Controversial Calls in Sporting Events

Post by steveogolf » Wed Jun 27, 2018 5:47 pm

Generally-speaking, do you think that per game/match there are more controversial/questionable calls and/or flatly incorrect officiating calls on the World Cup pitch OR in an NBA playoff game?
I say that the World Cup tops the list.

I think the stakes are higher on each call in the soccer

Almist every penalty kick could decide a match, whereas most free throws just seem like a drop in the bucket.

agree. Stakes are way higher. BECAUSE way less points per game.

^I assume the main reason for flouncing...erhm falling whatever..to get penalties, as I think there´s a what 84% or so success rate for goals, re flouncing by a ref.
