I'm disputing your statement that a 90 second 5-3 is equivalent to 5 minutes of 5-4. Surely it's not too much to ask you to bring something to that comparison. Otherwise you're, you know, pulling numbers out of your *** in an attempt to make a point. (Please note, using "infinitely" really doesn't bring anything to the table in the way of supporting your claim.)

Please clarify this. Or you could poijt me to the 16 games about which you're writing and I'll do the research myself.

You'll need to please quote where I made my statement absolute by using "never." Officiating does sometimes decide games; last night was not one of them ... unless a fan CHOOSES to make it the decisive element.

Thanks for the breakdown, but given that I've already written that the officiating was poor, what's your point?
