Description:
DESCRIPTION

"TEARABLE ATHLETIC UNIFORMS"

The present invention relates to tearable athletic uniforms which consist of pants and a shirt and are used in team sports, e.g. football, basketball, handball etc.

Such uniforms, which are manufactured using both common fabrics, which when violently pulled are elongated to a relatively minimal degree, and elastic uniforms, are nowadays globally used in said team sports and are known for decades. However, as regards the former, their small elongation and, as regards the latter, their inefficient elongation, particularly when pulling is exerted vertically thereto, do not aflow a player of a team sport, when its uniform is violently pulled an opponent, to continue playing and complete his effort to achieve his goal. The player becomes inefficient, even when he is in the final stage of his effort, since due to the violent pulling he is either displaced from his path, held or forced to fall. Furthermore, many times it does not allow the referees to spot the misconduct and penalize, affecting the progress and final outcome of the match. This is relevant as it is known that the final result depends in most cases on one or two critical events in the match. Finally, it does not allow spectators and TV viewers to have a clear view of the misconduct, in order to establish a correct opinion of the disputed event. Thus, these events, when effected, either remain incomprehensible or are characterized as disputed.

! The advantage of the present invention consists in that, when applied at the time moment of a misconduct, the misconduct becomes ineffective for the misconducting player and also directly and unambiguously comprehensible both by the referees and by the spectators and TV viewers.

According to the invention, it would also be desirable to manufacture the tearable athletic uniforms in two types, i.e. those which will comprise pre-defined weak points for the intended and controlled tearing upon violent pulling, and those with a single weak tearable fabric. Both types are desired to be offered in two sets of uniforms, those with a single fabric (summer) and those with a double fabric (winter).

A simple presentation of the tearable athletic uniforms, of a single or double fabric, both those with the predefined weak tearing points (i.e. uniforms made of suture materials of reduced strength, on the individual pieces of fabric, which constitute it) and those with a single weak tearing fabric (i.e. uniforms made of a fabric of reduced strength and with materials of reduced resistance to pulling), according to the invention, is that both have a common .major feature, the predefined tearing capacity (Figure 1 (1), Figure 2(1 ), Figure 3(1),. as well as the removal of a piece of their fabric, compared to the non- tearable and currently used common uniforms (Figure 12 (2)). (Optionally, a photograph is given in Figure 1 1 (2), which depicts an event of real match and is given only for the better understanding of the effectiveness of the present invention also under the conditions of a real match), so that due to the tearing of the fabric the purpose of the present invention is achieved, which intends to make a misconduct by an opponent, in case of a violent pulling, both ineffective and directly and unambiguously comprehensible, in Figure 13 (1) (which is a single-fabric uniform), in Figure 14 (1) 9) (which is a double-fabric uniform). This feature, the predefined property of the tearing of the uniforms, constitutes the common base of all the variations of the tearable athletic uniforms, for the accomplishment of their purpose, which consists in the use thereof in team sports (football, basketball, handball, etc.) and in their considerable benefits to the users during matches. This invention has been unknown so far and thus has never been applied in team sports beneficially, and is disclosed for the first time in the present invention.

In order to facilitate the reader, same reference numbers are used to designate common elements in the figures.

The invention consists in the use during athletic matches of tearable athletic uniforms characterized by predefined tearing and by a removal of a piece of their fabric, during violent pulling by opponents, Figure 13 (1), Figure 14 (1) (4), a tearing which is different from that of the known, non-tearable common, but also elongating athletic uniforms, which have been used so far in athletic matches, Figure 12 (2), so that due to the particular feature of the tearing, in case of violent pulling of the athletic uniform by an opponent, the tearing of the athletic uniform, which constitutes the basic feature and property of the present invention, provides the following active and passive benefits, which constitute their main goals.

Active benefits: The violent pulling on the shirt or pants of a player, which is the user of the tearable athletic uniforms, the pulling being effected to block the player, does not have the intended result for the opponents, and additionally these misconducts are unambiguously comprehensible by the referees and the public. In particular:

a) During a violent pulling, the direct holding, pushing or falling of the player on which the violent pulling is effected is not feasible, since this is blocked by the direct tearing and the removal of a piece of the fabric of the athletic uniform, resulting to the release of the player from the violent pulling of the opponent, Figure 13 (1 ) and Figure 14(1), so that on that critical time moment the continuation and completion of the attempt of the player is feasible, e.g. striking, maneuvering, chasing, jumping, passing of the ball (in football or handball), or respectively jumping, chasing, striking the ball (in basketball etc.), with the advantageous relevant results. In the example with the accompanying figures, the ball, during misconduct, remains under the control of the player, which is the user of the tearable athletic uniform, Figure 13 (3) and Figure 14 (3), who due to the tearing of the uniform gets free from the opponent and has the ability to complete his attempt, contrary to a player using a non- tearable athletic uniform, wherein during misconduct the ball is completely out of his control, Figure 12(3), due to the non-tea rability of the common uniform which he uses, Figure 12 (2).

b) The violent pulling exerted on the player is directly and unambiguously visible, since this is enhanced due to the tearing of the athletic uniform, Figure 13(1) and Figure 14(1 ) and is easily detected by the referees, who will penalize this misconduct, e.g. foul, penalty kick, dismissal etc., contrary to Figure 12 (2), wherein the misconduct is difficult to discern and thus may remain undetected.

c) The referee cannot overlook a misconduct, even if he would like to, since the misconduct is unambiguously apparent and remains. i.e. the torn athletic uniform Figure 13(1) and Figure 14 (1 ).

d) Upon tearing of the athletic uniform, the misconduct is directly apparent both from the spectators and the TV viewers, resulting to a correct opinion on the disputed event, and the elimiriation of disputed events, since they are all apparent and demonstrated.

