This is called defending against cognitive dissonance.

It can't possibly be that the younger player feel Horcoff has been helpful in them becoming pros (because you said so), so it must be because they aren't being honest.

Especially since your critique of the Edmonton media isn't even in line with other perspectives (that the Edmonton Media coddles the Oilers).
