The role of bias and undervaluing magazines

Richard argued that goalkeepers have an implicit bias towards diving because that is the norm and what people expect a goalkeeper to do. If you dive and don’t make a save it’s seen as bad luck – but if you stand still and don’t make a save you seem incompetent. The effectiveness of their choice is hamstrung by the bias of their expected action.
