Dundee United are currently enjoying their best ever season in terms of dodgy refereeing decisions in their favour - why ???

 

I have 2 theories as to why this should be

.

Theory 1 - The Weegie effect - The dug out is almost 100% Weegie,The team is basically a Weegie/Irish select,The chairman Mr Thomson is a Weegie and the celebrity fan Mrs Smith is a Weegie.

Outcome - the poor Refs on hearing every decision contested by a clamour of Weegie/Irish tongues automatically fall into "Old Firm" mode and award the decision to United

.

Theory 2 -The McLean brothers effect (No not Jim and Tam) - sign a centre half whos no very good BUT his brother is a grade one ref in the SPL and the dodgy decisions will flow in your favour?

 

Am I just a paranoid Dee fan or has anyone else noticed their team on the wrong end of Old Firm type decisions against United recently and wondered why this should be ?

No, I'd say you're more of a troll than a Dee fan.

I reckon you missed an angle.  I reckon Dundee Hibs have benefitted from bigoted pro-Catholic refereeing.

I for one am absolutely devastated that we have been found out.  Despite all the supposedly intelligent and educated people on P&B it takes a complete first time poster to uncover and publicise the unfair practices that we have been a party to this season.

 

I only hope that the cat is only partially out of the bag and that deeman61 is, like a well known ex-cardinal, subject to human frailties and can be bought off.  If so deeman61, please forward me your bank details and I will deposit a large amount in your account.  I will also require your PIN number and any online security codes.

If it wasn't for referees United would be much closer to us at the bottom. Is that why they are called the Lucky White Heather club ?

Johnny Adair loves the boaby. The UDA actually began as a two-piece Europop act in the mid '80s, referred to in some quarters as Northern Ireland's answer to Erasure. Adair went rougue though after their second album, 'No Surrender To The Double-Ender', flopped, re-emerging years later as a notorious Loyalist paramilitary leader

Dafuq is this utter nonsense! Fair play we have had more than our usual amount of penalties this season (have we not had more pens this year than the previous 3 seasons combined?) but I seriously doubt its any sort of bias.

Oh yeah I was totally raging when I wrote this post OP infact I'm chewing a seat. because of the total seethe I'm in!

a hunch he is a troll and given his emphasis on Irish I hazard a guess he follows another non-Dundonian team.

Scottish referees are shit. You tend to notice the decisions that go against you more than the mistakes in your favour.

 

I hope this answers your question/troll.

It`s a plan clearly hatched in the Arab heartland of East of Dobbies Afghanistan. Al Qaeda are funding it. It`s the pre-cursor to an invasion. Soon you`ll all be tee-total camel jockeys. I predict a suicide bomber at the next derby.  :egypt   :osama:  :saddam  :guntoting

I don't think Scottish referees are that bad in comparison to other countries.

Yeah we've certainly had big calls go against us this season but that's seems to be the norm for struggling teams.

It's up to the players on the pitch to puts things right and make things happen.

Bottom line is both goals should have been defended better and Big Rab should have done better.

Even though we lost, I thought Brines had a good game on Sunday, it was'nt his fault the linesman was biased and he was quite right to book 'little lord Fauntleroy' for his childish goal celebration.
