We are not saying Barca didn't get affected by refs mistakes (positively and negatively) like every other team. Mistakes happen.and yet I have given you countless examples of the refs giving some of the worst calls against Barca of the entire season. Just give up with your bias. For a team “paying off the refs” no way do all those blatantly terribly calls happen.
We are not saying Barca payed off the refs (there is no proof).
We are saying Barca payed 7.3M€ to the ref VP (there is proof). Also during that time Barca is related to some refereering anomalies, like not getting a pen against them in La Liga for more than to years, which is ludicrous.
And that should be taking into account when comparing Xavi and Iniesta's domestic success vs Modric's
Edit: Barca had exactly 746 days without a pen against them in La Liga. From February 14th 2016 to March 1st 2018.
