To stand out from the players
In American sports, the referees usually wear black and white striped shirts. In the NBA, the officials wear grey shirts.
The numbers on cricket shirts refers to player numbers. This is similar to the jersey numbers assigned to the tee shirts of football players. It is used to identify the player who is wearing the tee shirt.
It is belongs to the player. It is about his rank.
The reason referees wear white and black striped shirts was at first to distinguish themselves from the participating teams. Although other uniforms are becoming more popular.
They are the referees vs the linesmen.
They wear numbers for the same reasons that players do. So they can be identified.
It represents to which the number they got drafted.
because you are mean
The NBA refs do have numbers on the shirts for identification purposes so that all the calls that they make can be documented.
They chose their own numbers. When a new referee/linesman begins reffing the nhl, he gets to choose one that's not already taken. The referees have numbers from 2 to 49. The linesmen from 50 to 98. Number 1 and 99 are retired and cannot be chosen.
The NFL is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the American football league, and they started out wearing orange and white
they do not have numbers on their shirts.
there are three referees in the NBA.
depends on what country he referees in
No he is not, he may have good numbers but he is a wimp who gets referees to look out for him.
put the iron straight on the numbers then it will come straight off :)
Some for design, some for the year they founded, etc.
There are 7 referees in a game.
i think there are four referees.
order referees so u can love them with all your heart
The history of the black and white stripes on referees shirts is due to the fact that they are a neutral official used to oversee the sport in question.
