Refs and TMOs generally favour the home team. It's unconscious bias.
It reflects the subconscious human desire to want to avoid conflict because conflict carries risk.

In a 50/50 decision,do you risk upsetting 95% home supporters or 5% visiting supporters, when your sub-conscious is telling you to avoid risk?

You see what you're genetically programmed to see. Its not deliberate.

Once you accept that, the refs and TMOs decisions become more understandable,though perhaps no less frustrating.

Completely agree, and accept that point. Which is why I'm always frustrated that we never seem to get a hometown ref.
