we had an incident over a month ago where a goon on the opposing team threw a flying elbow at our captain. not only did the ref miss the call, he didnt give both players matching minors to help them cool off after they were trying to fight each other. the very next shift, my captain boarded the guy who elbowed him and was suspended for 30 days. it all could have been easily avoided if a) the ref made the right call off the bat b) realized he missed the call, and given both players matching minors to diffuse the situation
It could have all been avoided if A. The player that gave the flying elbow, realized what exactly they were playing for.
And B. If your captain, acted like an adult and didn't deliberately board another player.
Regardless if the ref missed the call, refused to make the call didn't see the call. Your captain finished the shift, sat on the bench for another shift, THEN took the penalty, how in the hell is that the officials fault that your captain decided then to board an opponent?
