Description In 2005 the number of referees in the top Czech basketball league games was changed from two to three. The aim of the study was to show that the change has led to decreasing negative expressions of players' behaviour on the court. The problem was solved by an empirical, descriptive and causal research with quantitative (chi(2), p < 0.05) and qualitative analysis. Observation of DVD-recorded games (n = 60) was employed for data collection, with focus on two indicators - negative reactions and aggressive behaviour. In comparison of the games officiated by 2 referees and by 3 referees, the higher frequency of referees was reflected in lower frequency of negative expressions of player's behaviour. The results suggest dependence of negative expressions of players' behaviour on the frequency of referees in game.
