Guys, if any of you have the chance to watch the Av broadcast, it is HILARIOUS. Listening to these guys you'd think Downie was selling Girl Scout Cookies for dying children and Weber and Bourque beat the **** of him and killed a puppy for good measure as Downie tried to save it.
I've been watching a lot of Av games, all preseason and stuff just cause I like the outlook of their team...But man. It is the biggest brainwashed, and brainwashing, of any crew I've ever seen in my life. I don't think I can ever take any Av fan seriously since they watch games with these guys commentating.
I've heard them in action, most Altitude broadcasts I've seen are that disgraceful. The Rapids' guy was brutal, but they replaced him with Richard Fleming.
I haven't agreed with most of the penalties doled out tonight. The Downie trip, the Klein slash, and the Fisher interference all seem really flimsy. It seems like they're looking for any excuse to give teams power plays.
The OMG, that was a bad call leads to the "we were screwed by the refs" rants later. Good teams don't let the inevitable bad calls cost them games. The call on Fisher is laughable but it happened. Time to play through it then score a couple more goals ... unlike how the team reacted to the blown offsides call in this same building last season.
So much going on this game! The refs have been brutal. Great to see Gaustad score. Again, ice time is confusing me?
Has Nystrom REALLY had the most ice time of all the forwards? If so, there might be the problem.
