    Wear something bright to prevent you or your equipment from getting shot & covered with dyed veggie oil! ?

    If your talking about speedball or somethin', just get a good telephoto setup and stand as far away as you can.. but you might want to rig some kind of plexiglass cover :lol: Even with all the the nets around you can still get shot.. I got shot walking away from a field in a tunnel with net all the way around and got shot in the crotch.. I still cant figure out to this day how that happened...

    I took a few shots once out on my cousin's field, but i was REALLY far away from the action, as it is very difficult to look through the viewfinder with a mask on, i wasn't really impressed, other than that you could stage a few shots. when shooting with a camcorder, i wore a referee vest so no one would shoot me, but you're definitely taking a risk... other than that, yeah, use someone else's camera... :lmao:

    ummm.... ouch. i have scars on both my elbows from taking close shots while wearing a short sleeve t-shirt and i've taken a few point blank to the torso, but been lucky so far otherwise... usually i get hit in the goggles, no pain!

    Well I'm a player and a ref. so I know how to not get shot for the most part.
    Would a plexiglass sort of cage thing distort the picture or anything?

    anytime you introduce any kind of glass/plastic between the lens and the subject there is going to be a decrease in picture quality... how much of a decrease just depends on the clarity/cleanliness of the protective gear...