Also the use of the tearable athletic uniforms will be advantageous and provide valuable services, particularly to those teams which are based on the superiority of the skills of their players individually and altogether, so that they exhibit, exploit and benefit from their superiority, due to the use of the tearable athletic uniforms. This advantage is huge and valuable, since it is known that in these sports huge financial and other interests are involved and where many times the final result of the match is determined from even one or two critical events.

2. Passive: Due to the above-mentioned negative impacts on the misconducting opponents, it is easily apparent that the tearable athletic uniforms will constitute a major preventive factor for the opponents, as regards the said misconducts against the players-users of the tearable athletic uniforms, since the misconducting players will know in advance that these misconducts are fully ineffective and thus they will not provide any benefits for the opponent players and their team, in relation to the intended result during the event, but contrary due to the unambiguous demonstration of the misconduct, this are directly comprehensible by the referees and the fans, with all the negative consequences for the opponent players.

It will make the matches more interesting and honest, since games such as football are not played with the hands, with violent pulls, but mainly with violent hugs, which typically occur nowadays and many times remain incomprehensible and without penalties.

It is also apparent that the application of the described invention, for the above-mentioned reasons, is highly advantageous for teams, the players of which use the tearable athletic uniforms, compared to those teams, the players of which use the currently used known, common conventional or elongating athletic uniforms. The huge benefit for the users of the products of the present invention is also apparent and unobjectionable.

According to the invention, it is also desirable that the tearable athletic uniforms are manufactured in two types. Those with the predefined weakness points arranged in various combinations and forms, Figure 1 (1), Figure 3 (1) and Figure 5 (1 ) (side view) and those with the single fabric of sensitive weaving and composition, Figure 2(1), as well as in two compositions, the uniforms with a single fabric, i.e. the tearable shirt and the tearable pants, Figure 1 (1 ), Figure 8 (1 ) and figure 3 (1), for which it is desirable that these have inner fitting non-tearable short pants, Figure 4 (1 ) (4) and Figure 9 (1) (4), so that in case of tearing of the outer pants after the violent pulling, the appearance of the player wearing the tearable uniform is not affected, Figure 9 (1) (4) (summer uniforms), and uniforms with a double fabric, wherein the outer fabric is tearable, Figure 1 (1) and Figure 2 (1 ), and the inner, the common fitting shirt, Figure 6 (4) and the fitting short pants, Figure 7 (4) and the uniform in full form, Figure 9 (1) (4) and the Figure 14 (1) (4) (winter uniforms).

For the achievement of the feature of the invention, i.e. the tearing of the fabric, any suitable materials or combination of materials may be employed, as well as any weaving or knitting or any combination of weaving or knitting and techniques, as well as any suitable technological means, which provide the capacity of the required tearing of the fabric, to achieve the purpose of the present invention.

Figure 12 shows the result upon violent pulling, when this pulling has been exerted on a player wearing a currently known uniform. The result of the violent pulling is that the player is held effectively by the opponent, Figure 12 (2), and the ball travels away from him, Figure 12 (3), thus the chance is lost, while the misconduct is likely to remain unobserved and without consequences for the misconducting player.

Contrary, in Figure 13, the same event is shown, upon the violent pulling, when this has been exerted on a player who uses the tearable athletic uniform. The result in this case is that the player, after the tearing and the removal of the fabric, is released and thus is not held during the misconduct, Figure 13 (1) and Figure 14 (1), and does not lose control of the ball, Figure 13 (3) and Figure 14 (3), as it occurred in Figure 12 (2) and Figure 12 (3), but contrary, the player, now released from the opponent player, still keeps control of the ball and thus may exploit the chance, Figures 13 (1) (3) and 14 (1) (3), while the misconduct, which is demonstrated unambiguously, with the tearing of the uniform, will not remain unobserved and without consequences for the misconducting player by the referees, as well as by the spectators and TV viewers. Embodiment of the tearable athletic uniforms

In order to make the effectiveness of the present invention apparent the following embodiment is given. A player proceeds from the center of the field to strike a goal. In case that an opponent player attempts to hold him from behind, by pulling him from the uniform (shirt - pants), then if the attacking player wears a known uniform will be held and lose the chance to strike a goal. The benefit for the team of the player, who was held, will be a foul after the center of the field (i.e. a minimal benefit) as well as a card for the opponent player. On the contrary, if the player, who was held, wears a tearable athletic uniform, the tearing of the uniform caused by the pulling by the opponent would release him and allow him to proceed towards the opponent's goal, to strike a goal. Parallel to the completion of this attempt, he and his team will benefit from the card booked to the opponent player. It is apparent that the difference is enormous as regards the result, between the currently known athletic uniforms and the tearable athletic uniforms.
