Good day all fellow habs fans! Just wondering if any of you out there are seeing the same things that I am when it relates to calls being made and not made as well as calls against certian players and not on the rest as well as calls going against one team and not on the other.
Personally I feel there is an EXTREME LACK of consistancy when it relates to todays NHL CLOWNS, whoops, I mean dignafied officials.
Lately it seems that the calls are fluctuating between whats being called in the first, isn't being called in the second and then it seems it'l' only be called in the third of the ref's feel like.
Now don't get me wrong. I am all for the "Zebras" enforcing the rules as they have been put in place to make the game faster and more exciting, but how can the game be faster and more exciting if all there is, is a steady stream to the penalty box.
This doesn't just apply to Mick McGeouh's major brain **** on friday night, that ended up costing Craig MacTavish 10 large, but look at what happened Saturday night in the Habs - Devils game. Let me set the scene....
2nd Period. A Devils player gets pushed into the habs net by a habs defenceman, that's fine, however, the rule states that a player, if pushed into the goalies crease, must make an attempt to get out of it. NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE. THE ONLY EFFORT THE PLAYER IN THE CREASE ( BEHIND HUET ) WAS TO BLOCK HIS FACE FROM BEING HIT BY THE GAME WINNING GOAL. Allow me to also say that Dave " I hate Montreal " Jackson was standing right there and there was no call, But earlier in ther period Downey got called for interfering with Brodeur when in reality Brodeur was out of his crease and exagerated the little contact to an Academy award winning degree.
Why is it everyone in the arean, at any given time is held accountable for their actions, whether it be the coach, equipment manager, that guy who sells 12$ coke's and 20$ ice cream, hell even Youppi are held accountable for the actions but for some unknown top secret reasons ref's get off scott free or in the case of Mick " spastic " McGeough a simple comment to the media " Yeah I blew the call".
This has got to stop and the refs really need to be put under a microscope and held accountable for their actions. Now I am not just saying this because I love the habs, I love the game and it's getting harder and harder to enjoy as these clowns with orange bands on their arms are getting away with "murder". Whats it going to take before something changes???? Maybe, god forbid but maybe a marquee player needs to be fatally injured or something before the league opens it's eyes and not just the revenue books.
GO HABS GO!!!!
