I'm serious. We have to make it public.
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
I hate to bitch about the refs, but that "goal" was definitely in.
Agreed. Now we know what Ed Hochuli does in his offseason.
...but do you think maybe the refs ALWAYS seem to screw our hockey team because we boo them so terribly and ridicule them before the game even starts? I mean, yeah, they should be impartial, but it canNOT be a coincidence that this happens so often to us. They seem to hate us no matter if it's at home, away, neutral site, on the fucking moon, anywhere.
Maybe we should cheer YAAAAY when they skate onto the ice? Tell them we love them? then maybe the quick whistles will be in our favor
I haven't seen a hockey team that gets screwed so much (other than the Red Wings, I guess). and I watch a LOT of hockey. It can't be coincidence.
we have the most national championships in the sport and other schools and referees truly have an axe to grind because of their jealousy. I still have the video of the screw job that occurred at Yost last year against Notre Dame and its just equally a BAD CALL.
And the ref not seeing it is never a good excuse. GET IN FUCKING POSITION THEN.
As long as you aren't threatening to go to their houses.....
That was all absolute bullshit. I've never been so pissed about a hockey game in my life than I am about that one. I never thought I would absolutely HATE Miami of fucking OHIO.
It's official - I hate every single thing about Ohio.
Should have been 2-0 at the end of regulation.
EDIT: As an athlete, I hate bitching about officiating, but when officiating directly affects points by a clearly blown call, there's no excuse.
Dumbass. Shit for Brains. and Cockboy
Referee- John Gravelese
Linesman- Chris Aughe
Goal Judge- Bob Bernard
I have some video clips of a recent hockey game you may be interested in...
Same HockeyEast official that did a terrible job in the Bemidji State game. What a joke.
That's what 41 years of combined experience gets you? There is a reason they have a day job...
right after this Mike Eaves interview.
Got robbed... But we certianly had our fair share of chances after that.. This was so much like our season... Outshoot a team by 20, but the goals weren't there.
fucking bull-shit of a game
That ref who blew the whistle and robbed us of our game-winning goal deserves to have his fucking balls cut off and shoved up his ass, so that every time he shits, he shits all over his balls.
For a minute there I thought you were going to ask for his address.
This works good in Christopher Walken's voice.
I'm no mod here, but this isn't going to end well.
This is awesome if read in an outrageously stereotypical Chinese or Italian accent. I tried both out and they work equally well, I think.
We got jobbed. Im not trying to say the reffing was sketchy but....
But it was.
my foot up their asses.
Not even really sure what to say. There was the normal amount of questionable penalties, but to disregard a goal like that is laughable.
I'm afraid the zebras follow the rules of announcing. You get the best in football, the next best in basketball, and then somewhere near the second to worst in hockey. Laughable.
College baseball umps are better than college football refs, though.
MGoBlog is just going insane right now.
Wake up the rulemakers that be and fix something that is broken...
I should offer a fix... But why can't that become a judgement call during the review?? If the whistle doesn't interfere with the way a defense or goalie plays... Ie the whistle blows while the puck is going in... Allow it.
This would make a lot of it. Therefore it probably won't happen...
were cheated tonight and if they don't change the rule and allow the overriding of the whistle in a situation like that then they all have their heads up their asses.
I couldn't care less about improving hockey rules. I want Michigan in the Frozen Four, where we fucking deserve to be.
Are hockey refs by conference or by NCAA? Which conference/organization do I submit a complaint to? I want to write a stern letter that no one will read.
Edit: Hockey East, my bad.
Dammit, now I have to start all over!
They better enjoy it. It's blood money at this point
We could've used you, this bus ride is going to be long
The Copa is in order.
they allowed John Gravallese to officiate another game at all after that hack job of a BSU game that we somehow won 5-1 despite more horseshit than I've seen on a redneck racetrack. Let alone that they let him officiate another Michigan game.
Ah. Nice analogy.
It's a huge, huge blown call...will be interesting to see how much we hear about it. That's as big a mistake as I have ever seen by an official. Way too quick on that whistle.
That was horrible officiating. How could you blow that whistle when the goalie is clearly attempting to stop the puck?
You just have to be frigging TERRIBLE at your job.
You didn't even have to see the puck to know it was loose. I would think the goalie flopping around like his penis is running away into the net would be a good enough indicator of a loose puck.
I guarantee that his response, if he gives one, is that he blew the whistle because he deemed that Knapp had control sufficient to blow the play dead because of the penalty. He'll be wrong, but that'll be his excuse.
What I can't understand is, they had five minutes in the review booth to fix their mistake and they couldn't sack up.
We've had several goals similar to that taken away from us this season. Is that normal? I mean for anyone that watches games not involving Michigan, is that the norm for play to stop when the puck is loose?
Angry Michigan Hating God is Angry "State of Michigan" Hating God. The Wings have suffered his wrath as well.
