It actually doesn't. Let's say you've had five decisions go for you in a season and seven go against you. That could be the difference that gets you relegated.
If your team is in a precarious enough position that two iffy calls get you relegated perhaps there's bigger problems with the team itself.
my team was in a cup semi final. leading 1-0, player handles goal bound chance, referee doesn't give it. We don't get the chance to go 2 up early in the second half with the opposition down to 10 men.
We get our keeper sent off correctly, penalty given and the games 1-1. 10 men vs 11 men. We lose 3-2 in extra time. And lose out on the chance of a domestic treble.
tv showed we were denied a penalty and a sending off.
bring it on.
