That being said, I actually got angry the other day. Was filling in for a team, we only had five and a goalie. And to truly convey how bad the goalie is all I can really say is that he went out and bought a pro level pair of pads, that he tapes on.
So a goal before the mercy rule the other team calls a timeout. There was no chippiness, I will admit that these guys weren't very good so their eyes lit up against this goalie, shooting from places they wouldn't have normally. To me, this is the most ******* thing you can do. So I said something about it. After play started some dude takes a slapshot at me. So I block it, he gets the puck back, does it again. This is, obviously, when keeping it real went wrong for him. I returned the favor. Game got called, his ankle is probably done.
Dick move by me? Definitely. But I guess I can justify it by not throwing the first stone.
If someone took two blatant slapshots at me in a game a goal away from the mercy rule, the last thing I would worry about is his well-being after I fired one back and I certainly wouldn't feel like a dick. I'd say well done, all things considered.
