Home ground advantage is a myth. If a team doesnt win on the day its just because they are shit and the other team brings far more pressure.
Very, very short sighted and totally ignorant.
The reason home grounds, in all sports across the globe since sport was ever first played, provide such an advantage - is because when a team is at home they tend to bring far more pressure.
And when a team is away, they tend to bring less pressure.
Could be the vocal crowd, could be a comfort zone thing, could be the travel, could be any number of things. But it's a fact that since day dot, in all sports all over the world - the 'home team' has an advantage. Even in the Olympics the home team performs out of their skin.
So it's not a myth at all. It's a fact.
