Spectator moods at an aggressive sports event

, : Spectator moods at an aggressive sports event. Journal of Sport Psychology 3(3): 217-227

Mood scales were administered to spectators attending an especially violent ice hockey game (117) and a relatively nonviolent game (159). Subjects completed the scales either prior to the opening face-off, during the 1st or 2nd period intermissions, or immediately following the match. The between-subjects design revealed an increase in spectator hostility accompanied by a quadratic arousal function for the violent game. The relationship between hostility (and arousal) and the period of play was best described by an inverted-U function. Arousal decreased at the nonviolent match. Other mood states were largely unaffected by the 2 games. The results were discussed with reference to 3 models of spectator moods in which outcome was featured as a major variable.

We studied intraocular pressure (IOP) response to an intravitreal injection of 10-5 M (20 mu-l) endothelin-1 (ET-1) in unanesthetized rabbits, and found a transient IOP rise followed by a prolonged IOP reduction. ET-1 (10-6 M) caused a sustained I...
