Amerr30 1 year ago Edited Real Madrid, Bosnia-Herzegovina 54 586 I cannot believe this. Football news sites like bleacher report, goal, and etc are littered with reports of the Real Madrid - Bayern Munich 'controversy'. Not one of the sites are mentioning the penalty Bayern got in the first leg, not one of them are mentioning the fact that Vidal should have been sent off in the 48th minute on his terribly malicious tackle just on the side of their box. Not one site is mentioning how the second Bayern goal should have also been ruled offside. Every single site is mentioning how it was a 'soft yellow card' on Vidal, how it Ronaldo's goal was offside - completely ignoring the runs and how difficult it was to see it in real time. I don't understand, why? I remember the news following day after Barcelona - PSG second leg. It was, "Heroic Barcelona", It was "Historic Night", it was all pro Barca - barely any report mentioning the unbelievable amount of pro-Barca calls the ref made. How can the media be so biased? I understand the news coming from Catalan owned sites, I even understand the ones coming from Germany. They all need someone to blame. But why the so called neutral sites are reporting such anti-madrid views? I've talked to so many neutral fans, and all of them are of the opinion that ref made bad calls but that his bad calls hurt both teams. There was no favoring, not really. I'm glad many people are able to see things for themselves, at least the ones I've talked to. But I know that many just follow the reports and make up their opinion and mind based on that. It just sucks. It has just taken away from Real's victory, reports saying that it was the ref who knocked Bayern out - not Real. If anything though, this has made me an even bigger supporter of Real however. I simply hate injustice. This is an injustice. Although, it does shed light on the whole 'humble Messi' and 'arrogant Ronaldo' media view. Showing previous versions of this text.
