Everyone here seems to be stand up guys, so I do not mean to suggest that any one would plan to do any thing nefarious.
Some people might judge more harshly after they perceive that they were judged harshly. Others might judge harshly if they know they are affecting whom they will compete against in the future.
Personally I could not do it because I would be aware of the above two scenarios and might judge unfairly favorable in an attempt to compensate. This would obviously be a disservice to other teams (not on my table).
