    Default Bias Referees

    I just wondered if there was any reason my team seems to be kicked about the pitch, injured and booked more than the teams i face. I am getting really annoyed i am currently playing as AT Madrid and the referee is always against me. i have my tackling set to light aswell just to see if that could make a difference but it dosent!!!! Does anyone else get this????

    It's called tunnel vision. You suffer from the same affliction as SAF and Wenger.

    Your players might have high aggression, poor ability or you might not be handing out enough discipline. Most likely though, handy is right.

    OMG, there could be SO many reasons for this.

    To eliminate the notion of Ref bias - what does it say about the refs performance after each game...

    Yup. If the ref was biased, it'll say so at the end of the match...

    Becuase it's a simulation, wllm, so it's very close to what happens IRL

    Leverkusen v Liverpool in CL, Leverkusen commit 19 fouls and get 2 yellows, my team Liverpool commits 8 fouls and i get 5 yellows and 1 red card. hardly a simulation of possible real events is it?
    Ref is media-friendly, short tempered and confrontational and Turkish.

    FM is a very realistic game so of course there can be biased referees on occasion. You'll just have to accept it.

    I'm not sure the collective amount of team fouls has any relevance to the distribution of yellow cards. Yellow cards are awarded for such offences that warrant them, besides persistent fouling, and will be shown in any instance of such an offence. They might simply put too much shoulder into the tackle on a regular basis but if you are crunching their ankles and pulling their shirts then you're going to get booked

    always seems to me, that when you are first promoted you get all the calls. First years in a new league I always lead PKs by a disproportionate amount. I think I had something like 8 or 10 Pks for my current save. The others years I may have 3-4.

    Maybe after a season the referees become wise to yours players diving.
