    A study in Germany found that referees may be biased towards the color red.

    Referees award more points when the see red
    Unfortunately, they don't think it will be as big of a bias for team sports...

    This study missed a few games, methinks. :no::no::no:


    Upon further freezing review, we have decided that this play is not reviewable.:sad:

    Great, so when does this bias kick in. It sure hasn't helped yet.
