    Talking The All Pinks?

    From All Blacks to all in pink?
    By TERRY SEFTON - The Press | Saturday, 23 June 2007

    The All Blacks might have to change their black strip for a pastel pink to truly maximise their chances of winning this year's World Cup.

    Research coming out of America suggests the black jersey may be the side's biggest handicap heading into the tournament in September.

    Thomas Gilovich, professor of psychology at Cornell University in New York, has studied how black sports uniforms affect a referee's mindset when awarding penalties.

    His results should be of concern to All Blacks coach Graham Henry.

    The study focused on America's National Football League (NFL) and National Hockey League (NHL) and found teams wearing black uniforms were more likely to be penalised than those wearing a lighter colour.

    It also found teams wearing black uniforms were ranked near the top of their respective leagues in penalties.

    Gilovich says there are two reasons why black uniforms tend to attract more whistle blowing.

    But you have to admit, you can't miss them in a crowd. Shell should be able to pick them out immediately, unless she's colour blind.
