I'm the GM of an "old" guild - 2 years or so now - and we use a weird /roll loot council hybrid system. At some point my normally no loot drama guild got concerned about loot. There were some good reasons for their concern - so I started keeping a list on the guild forums of who got what in each raid. It'd have the raid day, the raid, the people who got loot, whether they'd tried to pass it to other people, whether we'd forced them to take it. I used some addon I can't remember to track it.At the bottom of the list I kept tallies -- Sam = 4; George = 3. I also kept tallies of non-main spec loot on another list.It became obvious after a few weeks - the loot balances out. The hybrids (and our rarer classes like shammies) get more off-spec just out of random chance. People who were in all raids got more loot just because they are there.I did this for a few months and all concerns stopped. People who complained I sent to the list. The list showed that it balanced.if your list doesn't show it balanced then maybe they're right. But I'm guessing it will show balance. Maybe it's because I'm an academic, but logitudinal evidence wins the day!
