I really like Rinaldo. Total reputation call there.
That's what sucks, Rinaldo gets called because of making contact. If Rinaldo made contact there's a possibility he did something illegal, at least that's how the refs are making it seem. Annoying really.
Why did you choose the Flyers? It's pretty cool having fellow fans from the UK, Sweden, even Canada.
I chose Flyers thanks to going on a school exchange to Doylestown, PA. Went over during hockey season and Flyers were talked about frequently on tv, so they became my team. Then slowly but surely the Eagles & Phillies to.
On the game though, ok first period, seem to had forgotten how to close down their offense for the first 10 mins. Good to see G on the scoresheet, but am still nervous whenever I hear/see a hit.
I grew up as a fan of the local hockey side (Nottm Panthers) and whilst it was fun, it's a beer league. The first NHL game I watched was the Flyers vs....Washington I think and I was blown away by the atmosphere and style we played with. As time's gone by I've been less and less of a Panthers fan and more of a Flyer. Now, I barely cast a thought to them but spend one in three nights sat awake until 3am watching these lot.
but theres a difference between being good at ur job and having refs make ******** calls cuz they are idiots..
and that ref was a complete idiot on international TV..
That ref isn't the only one. They're obviously all aware.
On the flip side, when Rinaldo draws all these penalties (as in the other team taking the penalty), the referees know who it is. They're also all aware that he's pretty much on the ice solely to be a ****-disturber.
