Mini-Quiz: Influencing the Judges to Win a Competition

by Ron Kurtus (9 June 2007)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What lesson do Little League parents give their children when they threaten umpires?

Their parents are good and are looking after them

Threats are the way to win competitions

The umpires are incompetent and probably favor the other team

2. How would a referee or umpire show bias against an argumentative player?

Be stricter in making calls against that player

Refuse to take bribes from the player

Referees never show bias, because it is wrong

3. Why should you be careful when trying be nice to a judge?

The other competitors may get angry at you

You don't want it to look like you are blatantly trying to influence the judge

You should not be nice to judges, because they are the enemy

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Be aware of prejudice
