Nah -- and I think the comment you're referring to about shorter shorts was actually made a number of years ago by none other than former FIFA Pres.Sepp Blatter when he was opining on why women's soccer wasn't attracting more fans. Implying that if women players looked more attractive in their soccer gear, there would be more fans supporting the women's game.
His comments were pretty much scorned upon worldwide, BUT -- hold on
I think the length of soccer shorts, women and men's, are way too long. Ditto basketball. To me, what athletes wear today look ridiculous.
And I dare mention at the beginning of this summer I went to a department store with my wife who said that I need some new pair of shorts -- so we looked. Tried some on and I said no way am I buying these, they look ridiculous -- they aren't pants, and they're not shorts -- I may as well just roll up a bit my pants.
Even Bermuda shorts are longer I think than today's "shorts."
I had the same problem with her the prior summer when she bought me new bathing suits that went below my knees. They looked like bathing suits from a 100 years ago! They have been sitting in my drawer nowfor two years.
