    I know Juve beat us fair and square, but I do remember Vidal making a harsh tackle on Zuniga I believe and as soon as the ref realized Vidal was on his second yellow that game, he immediately turned to Barzagli and gave him the yellow. Just interesting, would've put Juve down 10 men before they scored twice (a sub for Vidal scored no less)

    Having said that, Napoli played like shit that entire game, so irregardless of that "coincidence" Juve could've easily won anyways.

    see problem is ref jobs have become so difficult...they get so much pressure from fans, media, and all these insecure teams complaining that during the game they have hard time making certain decisions. The referrring problem is everywhere its just that in italy they make it sooooo huge but majority of time, difference is not much, usually the better team comes out anyway. If not this week then next week. I was hoping with addition of ref behind goals it would fix things a bit but those guys seem like they're not even watching the game. This needs to be improved, i certainly dont like winning with bad calls or goals not counted.

    yeah Napoli got an iffy call against Sampdoria that gave us a penalty, I always want to see Napoli win fair and square, I think at the end of the day, all calls even themselves out over the course of the season, I'm sure Juve will get a couple of bad calls against them.

    we do get bad calls all the time, its just that we havent lost so we dont complain. even against catania as i mentioned there were 2 penalties not given...one more obvious than the other cuz it was a hand ball.

    Jesus weep, I feel sorry that the person behind this screen actually believes this $hit lol All those "bad calls" you get are ruled out with the 10x + calls you get your way ffs. Serie A is a joke because of this, just play on a level playing field and keep your titles, I would not care.

    Here are three nails, do us a favor and go climb back up your cross and stay there. I'm sure the view is far superior to us lowly cheats.

    Juventus is currently going for the all time draw record in the CL. Not so tough without the referee, eh?

    It should be bigger than finger pointing and to one or two clubs. It should. But unfortunately ego's and jealousy are the main culprits in the demise of the Serie A. I agree with this article (below), but will the big wigs, or baldy's (whatever floats your boat) going to come together to improve the league again?

    Until the Giuve virus is permanently eradicated from Serie A and Italian football there is no way in hell Serie A gets back to its former glory.

    Scandalous officiating conducts such as the one seen tonight or last week pollute Serie A's competitiveness even more than illegal betting or Spanish doping.

    I'm just showing that Juve is not the only side to receive big decisions in their favor.

    That was a clear penalty, doesn't matter where the fouling movement starts, it only matters where the foul is carried out. Milito was smart enough to get into the box and then fall. Penalty, no question.

    The foul is where it occurred. The correct call should have been a free kick just outside the penalty area.

    Exactly. Which means it's a penalty, as the foul occurred inside the box. The tugging was prolonged, only when the player cannot reach the ball anymore the foul is sanctioned. Milito first ran inside the box and then fell. That picture does not represent the exact moment of Milito's fall. Look at this one, taken a few frames after the one Oldlady posted:

    http://images2.corriereobjects.it/g...nter/P_08_672-458_resize.jpg?v=20121103223059

    Milito inside the box on his feet with Marchisio still tugging his jersey. Clear penalty, nothing to even debate about it (otherwise be assured that Mogg...err, Andrea Agnelli would have started whining immediately after the game was over).

    These are basic officiating rules. If you don't believe me go into the referee forum and ask users who post there.

    He pulled his shirt outside of the penalty area. That is the foul. It is not a penalty. The picture is as clear as day. It was a bad call. But that is not possible against Juve, is it?

    BTW, I am a referee as well.
