Home fans which are generally in the majority can try to influence decisions by there noises and I believe Barnes was referrring to that he would not be influenced into making decisions in favour of home team in those circumstances.

Naiyaravoro’s knock on springs to mind.

Actually I think home fans tend to react spontaneously to infringements by the away team. I don’t think this is an intentional attempt to do anything, though as you say it may have an influence.

But the point I was making was that if I recall correctly Barnes said he wanted “to give the away side a fair crack”. What he should have said, was he wanted to give both sides a fair crack.

It’s subtle but I don’t think you need a degree in psychology to appreciate why it might be relevant.

Iirc didn't he make some poor decisions in the Saints game? I'm sure there was an infringement leading up to there first try that wasn't checked.

I'd have to check but I'm pretty sure that was a 'huge' knock on from Naiyaravoro receiving a kick on or around their 22m, on the Crumbie side at Welford rd end, which Barnes from some distance away signalled as 'backwards' - the only thing backward was his reading of that particular play....it was a clear knock on, no review and Saints scored from the possession some phases later.

Could be wrong.

But then, they tend to balance out over a season (not the last one perhaps) and Barnes has given us benefit of the doubt more than once I'd say.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
