So here is some research conducted about heat and clothing colors...

So basically, this confirms that white reflects more sunlight/heat than black (by 17%) and that the white's percentage would be higher is it were not for folds in the uniform. The folds trapped reflected heat. NFL jersey's are very tight, meaning no folds, meaning that percentage (17) would be higher because there are not any folds to trap reflected heat.

/thread.

My God thank you. Exactly proves what I've said-there is zero evidence to support that white jerseys are beneficial over blacks, and, more importantly, we now have yet another reason why.

Yeah I interpreted a certain part wrong. The issue I wish it would have addressed, and if you can find something wherever you got that, I'd be thankful-is my *core* issue-is there any link behind jersey color and on field performance?

Not one person has stated that the color black isnt hotter-that's just CatMan's cop out argument-the root matter is this- Is there any evidence to suggest on field performance is debiliated in any noticeable way? There obviously, is not.

Basically, the research pdf was researching army fatigues...so there is not direct correlation to jersey color and team performance..DIRECTLY. One could argue, in an indirect fashion, that that the color may cause someone to sweat faster..therefore losing nutrients faster, which i guess could ultimately effect performance....indirectly. but I'am not the researcher.

Valid, but, if a player is replenishing (Gatorade anyone?) what he loses as quickly as he loses it, is there any further limitations? What I'm saying, is that there isn't any apparent evidence to say there is.

I've had a white and black jersey before, and it just comes to the point where it's irrelevant. It's what you did the week before, the night before, the hours before, that start to count.

Yeah, one would think that..if you sweat more you just have to replenish it more frequently. With players having access to IV's now..during halftime and such..there would probably need extensive research to prove or disprove jersey color. I, for one, don't have the money, time, resources, or education to conduct one..so I guess we'll never know.

Coulda sworn there was something in the lounge on lint.

That's where I'd start. Everyone knows that's the place to get top notch information.
