Rosy retrospection refers to the psychological phenomenon of people sometimes judging the past disproportionately more positively than they judge the present. I am starting to see this more and more in online forums and social media. In the respect that retired players seem to be given far more credence and respect than those currently playing. For example, I would rate Kevin Debruyne far more highly than Paul Scholes. However many (through Rosy retrospection) would find this laughable. I would rate Hazard over Ryan Giggs, and Luis Suarez over Shearer. But you put these thoughts into the ether and bam! You are shot down for daring suggest that the golden players of that persons generation are not as good. Has anybody else witnessed this?
