IIHF reffing is a joke MOD WARNING: Post 144

I really question if I am watching the highest level of junior hockey.

Across the board I am fed up with the frequency of calls, the soft calls, and the babying the refs are doing to players in this association.

Perfect example was yet another clean hit thrown by a Canadian player which resulted in an ejection.

The IIHF needs to stop babying professional athletes and start learning a thing or two from the North American game where we play like men and not babies in diapers.

Ref: That hit was totally clean

Camara: Yeah I thought so, sucks that the player is hurt

Ref: Now you're kicked out of the game

Camara: wtf?

I have never been behind this garbage.

Tyler Biggs: 2 minutes for body contact vs Germany
Anthony Camara: 2 minutes for body contact vs Germany

Anthony Camara: 5 minutes for body contact and a game misconduct because that player was an idiot and didn't protect himself

The trend of embellishment was started by Slovaks. Blame them and then the refs. The guy lays on the ice like he's dead and then scores on PP. The penalty was WELL DESERVED (won't argue that) but that's sickening.... but refs call it that way. Team Canada adapted.

Don't forget to add link to two Canadian dives. That was really good example of IIHF reffing being a joke.

Lipon's hit should be a two-minute minor. Camara's was squeaky clean.

The fact either one received a major is a joke.

Considering camara left the slovak with a bloody mouth and nose. I think it's pretty safe to say he made contact with his head. Should be 3 games minimum for the headshot. Should get 5 though.

I get sick of a lot of the borderline Canadian play and people crying about the IIHF, but it doesn't do anything for anybody to penalize a guy for playing within the rules.

Canadian players realize they are playing Russian ballet and not Canadian hockey so they are adapting like a poster above said.

Guess what?

Body contact is a part of the game WE EXPORTED TO YOU!

Another just wtf pointless call was that call on Ritchie (I think) for a weak poke at the goalie just as the whistle gets blown. Like just let em play!

Can we get some NA refs for Canada/USA game ?

I for one did not and I happen to be Canadian. Every year it's always the same thing, it's always talked about before international tournaments. They need to be prepared for a different style of officiating. It definitely is called different from CHL or any other NA league.

Bobby Mac thinks no suspension for either. Lipon served the whole game essentially and the player wasn't hurt. Camara's was clean anyways... Even if it's questionable, the Slovaks were well compensated. Injury to the player sucks but that hit was a clean hit.

His head was down because in the IIHF they don't learn to play with their head up because there's no fear of body contact.

What happened was his helmet visor cut his head.

No head contact.

AN OUTRAGE CALL!

I have no idea why there's so whining about the diving when this is actually what those refs are understanding. The IIHF refereeing makes the NFL replacement referees hall of famers....
