Bias

The second paragraph currently seems to be tinged with bias against the decision to replay the events. We do not have any standards addressing bias, so I think this is a good discussion point. On "neutral" pages such as tournament pages, is bias a no-go, or is a small amount of "biased" language fine? EastStroudsburg13 (talk) 14:07, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

I'd say a slight bias can be acceptable (and is often inevitable), although I do think that the second sentence of that paragraph is too biased... strong adjectives or phrases like "furious" or "strongly disliking" should be avoided. Pb5754 (talk) 14:27, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
In my opinion it should be re-framed. Saying that everyone hates the decision to replay the rules just blatantly isn't true, as many people (such as myself) are either ambivalent about it or support it. Maybe just say that many competitors had strong reactions to the issue, as opposed to taking sides.
Also, isn't this the first national tournament to be cancelled ever? The first paragraph makes it seem like there's been others, but I don't think that's true. --Jaspattack (talk) 14:41, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
