I see that all four officials for the 'brough match are from Yorkshire or Durham.
Bodes dodgy?

Hopefully they will want to prove they ain't, thus giving us the advantage

Does it matter? We're going to lose anyway.

Bodes dodgy? Possibly but then it's also like saying an official from Brighton is more likely to be pro-Palace.

Middlesbrough is 40 miles or so from Durham City and has never been part of County Durham, most people from Durham are likely to be Newcastle or Sunderland fans (or Darlo possibly too) Some parts of Yorkshire are 130 miles or so from Middlesbrough and there are countless other teams in Yorkshire many of which have a rivalry of sorts with Middlesbrough. Go outside of the Cleveland are and the chances of finding many Yorkshiremen who are Boro fans isn't particularly high.
