with replacement refrees doing a fairly poor job in the NFL, I think it gives more credibility to the thesis that a good bunch of home-ice advantage relies on refrees. This year in the NFL, there's about as many penalties given per game compared to the same point in the schedule last year. However, more calls are given against the road team leading to most point spreads being covered by the home team so far this year. Still not a huge number of games played but still.

This idea was exposed in that book. Haven't read it though.
