I'm serious. We have to make it public.
I want the names of the refs of tonight's hockey game.
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.
4 Stanley Cups since '96 beg to differ.
is a bipolar State of Michigan Hating God. I see at least a longer playoff tenure and possibly another cup without ASMHG.
Michigan hockey has made the tournament 20 years straight. Doesn't mean ASMHG doesn't exist.
1. We won. FUCK THAT BULL SHIT CALL THAT GAVE MIAMI THE WIN. But of course like they have done in the past 7 games during our regular season they fuck us out of a win.
2. BULL SHIT OFFICIATING. Almost every fucking call went against in every fucking hit and trip that was clearly on their own weight.
3. We dominated in shots on goal but I as a hockey player know that the odds always favor the other side when the hotter side can't capitalize on great scoring opportunities. My proof of this: GAME 5 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs Wings vs Pens. Before the 3rd OT Detroit had so many chances and shots to end it but of all that work the fatigue set in and a tricky shot by Sykora wins the Pens the game.
We did get cheated and I am extremely pissed off but I will not lash out against Miami for this loss. Both teams played to win it, we got fucked and they got the lucky shot. Hunwick stood on his head in the third and we had a power play to put the game away! I will be absolutely sickened as a hockey fan to see all of you root for Boston fucking College. You want BC to win another national championship so those Ivy league fuckers can brag about it and put on another fucking Mini series about it on NHL Network or ESPN?! FUCK THEM AND FUCK THAT. I sick of B fucking C. I hope the Redhawks tear them a new asshole. Neg bang away if you want but I will not root for Boston College ever, in hockey. But we got fucked and that is the aspect of this whole thing.
I want Boston College to rip Miami a new one and then lose a nail-bitter to RIT.
And can anything they do on BC really be as bad as what will happen if Miami wins? We will never hear the end of their "tough game" against Michigan and how they "persevered" and "fought through" for their fallen team manager.
No. I want people to remember that they were handed that game on a solver platter, and I want it to happen because Boston College made them look like a high school team. I can't stand their team because they got away with enough crap tonight than we normally tolerate the refs not calling in a whole month, AND THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT AT OUR EXPENSE.
The only person with anything to do with them that I don't mind is Blasi. He's literally the only guy I have no bone to pick with. He's a great coach, a good sport (Can't say I've seen a coach interact with those of us behind the bench at Yost), and he's not personally responsible for his players committing a penalty or getting away with it. Everyone else wearing black, white, or red can go jump off a cliff.
Somebody that is representing the last team left in our conference lose to an snobby Ivy leauge school? Even though BC won their last national title back in 2008? Even though they have 22 trips to the Frozen Four? And also making the tournament 29 times? They have their fucking Beanpot game when they tell the world we beat Boston so I guess that makes us the best odd to win the whole tournament. No, Fuck Boston College and that city. I rather watch either RIT or Miami win. Be nice to see the CCHA shut those Ivy fuckers up.
They're already in the Frozen Four, so we can't do anything about their appearances going up. What's so bad them serving up a dish of karma to Miami and then losing it to RIT?
Plus, I don't think comparing them to an Ivy League is appropriate, because if they had lost today, Miami literally would be playing an Ivy League.
(Second part meant as a joke) ^
BC isn't Ivy League. They are catholic, but certainly not Ivy.
Sorry about being a dick, by why do you keep referring to BC as an Ivy league school? It's not even remotely close to (as in several tiers below) an Ivy league school academically, and as far as I know it doesnt play in any league that is only for the 8 Ivy League schools (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia, and UPenn).
To be a fly on the wall in Red's brain right now...
If I screw up my job, chances are I get fired, if not reprimanded. If they screw up their job, everything's right with the world. There is an angry Michigan hating god.
They don't even get official criticism. It would shock me if there was any sort of official statement about it. Yet if I was a policeman and I ran a red light and got in an accident, you can be damn sure the city would have some explaining to do.
