A few of these are quite wrong. Sublimated jersey with nickname means you're a rich chump. Actually any jersey with a name on the back means you're a chump.

The chart is certainly open for debate. Jeans *might* be the most expen$ive item on the list, yet is placed as one of the least intimidating. Sublimation makes jersey printing quite reasonable!

I agree with Jeans being low-intimidation, but a team-mate of mine often wears them because his are 'warmer than shorts and provide just as much mobility'. Also, he's an incredible player and often gets marked by cocky sods at tourneys and proceeds to dominate them

A knee brace is not intimidating? If I"m guarding Robo-Cop, I"m gonna keep my head on a swivel.
