Abstract: First paragraph: Attributions are explanations about why particular behavioural or performance outcomes occurred, and these explanations enhance our ability to predict and control events in the future. Consider for a moment, whether it is even possible to experience sport and not consider attributions for behaviours and performances? How would young athletes develop and improve if they did not evaluate why a performance went well (to repeat that success) or why a performance went poorly (to correct behaviour in the future)? What would sport commentators comment on if they could not debate motives for behaviour and reasons for a team’s success or demise?
