The problem is, when they show its only for the money by trying to move the game along and speed things up by not calling icings, etc, just so they can collect their check and get home as early as possible.
I even had a ref flat out say before a game he had "two games tonight and so anything I can let go to keep the games moving I'm going to do."
BS - call it as it should or stay home on the couch.
As far as I know there isn't a beer league in Canada that pays $100 a game. Where is this?
And all refs are not this bad, too bad these are the ones that get remembered.
