Pros wear HUGE jerseys?

Ive seen some of these threads for pro worn jersys. Ive noticed that ALL of them are HUGE, all XL and XXL, even the women. Whats the point of that, just to catch bounces?

i think the general rule is get a jersey one size bigger than a shirt you would normally wear. smaller jerseys could get constrictive, especially for the snake players who crawl and play tight alot. plus definatly for bounces.

Lets say 2 players are wearing jerseys

One is tight while the other is baggy. When a ball hits the tight jersey the impact is more sudden, breaking the ball. When the ball hits the baggy jersey it has more time to decelerate and the ball doesn't break because there is less of a sudden impact.

This is the same reason bounces hurt worse

it helps some to prevent constriction, but it's really just another way to catch more bounces
