No sportsmanship behind the whistle

Refereeing has become the joke of the NHL playoff season

The NHL Playoff refereeing this year is become the joke of the century. NHL Hockey is fast becoming a game of just how badly players can injure an opponent. Call that sportsmanship?

In the Canucks and Kings game on Sunday, the King’s captain Brown purposely slugged Hewndrik Sedin in the jaw aiming to eliminate him from play. The dreamy referees, floating in la-la land all evening, never did give Brown a penalty for unsportsmanlike action.

Hey, you refs, if you can’t do a better job refereeing a fair game then please stay home. No spectator enjoys watching any player get lambasted and seriously injured just to win the cup.
