    Default Does the referee ever get it wrong?

    When there is a dubious penalty or offside etc you get the chance to criticise the ref but then you see that the ref got it right.

    I only moaned once and I was wrong and the ref was right but has anyone seen a report where the ref was wrong?

    Just wondered if it happens.

    Yes. Rarely though I think.

    Unfortunately I don't take screenshots of this sort of thing

    Yes, for and against the human contrary to popular belief. In one game the other week my opponents scored when 5 yards offside and it was allowed.

    Yeh, ive had it happen twice, once in my network game and once in my long term save. Complained about both and the FA were surprisingly quiet, i want the referee disciplined or something.

    Yes it happens but like Lucas Weatherby said it happens very rarely.

    Absolutely it happens.

    I goes both ways; I have certainly looked back on replays and seen my players scoring goals from offside positions and have them stand (I watch back on goals scored, pausing regularly because I'm often writing match-reports for my story in FMS).

    However, when you get the option to criticise the ref as a news item, generally you are going to be told that you were wrong. You'll know that the ref was wrong when the FA decides not to say anything! If the ref was right, you'll quickly be slapped with a warning.

    Generally, it's better to just shut your yap and just get on with it.

    it happened to me on 9.1.0 in the league cup final when keane scored a goal for me and it was called offside but i checked the replay and he was never in an offside position, not even when he scored! Naturally i ripped into the referee after the game.

    it does happen, it is hard to spot though, as it rarely happens.

    Off-side is the most obvious culprit but the ref can get fouls wrong, penalties wrong etc.

    Rarely do they get corners, goal-kicks and throw-ins wrong.

    It is coded into the game but is rare and often missed.

    Yes, I made a thread about it before.

    Gonzalo Higuain scored a goal that was at least 10 yards offside to knock me out of the CL.

    Yes the ref's ingame can & do make mistakes, sometimes frequently

    just as they do in real life


    If you use the media options to voice your concerns about ref decisions, you'll always know the ref messed up when the FA "remain silent"
