Hi Amy,

I think the paper below is close to, if not exactly, what you're looking
for.  It's been a couple of years since I read it, so I'm not sure if the
subjects are athletes, but I think they are.  Here's a link to Jen's
webpage  - she may have a more current publication on the subject.

Jocular abuse in mixed-group interaction. Wellington Working Papers in
Linguistics, No .6: 26-55. (1994)
