Boston Globe: Like steroids, game gloves enhance performance, too

For the purity of sport
I raise the glove thing because in all the talk these days about purity in sports, the issue of performance-enhancing gloves - and let's be clear here, that's what they are - is never raised. They're not illegal, but they should be.
Fair enough argument, but we then want to get his take on the on-field psychological advantage of mouthguard usage, that pads are for girls, cleats are CHEATING, and the performance enhancing benefits of athletic supporters.

This author must be tough. He punches horses.

Gloves could have prevented this. But we're so glad they didn't.
