I'm sure this will come to a surprise to some of the resident gooners on XT.
The Right Result concept was devised by people who’d had enough of seeing bad decisions affect the outcome of football matches week in week out. Like many other fans we don’t buy into the old “luck evens itself out over the course of a season” line that gets offered up so often as if it makes everything ok, because luck doesn’t do this and it isn’t ok! We wanted to see just how different the league table would look if refs called it right more often.
Each week on this website the Right Result panel selects the key injustices that happen each week during the Premiership season, applies the strict rules of the game to them and passes an impartial judgement on whether or not questionable decisions should stand. The panel is a neutral and independent body, comprised of members from the Association of Football Statisticians (www.11v11.com).
Typical examples of incidents include penalties that don’t get given when they should have been. Or those that do get allowed in dubious circumstances. Whether balls did or didn’t cross the goal line. Goals disallowed for questionable offside.
These incidents happen so frequently that there’s virtually never a weekend passes without at least one controversial call that not only affects the scoreline of a game, but actually changes the outcome.
