All Floorball players wear the wrong outfit!

Here is an interesting text that tries to figure out how large of a role the outfit plays in a sport as speed skating

If we then think - in speed skating the resistance on the ice is low and the air drag might play a role - right?
Hm, but then as we look at a running sport as Floorball - is not the runner in mid air as he or she travel in between the steps as a runner? And at that moment the resistance must be even lower than on ice? hmm
It is easy to also look at the best track and field stars on short distance like 100 m dash - is there not some tight outfits and runners in bicycle pants there too nowadays?

So the only main question to solve is what is the name of the Floorball team - that will be first out playing in super tights - like they do in speed skating? If science can not prove that the tight outfit is a bit faster - well then maybe the placebo effect might work.. wonders or the competition will pale as old teams come in big pants and non-tight jerseys?
Then there is another benefit too - the other team can not pull your shirt - and the top Floorball teams would indeed start to not just play supercoool - they would look supercoool tooo - maybe?

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
