    Because the use of bias for everything drives me potty.
    "I am biased towards that team."
    "There is a bias towards that team."
    "My skirt is cut on the bias".

    Now that last one is my favourite, because when people say they are "bias", you can imagine that their bodies are somehow diagonal

    ETA Or that they are so very, very biased that they epitomise it. "I AM BIAS!"

    You can show bias towards something, but you are biased.

    Bias - noun
    Biased - adjective
