Ok maybe my 50% was a bit over the top. However, the comment is "seem to indicate that" so they are not completely sure - along the lines of "for me thats a pen" and yet in 4 season I have never seen anything other than the ref was right and the manager (not just me but AI managers in my division) was wrong.
Off the top of my head this season in the Prem I can think of Kalo's goal versus Newcastle, Everton not getting a pen in the Mersyside Derby, Chelsea getting that pen versus Liverpool and Reading being given a pen against Liverpool where all the media was of the opinion that the wrong decision had been made.
I am worried that I am sounding like I am moaning too much here. I am not one of these people who say the game is unplayable etc - this is the only thing I have ever brought up.
Yes, a bit more feedback from the AM would be appreciated, but I assume these comments are the equivalent of the post-match interviews so you really shouldn't have that much time to analyse anyway.
I am sure IRL that (even without the replays in the top leagues) all the people on the bench (subs and coaches) would be giving their opinion on things such as pen decisions during the game so by the post game press conference the manager would have an idea if all his staff thought the team had been unlucky or opinion was split. Hence I would like all the people on the bench to respond - maybe 5 options from def was, often given, did not see, sometimes given (but prob not) & def not.
I just feel a bit stupid saying the ref got it wrong only to be told that everybody else thinks he got it right
. And that over 4 seasons there should have been at least one decision were the media was in argeement that the ref was wrong
