Its funny how Football is called the same from a friendly game to the world cup final, the same goes for rugby, cricket, field hockey and every other sport on the planet. Do you see F1 drivers not penalised because it will not affect the outcome of the race? Do you see a footballer not get sent off because his team are already losing 3-0? Do you see a rugby team not get a penalty kick because the are 34-3 up?

You know why there arent a stupid amount of stoppages in those game? Because the players know if they break the rules, they will be penalised. Thats not true in the NHL because the players dont know if they will be called as it depends on the officials mood, score, previous penalties and personal bias.
Can you guys stop qouting this guy's posts.
