  1. Andrew Crawshaw says:

    Another one sided performance with different standards for each team. Not acceptable.

  2. nick allen says:

    45% -55% correct for decisions seems pretty even to me that could be 1 decision so come on get a grip , certainly not one sided and i think you andrew are showing a little bias not the referee !

  3. Andrew Crawshaw says:

    I beg your pardon I was using the weighted figures which reflect the importance of the decisions, I do not need to get a grip.

  4. Walter Broeckx says:

    Nick,

    Bias can mostly be found in the not correct decisions. There is no big deal in giving a foul that even a blind man could see.
    But when it comes to ignoring fouls, that is where the bias can be found. I have said it before that if I would want to fix a game I would go for the small fouls on the field. That way you give one team a very big advantage. Both teams will feel the different approach and that will lead to more frustration with one team (that will lose their focus on the footballing aspect of the game after a while) and more agression by the other team that feels they can get away with a lot before the ref gives a foul.

  5. nick allen says:

    i still do not feel the referees in this country go out to ‘fix’ matches or to show bias , i do believe that referees are human beings and as such are fallable when one team may spend all the game “in he refs ear” the ref being human gets fed up with them and the ‘small fouls’ are not given. i do not condone this and i understand it is technically bias but i do not and will not accept that our refs deliberately set out to influence a result .

    • Patrick Blaze says:

      Nick it isn’t rocket science.. it’s so obvious that many matches in the premier league are fixed. It’s a waste of time trying to argue against biasness while it’s so obvious. I’ve always said that many matches are influenced by referees like webb and dean..

  6. Walter Broeckx says:

    Nick,
    We sure shouldn’t accept such a thing.
    But when the same mistakes go in favour of the same team (or against the same team) then there is something wrong. Be it conscious or unconscious. But only when you can find “evidence” of even unconscious bias then something can be done about it.

    Also up to now (and we have been doing some research for 3 seasons now) I never have seen things come close to “it evens out”. It usually doesn’t even out.
