Tony Esposito webbing


Im sure everyone has heard of Tony O sewing a web between his legs to cover the 5 hole when he was on his knees. I cant find a picture anywhere. I hear if you do stop go stop go on video, you can see it. Anyone have any pictures of this?

I think you have to look at pictures from his college years because I believe that is when he got caught.

Re: Tony Esposito webbing


I just heard a local sports radio guy saying he wore the webbing most of his NHL career and you can see it if you slow down video of him playing. He wore over sized pads, over sized cuff on his glove, that always bothered me about him. I was a Bernie guy so it especially bothered me cause Bernie played it straight and his pads were half the size of Espositos

Re: Tony Esposito webbing


Tony must have hidden the webbing well because I have never seen it in photos. That being said, I have never looked for it either.

I need some ideas, as my five hole is porous to say the least.

Re: Tony Esposito webbing


It wasn't webbing. He used black cloth to fill the space. You can see it very clearly in that photo.

Re: Tony Esposito webbing


I see it . Everything Ive read was he had a nylon webbing sewn in there. It would droop so when he stood up, you didnt see it but it would open up when he went to his knees. Lets not forget the gigantic overstuffed pads. Not one of my favs

Time to get out the needle and thread! Esposito wore goalie skirts, no breezers!

Thanks for the pix! btw- still looking for old skates with those runners, btw.
