Seriously, I do. I work with him. He's a good dude. He knows the ref from last night pretty well.
But here's his take on the call last night. This shows how completely fucked up a refs' opinion is on really important plays in a game. Should be like football. Wait until the play is dead to blow the goddamn whistle.
Me: "Gravellese cost Michigan the game in the 1st OT. Blew the whistle when the puck was loose under the goalie and a Mich player knocked it in a split second after the whistle. No goal. Miami wins in double OT. Literally the worst call I've ever seen.
Him: "Sounds like he lost sight of the puck... it happens."
The lesson, as always; Refs aren't humans.
