Reasons why I'd rather play soccer than hockey

Do you realized it took them decades to think that maybe the goalie should wear a mask for hockey? I'm not genius, but I would think a hard chunk of rubber sent hurtling towards your head would cause you to think of protective measures earlier than 1959. That's when Jacques Plante decided he wasn't going to use his nose as a backboard for hockey players.

Should this be celebrated as a great innovation or just one of those "well duh!" moments?