I mean if coaches and 18, 19 year old kids have to talk with reporters... How do refs get off Scott free??? Put them in front of the public like everyone else involved.
I can attest that Oklahoma is full of shit. That shit is of the shittiest quality.
Nice Facebook group... not:
How do you blow the whistle instantly when a puck slides under the Miami keeper... but in the 2nd period when Hunwick is laying his whole pad completely over a puck, and is stationary, and you're 6 FEET AWAY with a clear view, you say "not yet... let's see where they're going with this"???
I completely agree. Both plays appeared to be the exact same but Miami got the benefit on both calls. The non-goal for Michigan was brutal enough but to think Miami's goal counted under the same circumstances is what's really infuriating
Quote from Gravallese:
“You are only as good as your last game,” says veteran referee John Gravallese, who is in his 20th year on the job in Hockey East. “Now with video tape and constant evaluations, you are always held accountable.”
Except he's not actually held accountable, because if he were, he wouldn't have been allowed to call this game after what he did on Saturday night. This is the best that HockeyEast has to offer?
Just fyi. You just need to know how to figure out which one he is. I'm not going to give you guys the number, but it's definitely findable via google if you know how to look.
Not responsible. Seriously, it only takes one asshole and you have no right to call another fan base classless anymore. No right, it sucks, it happened, bitch and let it go. If he's wrong, the NCAA will slap him in the nuts.
I'm not doing anything (aside from punching a wall). The main thing that pisses me off is that there is a 99% chance that the NCAA WON'T do anything to punish him for being wrong. There is almost no accountability for refs and it's total bullshit. And there is basically nothing that we, as fans, can do.
You're still giving people the idea. Again, all it takes is one asshole to decide it's a good idea to start looking and you've got another six months of negative press for the school. That post should have been taken down, both here and on the game open thread.
These people don't exist for your amusement. He fucked up, and I'm pissed too, but he knows it and probably feels like shit now. He'll get reviewed and reprimanded--which is what he deserves. He doesn't deserve people harassing him and his family.
Yeah, I know. I had actually come back to edit my post to be something different, but unfortunately you can't do that here when someone has replied to your post.
And if he had felt like shit, he would have made some calls afterwards basically as make-up calls. Or at least called the few penalties against Miami that definitely happened and weren't called. Chances are he was like "Whoops LOL, Oh well, hope it all works out fine!"
I hate your stinking guts. You make be vomit. You are the scum between my toes.
Every Michigan fan on the planet.
That is all that can be said at this point.
My brain will not comprehend what happened to us.
i'd rather have this guy out on the ice with us
That there is another Michigan hockey team right now and they are looking scary good in the NHL. I say we take all this anger and focus it towards the playoffs because the Wings have a certain Stanley Cup they would love to have back...
I didn't ask for my Darren Helm jersey for Christmas just to see the Wings get knocked out of the playoffs. They're Red hot right now and Chicago just lost AGAIN to fucking Columbus. All Wings, all the time. Bring it on.
Haha, I thought my little brother was the only person who owned a Darren Helm jersey...nice choice :)
I am as big of a Wings fan as anybody on this board -- HOWEVER, what scares me is that "angry (state of) Michigan hating god" has me excited about the Wings after a season of mediocrity (at best)...I really hope I don't end up super disappointed, AGAIN
Disclaimer: Mediocrity comment applies OCT-JAN and excludes Jimmy Howard
What bothers me the most is that not only should our OT goal have counted, but their 2nd goal was complete shit, too!!!! Why couldn't he blow the whistle that quickly when Hunwick ACTUALLY FUCKING COVERED IT (unlike fucking knapp).
Clearly, the "ccha refs eat their own poo" tag is insufficiently broad-reaching.
Thought you might find the following thread from USCHO.com interesting.
Some hockey east fans talking about the referee that did the Midwest ice hockey regional.
It's from 2006, but they note he has already lost a step and should consider retirement.
