Hey Im not accusing refs of being biased. Im not accusing them of any conspiracy.

So what you are saying is the officiating has always been terrible but now with replay, not exactly a brand new invention, we can see more blown calls. Would you like everyone to ignore it and say oh well, or use that additional knowledge to improve officiating?

Ill tell you what, Ill give you an example that has nothing to do with replay. Ive never watched a game that didnt feature at least half a dozen non calls on the puck carrier. Saw them live not on replay. Are you telling me with two refs not one of them is watching the play around the puck?

The NHL has said they wanted to crack down on obstruction away from the play. They didnt want to limit physical play on the puck carrier. As a result penalties go uncalled. Its terrible and stupid and its the leagues fault.
