Thus the situation provided an affordance to pass the ball to the left-hand side thus allowing the left-side midﬁelder to head for goal. The centre-forward, however, only looked to the right. He was aware that he could pass the ball to the right-side midﬁeld player. This he did. Unfortunately, this player lost the ball when tackled. The centre-forward was not aware of the affordance to pass the ball to the unmarked left-side midﬁeld player because he had not examined the left side of the display.
Moreover, no two situations are exactly the same, therefore affordances may be similar but never identical. While affordances are present at all times, they will not be acted upon if the individual is unaware of their existence. The person must actively search the environment or display for the presence of affordances. A good, though still painful for me, example of this came about when I was coaching a professional soccer team in an important game. The centre-forward had the ball in the centre of the ﬁeld about 40 m from goal.
When we ﬁnd ourselves in similar situations, at a later date, we recall that information and search the environment for the information, or cues, that we perceive as being relevant. Cues that are not deemed to be relevant are blocked by the selective ﬁlter. Visual search As we stated in the last section, we search the environment for cues that we believe are relevant to the task in hand. Research by Fran Allard and colleagues (Allard and Starkes, 1980; Allard, Graham and Paarsalu, 1980) showed that experts and novices carried out their searches in different ways.
