Wrist wristbands have been around for a long time. They were originally created to keep kids from running around with tennis racquets, baseball bats, or any other rough play toys that may have come around the neighborhood during those days. Back then it was not uncommon to see a kid with a football wrist band broken into a ball. These breakable football wrist bands made their way from the local Junior and Senior High School to the College and University levels. In fact, the NCAA is the first major sport to have implemented this type of protective measure.
The NCAA has banned the use of these wrist bands. In past years these football wrist watches were extremely popular and readily available at almost any sporting goods store. It was always a simple thing to put one on and take it off as needed. Now, with the new NCAA rules many schools are looking to eliminate or limit the use of these football wrist bands.
There is some controversy as to whether or not the NCAA should ban the wrist bands altogether. Proponents to allow football wrist bands claim that they increase the safety of the players. These football wrist bands can be easily removed without causing any problems or injury for the player. They can be taken off by another player without anyone getting hurt. Opponents to wristbands claim that the players will just put them on and then they can go crazy with their moves, which is why the wristband was invented in the first place.
Wristwatches on the other hand claim that the removal of the wrist bands decreases the player’s speed and efficiency when it comes down to tackling. The opponents of wrist bands claim that the players should be allowed to use whatever device they feel most comfortable with. It is also important to note that most college and professional teams now allow players to wear whatever wristband they feel is necessary. This is especially true of very popular football teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears. The NFL has even come out in support of the players wearing wristbands.
Both types of football wrist watches come in a variety of styles. The cheaper models are made of plastic. They are not as durable as the more expensive models. Many of the cheaper football wrist watches have leather straps, but they are much less stylish. The higher end models are made of more durable materials such as leather.
In summary, football wrist watches do have some advantages over the wristbands. They are convenient and easy to take off and replace if lost. They also provide more information than the wristbands, such as time and weather. They are relatively inexpensive, but many of the cheaper watches are not as durable as the more expensive ones.
