  1. Florian says:

    Now this is the first time I see a 100% bias towards one team. At least that I can remember.

  2. Gooner says:

    Just noticed that NC fouls and free kicks are weight 3 but when correct they are weight 1? Is this right, should be weighted the same I think.

  3. Fred says:

    LMAO! Tiote should have been red carded for a potential leg-breaker on Cleverley after the ball was long gone. It went unpunished by Webb, and lo and behold even with the benefit of TV replays you conveniently missed that one too. RVP’s was deffo a red though, yeah? LOL. The site that claims to expose referee bias is itself inherently biased. Abysmal.
