    Hit the nail on the head for what is so irritating about being a football fan, especially with regards to referring decisions.

    No, not everyone has an agenda, a bias. Sometimes we just did bad and have to deal with it.

    The cynic in me wonders if all this carry on really started in earnest when wages got so large that players stopped caring about rseriously putting any effort in until the moment (usually additional time at the end of the game)when it dawned on them that their lack thereof would look bad to all and sundry.
