"The guys say the supervisor will tell them one thing in the dressing room after the game then file something else with the league and the guys don’t have access to that,” he said. “The guys feel like they’re walking on egg shells all the time.”Sorry, that was uncalled for. But how often do you get to see such a pure example of sweet irony? I don't know if minor league refs are any better than NHL officials, but I would welcome any change that includes these clowns being removed from the ice. Please NHLOA, go on strike for a long, long time. And if it wouldn't be too much trouble, take Bettman, Daly, Campbell, Gregson, and the entire NHL head office with you. Load them all up in the clown car, take a last lap around the center ring, and then leave the tent to the delight of all in attendance. This circus needs to leave town.
I leave you with 2 of my favorite referee faux pas in recent history:
1. A WTF! moment that cost Brad May what would have been the only goal he would have scored that season
2. And the perfect example of refs making things up as they go along when things don't go the way the NHL scripted
The call on the ice, isn't the call on the ice?1?!?! How do they get away with this stuff in broad daylight?
