I have mixed feelings on the issue as well, especially if Justin Wolfers and Joseph Price's study does not accurately link a specific call to a specific official. And knowing the way that athletes in professional sports never hesitate to whine about officiating, I am sure we would have heard a lot more about this bias a long time ago if it truly is a problem "large enough that the probability of a team winning is noticeably affected."
