Sport is death free combat, so it might be kind of cool to adopt the war paint various cultures have employed throughout history to make them look more intimidating.

If sports is about entertainment, I think this would make it more entertaining.

A team might have one standard look that doesn't change like the rock band Kiss or they might change it up for every game making it that much more interesting. Tune in just to see what the Las Vegas Raiders are wearing this Sunday.

Let the creative community have a place in sports. Xenzag getting hired by Manchester United as warpaint designer? You wouldn't be curious to see what they hit the field with for today's game?

Tell me you wouldn't be rooting for the person who came to the tournament with this beautiful war paint on. [doctorremulac3, Jul 05 2022]

For [tatterdemalion]. There's also fully-water-proof make-up for synchronised swimmers. [neutrinos_shadow, Jul 06 2022]

They already do this. https://www.mentalf...black-athletes-wear
They say it's to reduce glare, but I think there's some warpaint effect too. [doctorremulac3, Jul 07 2022]

       Not doable for baseball. There are already issues with pitchers using illegal substances to alter the pitch trajectory.   

       For any event the face paint would run as athletes got sweaty.

       Doesn't happen with MMA "fighters" or the guys from Kiss.   

       And I know from experience, stages can get hot as hell.

       Actually, now that I think of it, athought it would be pretty straightforward to prevent, the facepaint running and turning into a mess might be kind of cool.
