Men receive 74% of code violations

According to data obtained by the Daily Mail, the men have received 74 percent of code violations handed out since 1998.

It would be higher, except the women have an overwhelming lead in the coaching violations category (64 per cent of the total).

The men earned 87 percent of racket abuse violations, 81 per cent of unsportsmanlikes, 79 per cent of verbal abuse calls, 71 per cent of audible obscenities, 65 percent of “visible obscenities” and 58 per cent of ball abuse violations.

More surprising? The grand total of code violations – over 20 years – is just over 2,000 – or roughly 2 1/2 per week.
