Referees who throw matches make strategic decisions to award decisions against the team they want to win. So they send off a player in the last few minutes when the impact will be small or give free-kicks in less advantageous positions for the opposition than the decisions they give their favoured team just so the stats look fair.
Some people might think Jeremy Hunt does this when he uses the defence that he made 4 decisions that made James Murdoch 'furious' when it was quite plain that but for the Milly Dowler affair and resulting furore the BSkyB bid was going to be waved through. Also notice how Rupert 'forgets' meeting PMs and other politicians but remembers other minute details. Does anybody really believe these guys are telling the truth? I wonder.
