I got thrown out of a round robin playoff game for not fighting once.

It was 3-2 for us in the third period. Two guys started scrumming behind the opposition net during the game... you know, b/c some guys take house league way too seriously. I'm friends w/ the goalie, so I just started talking to him in the crease while they were going at it. They wound up moving around a little bit, slewfooted me from behind by accident, and landed on my arm while they wrestled on the ground before the fight was broken up. I was caught by surprise but just started laughing. I couldn't move so I just kinda laid there and did nothing (my girlfriend's pro at that!)

When the refs made the call, they threw all three of us out of the game. I thought the ref was joking at first, but he grabbed me by the shirt and skated me off the ice. I tried explaining to him that I wasn't even fighting, but he wouldn't listen to any of it. The opposing team wound up tying the game, thus keeping us in 3rd place instead of bumping us to 2nd.
