* Enforcers in hockey back in the 80s favoured loose-fitting jerseys that could be quickly shed once an opponent grabbed onto them. Since fighting on skates requires pretty good balance to begin with, removing anything that an opponent could hold onto was considered a major advantage. As a result, it was not uncommon after a line brawl to see a good two-thirds of the combatants wearing next to nothing above the waist. The NHL reacted by mandating tie-down jerseys, with untied jerseys being an automatic game misconduct if discovered.
