Then again, they would be the least likely to act aggressively, wouldn't they? About 15 or so years ago, a study was done in several sports involving fouls/penalties and the color of the jerseys worn. It was found that teams with very dark jerseys (black, navy, etc.) were called for more fouls than teams in light colored jerseys. Bald and in Black. A bad combination. Jeff Stern JB says: I had a friend, when I was 12. He lived next door, and drove a Red Thunderbird, and got tickets weekly.... He painted the car the dullest possible shade of gray, and only got tickets 1/4th as much. "Clothes Do Make the Man".. Conformity helps, if you want the least resistance. Since I gave up my beloved fuchsia grid pattern, for the Madison Avenue , black pencil striped GOLD, I get double the accolades per month, (two) ...while reffing the same number of games.
