yeahh it is necessary, not wearing a girdle leaves your hips open to helmets and anything else, the hip or side is a very frequent spot where the football player will take a hit by a helmet, plus landing on your side after getting hit or jumping for a ball is alot less painful if you have your girdle w/hip pads on. It also helps to keep your thigh pads in place if your girdle has pad pockets in them which i have found is a lot easier.
