Long Firm Freddie BS: Footballers' shorts inspected (26) RE: BS: Footballers' shorts inspected 09 Dec 13


Fair point, M

Maybe it's Law 4 - basic equipment, which doesn't refer to anything protruding:

Basic equipment
The basic compulsory equipment of a player comprises the following separate
items:
a jersey or shirt with sleeves if undergarments are worn, the colour of the
sleeve must be the same main colour as the sleeve of the jersey or shirt
shorts if undershorts or tights are worn, they must be of the same main
colour as the shorts
stockings if tape or similar material is applied externally it must be the
same colour as that part of the stocking it is applied to
shinguards
footwear

Law 4 was amended to include undershorts in around March 2011 - so why they've only started checking now in the Premier League, I don't know.
