

Why is Rugby League better than the NFL?

At the end of the day, it matters on the person. But persoanlly I prefer Rugby League better than NFL. Reasons are; - NFL requires many gears such as 10 basic pieces of equipment helmet, shoulder pads, a tailbone pad, 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads, 2 knee pads, and a cup. Mouthguards are pretty much necessary, but not really a pad. Outside of that some players also opt to wear flack jackets, back and/or sternum plates, neck rolls, forearm pads. Rugby League players do not have any protection, which mouth guard is optional - NFL is a very slow pace game, after every phase, they stop and have a rest. Rugby League is 80mins full game, spilt into 40mins halves with non-stop action. - NFL is all about the big bucks, since all the players get between two or three digitals and classified as millions, Rugby League does not get that much money, showing that Rugby League players are passonaite about their sport.
