Sick and tired of all that "bad/biased officiating" excuses

177 posts in this topic

Alright here we go,

It's not just Canucks games that are ref'd like 2 year olds (actually, shouldn't be dissing 2 year olds), other games around the league are ref'd like crap as well. And yes, the ref can determine the outcome of the game.

If the ref's would stop all the BAD/BIASED officiating, maybe we wouldnt have the excuse...

Unfortunately, refs are gods and the NHL doesn't give a sh*t about it

Jester13> Yes, it was the last game against CGY that made me to start with this topic. Tremendous amount of whining when CGY scored a goal after AV's penalty. But...we didn't lose because of refs. We lost because we were not able to shred the 3rd-string team to pieces for 58 previous minutes. For whatever reason.

Sorry. I come from a country where there was a HUGE affair about REALLY biased officiating in soccer (including corruption etc.). Even in THAT case teams were able to overcome this. And it is a damn difference to have bad calls in a sport where no or single goal in the whole match are quite normal when comparing to hockey.

And as you mentioned - the bad calls/errors are affecting all teams. Not only us. They are simply part of the game. Please, accept defeats, take lessons. Do not cry.

Me too. Have been for years but it seems like no other organizatin or city likes to blame the refs for the loss like Vancouver does. Some accountability would be nice. And I'm not saying refs aren't incompetent at times because hell yes they are. But EVERY team deals with them and it all evens out in the end. Good teams can over come a bad penalty or two. Blaming the refs for every loss is weak and the easy way out.

Every single time Canucks lose a game, the most common "explanation" one can read on CDC is whining about how wrong (or biased) the officiating was or how bad calls occurred. Crap. We don't lose because of referees. If we lost, it was because the opponents outplayed us and scored more goals than we did. Referees are people, they do make mistakes. Bad calls are part of the game and they need to be handled and overcomed in the same way as opponent's forwards, defensemen and goalies. The players know it, the coaching staff knows it...only, who apparently doesn't, are crybabies from CDC.

Please, stop with that BS and act like men. No one likes a whiner.

Watching that 3rd period in Calgary, we deserved to lose. Bad call or not. AV is just upset that the refs cost us the loser point.

coyotecanuck> Oh, come on! You are merely describing situations that happened and influenced our performance in a negative way. Yes, they did. Nobody denies it. What I am saying, good team is able to move over (which Canucks actually do) and fans should do the same.

I will stop 'crying' over the bad games when the refs actually call a game fairly....so like never! For all of you who are saying its not happening in Vancouver its happening everywhere well doesn't that fact alone prove that there is a major problem in the NHL regarding officiating? Regardless of other factors (the team was playing badly anyways etc) if a ref manupilates the outcome of the game by handing out fake penalties it is cheating and it should no longer be accepted! You say you are sick of the whinning over the refs well OP I am sick of watching my team lose because of game mangement!

The inconsistency is horrible. I just read Kerry Frasers answer to this, and it just incensed me even more.

I usually disagree with posts that start out like "this is the new WWE", but today, I am at least a little in agreement. I do not understand a reffing system where there is no accountability for the ref. It is mind boggling.

And what it actually makes me feel is disheartened and discouraged. For the collective group of players, owners and league officials to expect us to put the lockout debacle behind us and then to present us with this product, is a violation of my intelligence and patience as a fan.

I love the game, but truthfully tune much of the game out now when watching because it just gets my dander up to a level of ridiculousness over the blatant bias in the refs calls.

A sad, sad fan.

OK, let me ask you this way: How many of you do some sort of a (team)sport where there are refs in place? And if you do - when was the last time coach came into the locker room after you lost a game and said "Hey, we've lost 'cause of refs. If there were no bad calls, we would win."

Again. Players should be (and they actually are) able to move over errors in calls. You should be too.

:lol: Sorry, I would respond with a more detailed response, but the irony of someone whining about other people whining is a bit too much for me.
