The current rules require a certain level of protection to be worn by the
particpants.  No armor is required on the thighs; however, if one is worried
about getting hit there they may wear extra armor.  Eye protection is
allowed.  If one is worried about getting hit in the eye, they may wear the
eye protection of their choice.  

Pro football players wear it.  Rapier combatants automatically wear it.  Why
can't heavy fighters?

The odds are astronomical.  Let's ask the real question though.  There are
1000 fighters out there and 5% of them are carrying weapons that can blind
you and have come close in the past.  Do you go on the field, stay off the
field or just get rid of the 5%?

The simple fact of the matter is that no matter what the odds they did
happen and I've already mentioned enough as to what choices we're being
given to make sure they don't happen again.  The SCA used to have punch
daggers and Warboards (shields with Thrusting tips)  ONE person got thier
heart bruised and they were banned.  You don't think their serious about 3
people coming close to being blinded?
