I don't think anyone would disagree with you that it shouldn't happen, but it does. When I broke mine, it was a slushy day and a caught a nasty edge. Yep, that's all I remember. When I came back into consciousness 30 seconds later I was on my face with a broken wrist. There was no lucid moment to remind myself to fall properly or make a fist...

exactly...sometimes things happen so fast you're just reactionary...you dont have time to think of how you can save your wrists..

Yep, and usually the harder you fall too. I'm retarded for NOT wearing wrist guards, considering I broke mine about 15 years ago in Quebec. When I got my girlfriend into the sport two years ago they were the first things I suggested she buy. Can't take my own advice = break my wrist(s) again someday...

hey just looking at the wrist guard thing.
i broke my wrist a couple of seasons ago. wearing wrist guards that were supposedly the best thing to wear.
I know a dude in the emergency room said that if your going to fall hard enough to snap a bone its gonna break regardless. the irony is that i wasnt wearing a guard on my other hand cause i couldnt be bothered getting it under the glove that morning
