The "Don't Blame the Refs" Campaign

I'm sick of hearing fans blame the refs after every damn close game in the playoffs so far. It's getting really annoying. Here's a newsflash, every team gets questionable calls for and against them. If your team does not capitalize on those chances, but the other team does, DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT IT! I'm TIRED OF IT!

We as Habs fans can make a difference, yessir! I propose that IF the Habs lose a game (a BIG IF), we refrain from blaming the refs. Let's lose with class, give props to the other team for capitalizing on their chances and move on to the next game.

GO HABS GO!

But what about if we actually lose because of the refs? Shall we still say nothing?

I WANNA START I WANNA START

If Bulis was not there 2 years ago, gas price would have stayed under 1$ in Canada IMO

I'm sure the few idiotic Flyer's fans will gather together and try to create a comprehensible letter to send to the NHL to complain about the reffing in game 1.

Basically, the letter will just be a bunch of stick people with flyer jerseys and they all have eyebrows like " \ /" Except, more on an angle.

The smart flyer fans will shake their heads and try to pass them off as Phantom fans.

Seriously, they're more annoying than Boston fans.

Stupid Bulis, it's so nice out and I got to work this weekend.

MotherBulis, get away from my car.

Shut the Bulis up.

I like it.

We almost did lose the game due to a BS call (Komi Interference, near end of 2nd). Sure as hell wasn't a knee-on-knee or anything, so I'm not sure why there's any complaining...

So yeah, I agree, everyone sees bad calls against their own team, just go with the flow. If it kills you, like it did the Caps when Huet got totally wiped out, c'est la vie, I guess.

Its ok to be frustrated with a questionable call from the refs but to not get over it like ive seen it with Boston's and Philly's Fans is annoying. Thats what i like about this board, as crazy and ultra-passionate fans as we are we always complain about our players first and foremost, sometimes too much. Im all for the "blame yourself first before blaming others".

So we can't whine even if the refs call penalties that are total Bulis?

I was quite surprised after last night. Didn't think Flyer fans would be so Bulis. They seemed nice enough before the series started, then it was all Bulis coming from them. Bunch of Bulisses.

The easiest target is the refs.

Noone likes to blame their own team except The Damned because his team consists of only 1 player

A hockey team never loses a game because of the refs. That's a copout, every single time. And I've got the perfect example that should drive the point indisputably home:

2002 Olympics. Women's gold medal game.

Canada got whistled for penalty after penalty after penalty in that game, most of them garbage calls. The Americans hardly got called for a thing. Canada spent over half the second period on the penalty kill. And Canada killed every one of them off (or all but one, I forget now), en route to winning the game. It was the most one-sided refereeing I've ever seen in a game of that importance. And the team who was on the crap end of it, still won the game.

Because only losers blame bad calls. Winners overcome them.
