Your opinion of the Refs + Poll

A common topic that has been coming up a lot here lately is the officiating in the series.  In 5 games so far the referees have called 107 fouls against Houston and 113 against Portland.  Only a -6 foul differential!  We've seen comments and posts for the first 4 games about how biased the officiating has been.  Some have speculated that there is a conspiracy by Stern to draw in more Chinese fans by advancing Houston to the next round.  Looking at the margin of fouls called makes me wonder, are we just homers that are blinded by love of our hometown team?  If the officiating was really that poor in the first 4 games, you would expect there to be a larger margin of fouls called. 

While strolling over to The Dream Shake, they are complaining about the same thing many BEdgers are...poor officating.  So we are complaining about poor officiating, they are complaining about poor officiating.  So is one team being favored here?  Or is the officating equally poor for both teams?
