The Seawolves are sporting new duds in this years edition of the team photo. Let's hear some feedback eh? I like them. I think I've come to a fairly solid hypothesis as to one reason I think the new look will benefit the team. How tangible it is ... is up to you to decide.
Our visual perceptions about reality are influenced greatly by the pattern matching software written into our brains. We can easily identify many things around us simply by shape alone. Put a black outline of a tree on a white background and we know what it is without having to see the leaves and branches.
I'd think that in any instances this season where an opponent hits any Seawolf player ... that the referee is going to recognize an illegal hit easier than if the Seawolf were wearing a solid colored jersey. If a ref doesn't see all of that white above the shoulders then you can damn sure bet some guy from one of eleven different teams committed an infraction of the rules.
So that's my little theory. I think they look good and hopefully in some way they'll get us a couple of extra power plays here and there.
