Butcher introduces game for bar? (14)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

discouragement

Here is my best explanation:

'bar?' is the definition.

'butcher introduces game' is the subsidiary indication.

'butcher' indicates anagramming the letters.

'introduces'+'game'='introducesgame'

'introducesgame' with letters rearranged gives 'discouragement'.

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for discouragement that I've seen before include "Persuasion (against an action)", "Process of making someone lose confidence", "A deterrent" and "That which disheartens".)
