Comment: I heard Mark Schlereth, former Denver Broncos offensive lineman
and current ESPN commentator on NFL Live, used to piss his pants on
purpose to annoy opposing defensive players. Is that true?

Most cups aren't watertight, at least not the ones I've worn. They have to breathe somewhat, or rashing develops.

When I played baseball, the cups I wore all had big holes in them, for breathability. As Casey points out, rashing is a concern, but there's also the fact that they'd be too damn hot if no air were allowed to escape.

But anyway, the comment may be in reference to Schlereth's nickname, "stink." From what I've heard, the nickname has some relation to the eskimo delicacy stinkheads, but I can't vouch for the authenticity of that statement.

I've read stories about athletes, specifically NFL Players, defecating/urinating in their pants. However, the reason I recall hearing was that there is simply not enough time between plays to run to the bathroom, and they have to keep playing, so they just let it go. I'd hate to be a quarterback if your center is doing that, though.
