Btw, one thing that gets left behind is that the LINESMEN do a fantastic job. They RARELY make a mistake.
Mike Cvik is one of the best officials around.
Thats because if its offside, its called.
Not like the refs, "oh he was hooked but it wasnt a scoring chance and they are 3-0 up already and I dont want the game to get out of hand so Ill let it go" decsions. 30 seconds later the other team does the same thing and its called a penalty.
That is why they are so inconsistant and why everyone complains about them.
