is this worth a penalty?
 
ok, yesterday at my game i got hit by a cheap shot. and i said a bad word. it happend to be the f-bomb. the ref gave me a 2 minuete game misconduct.(if forgot what he called it). my question to you is, is that worth 2 minuetes in the box? i myself dont think it is. and i know this sounds crybabyish, but the other team was dropin f-bombs left and right.

refs discretion

what did you say exactly? Because theres a big difference between saying **** just as an exclamation and using it as an insult like "**** you". Especially if you insulted the ref.

i find it hard to believe he'd give you a penalty for just saying something like "pass the puck ****" or wtv lol. I get the impression your F-word was directed towards him which is why he might have given you a penalty?

If it was directed towards an official or player it can be given as an unsportsmanlike conduct. But just saying the f-word during the game as dissapointment towards something or a yelp from pain, is usually not called for anything... depending on the league ofcourse.

You should have slashed the guy on his calf.

Maybe the ref thought you directed it at him? If you said F--- because of the pain or whatever then that wouldnt be a penatly really. If your started cursing out the guy then yes he could give you a penalty.

sounds like a bad deal...personally i dont think that should be a penalty,,just because i cuss all the time haha

In an adult league, I'm pretty confident a ref can't penalize you for saying to yourself "Oh f$@*". But if you direct it at someone else, yeah, that's something they can definitely do.

I've seen a guy get kicked out of the game for swearing at a referee, but never for just swearing in general or even at another player.

Some guy called me the N-word right in front of a referee one year (in MINOR HOCKEY no less) and he didn't get anything for it... but that probably has to do with the fact that I'm not actually black :laugh:

I've given a 2min for a guy saying **** again and again and again, not at anyone in particular, he was just disrupting stuff. I've gotten alot of miscounducts for chirping as well, always directed at other players, i never chirp at the refs anymore since i got my stripes :P

My criteria for Unsportsmanlike Conduct for swearing...

- Directed at me or another on-ice or off-ice official, especially when you're showing disrespect for a call or non-call.

- Directed at a member of the opposing team in a threatening/intimidating manner.

- Loud enough for people in the stands to hear it.

- How old the players are. IE: Obviously adult hockey is going to be dealt with much differently than lower age groups of minor hockey.

Worth a penalty? Yeah. It says in the rulebook you can get called for it, so why shouldn't you get called for it? That's the way it works, bud.

I say it depends on the league. I've been in a league where everybody knows everybody and nothing is held back, f bombs included.

However, I've also been in a league in the same area that tossed a guy for saying "you gotta be f-ing kidding me" after he missed a wide open net. Not directed at anybody but himself.

**** no that ****ing reff is a steaming pile of ****
did you kick the **** out of the reff in the parking lot?

LOL I just used the asterisk instead of writing the swear words

I think you erked the reff before he called you for your potty mouth.

pcgflyers12* 03-02-2009 08:27 PM

i said what the ****. and it was out of pain and i was mad at the cheapshot.
