Bias – Of course we feel it! We are fans! It’s not just a hockey thing either. It’s the same for most sports fans! I know I have been guilty in the past. I have seen something at a game, been convinced of what I saw, only to then see it back on TV and realise it didn’t happen as I remembered! Post game comments can be interesting at times, often suggesting that referees are biased, usually against the team that lost, but sometimes, BOTH sets of fans think the ref was biased against them! This can be especially funny in the UK, where fans tend to be less aware of the rules It makes me laugh sometimes, when sports fans (One of my soccer fan colleagues is a regular with this) suggest the referee missed several blatant infractions, but all of them by the opposition, while he made several weak calls, but never on the opposition So, here’s a chance to self-assess yourself. I think most people would accept that they see things one way, but how much? Do you think you see things pretty neutrally? Do you accept, once you have calmed down, that maybe your rose coloured specs are actually a bright scarlet?
