Last game was a consolation game and each side only had a couple extra skaters so we all knew it was pretty meaningless going in. It was tied 4-4 halfway through the third when the other team iced the puck. Basically everyone stopped skating except for one guy because it was clearly icing.
When the refs didn't call it our goalie tried to get it cause nobody was back and he turned it over and that guy who was still skating?...ended up getting an open net goal.
From a ref standpoint is it really such a big deal to skate from the blue line to the end boards, bend over to pick up the puck and throw it down to your partner? Oh I forgot about blowing the whistle in there too. Clock runs anyway so the only thing that blowing the whistle does is lets us get a break which we ALL wanted anyway cause both sides were skating with 7 guys.
It was just lame. I wasn't mad because of the meaningless game even by beer league standards but come on. I guess I just don't get the mentality.
