    Why don't Australian football players, rugby & afl wear jockstraps anymore? Whats wrong with them? American football players do & so do the English. We used to, you can see them in old photos, but now they wear speedos, compression shorts etc. Don't the strap makers care about getting the product out there?

    I just think jockstraps never took off over here, so not many players wear them and instead wear speedos, compression shorts and so on. I know jockstraps are still quite the norm for jocks and athletes in America, but over here it never really caught on. I think the whole 'bum baring' quality of jockstraps let it down in the popularity stakes over here IMO.
