    I've watched most of the Toronto FC games on CBC.

    Can someone enlighten me? Why are the MLS refs so biassed against Toronto FC?

    A TFC player remotely touches an opposition player and their booked or yellow carded.

    The opposing time can give a TFC player a hard time and they get off scott free!

    MLS refs suck ass. Not really for prime time, IMO.

    That's often a case with new/expansion teams. :mad:

    On the other hand, we are nice people here in Toronto and refs don't have a fear of being hit with a bear bottle after the game :)

    The most refs can fear in TO is being hurled a load of verbal abuse!

    The answer is most likely that the majority of referees are rubbish... ;)

    As someone who regularly attends football matches, I've seen some shocking, some disappointing and some downright bizarre decisions over the years – and they always seem to be against us. But these decisions tend to balance themselves out over the course of a season – for every dodgy booking or penalty we suffer, I've seen a suspect free kick or offside awarded in our favour.

    However, no matter how charitable you are towards the match officials there can be no excusing Uriah Rennie.
