It's impossible for me to read this thread without immediately thinking of Bill McCreary. He's retired now, but I swear that guy was out to get the Flyers every time he officiated a game.

Regardless of what happens, I'm glad some attention was brought to the whole ordeal. I'm just sad it had to be Burrows who called it out; it's a shame it's not a more reputable player.
McCreary is still around (done a couple Flyer games this year), is retiring at the end of the year, and will be an official at the Olympics:

And I don't think McCreary was out to get the Flyers...he's just a ****. If you watch him officiate other games, he's pretty consistent in that regard.
