Questions about Elbow/Knee Pads

Ok, Im looking to get some elbow and knee pads when i get my jersey in a few days but ive seen 2 different kinds of them. One that are the long ones like this

and ones that look like this

I dont know anything about them so if you guys could help me i would appreciate it so much. Do they both serve the same purpose or are some better then otheres or what?

I'll jump in and say you want the longer elbow pads....

They serve two main purposes. First is to provide protection while doing things like sliding and second is to give some bounce factor.

Either way, you want the forearm protection. If your sliding or belly crawling, you'd be surprised at how much of your forearms contact the ground, sticks, ect... while doing so. I'd probably also recommend either upgrading to the Empire Vents if your going that route or maybe the Eclipse ones...
