Top Definition
A phrase that precedes a series of statements that, taken as a whole, are completely incorrect. This phase is commonly bandied about on a certain prestigious law school forum, populated by only a handful of people who happen each to have more than a dozen aliases, giving them the false impression that they're actually socializing.
Law School Poster: OMG top 1% at HYS. chances at WLRK?
To Be Fair: To be fair,

You shouldn't have gone to law school in the first place.

A phrase that often precedes a statement that is intended to offer a piece of information which the speaker feels is important to the conversation.

This phrase often sounds pretentious when used, and will often be followed by a piece of obvious information that nobody wants to hear.
Joe: "I've gained twenty-five pounds!"
Bob: "To be fair, you haven't gone outside at all in the past four months!"

To be fair is a phrase mostly used by people who make a living stealing oxygen from others. It serves no purpose other than to try to make their forthcoming statement sound more profound whereas it actually devalues everything that follows. Should be filed along with "Proactive", "At the end of the day" and "To be honest"
"I've never been to Uganda to be fair"

A phrase which should mean something but rarely does when it's used by sports players - especially British soccer players - and radio/TV commentators. You think the speaker is about to offer a balanced point of view - e.g. "I know I'm critical of X, but, to be fair, he is recovering from a bad injury", but most times, they're just trotting out the same dumb platitudes to fill airtime. Interchangeable with "at the end of the day" and "as I say".
To be fair, it is a Wednesday.

To be fair, as I say, I'm talking into a microphone at the end of the day, Gary
