Having contributed to a discussion about boys/men wearing skirts,
I realise that tight figure hugging shorts are rarely worn these days,
some may say changing fashion, too revealing or inappropriate,
however, sports kit is dominated by lycra, far more figure hugging?

Anyone else want to share favourite sports kit pictures?

Thanks for update, can I delete my earlier posts?
Moderator please will you do that for me.
How does one delete user account if necessary?

There is no need to delete either the account or the other pictures. The Netiquette post at the head of the forum will guide you better. There were only two or three that were across the line.

It maybe just me but I find lycra surprisingly unsexy. Is it the figure hugging and stretch qualities flattening out the bumps? (The poor lad in the top pic is almost as emasculated as a tailor's dummy. ) Or is it that the contours appear to be that of a naked body, but the surface texture and colour are not, presenting a disconnect in the mind's eye?

At least some sports still wear proper shorts, some teams even seem to have them tailored to accentuate the curves of the wearer. This is Aussie Rules Footy. Even the umpires grey shorts are suitably short. (Pic is not public domain but is licenced under Creative Commons Attribution-share alike 4.0, author: Flickerd)

Joe,
Please don't take the hump, as we say this side of the pond.
It never crossed my mind that the webmaster's comment was in any way aimed at you. I considered it as a gentle reminder to those who would want to post in reply to your request for sports pics not to push the boundaries as some have been wont to do in the past.

Cheers

Pedro

Indeed not personal at all. They were a reminder to all about what is posted in the Netiquette post at the top of the list of threads. I simply had to delete a couple of pics that were just the wrong side of the line.
