Title: Athletes, teams who wear red win more, study says
Post by: AB.Trini on May 18, 2005, 07:14:11 PM
If this is so , we ought tuh be wearing red aganist Panama.
 
TORONTO (CP) - It's the colour of passion, aggression and power, and if British research on sporting contests is to be believed, it's also the colour of winning - at least more often than not.
When it comes to bloodying opponents, it seems donning red has a distinct advantage, a study of Olympic fighting events and European soccer suggests.

Tiger Woods usually wears a red shirt for the final round of golf tournaments and Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool - who all wear red - have been among the most dominant teams in European soccer for decades.

What it may all come down to is male hormones, says lead investigator Russell Hill, a research fellow in evolutionary anthropology at Durham University.

"It could be those that are wearing the red shirts have elevated testosterone levels prior to actually engaging in the combat sports or a game of football (soccer) or whatever," Hill said from Durham, England.


"But we also would expect that the opposition team are also responding in some way with basically being presented with what is a hugely dominant individual with a massive red stimulus. So this may create a suppression in their hormonal pathways."

Hepped-up hormones certainly figure largely in nature, said Hill, whose study was prompted by research on male mandrills, ferocious-looking monkeys whose faces are marked by brilliant red and blue snouts.

"The colour red there is really the one that signals the dominance of males," said Hill. "The red coloration is related to testosterone levels in males, so dominant males tend to have very high testosterone levels, leading to this intense red coloration."

it possible. Once the country see that the team shaping up for a final push and it looking like it might be successful........ then that sea ah red could be a tsunami. I hope the team start back wearing red to. the kinda uniform ah seeing now not really impressive.

They have to turn possesion into goals.
Score a couple in the next game AND look good doing it and people would be so glad to hear T&T playing good football (not flashy but good) they will come out.
But if is against Bermuda......it harder to convince them it mean anything.

They have to continue improving and follow it up with some results to get people in the stands.
The strikers and mids should be working out some moves/plays to use.....that is in addition to the regular part of training.
