I think you're full of it.

Have you watched Burrows play? He takes dumb penalties ... all the time. Whenever he gets beat he pulls the guy down. When he goes into the corners he basically sticks the guy somewhere in the legs everytime. He's chippy but small and that gets him a lot of penalites too. Worst of all he's a yap box and he yells at the refs all the time.

Take the homer glasses off folks, Burrows is leading the league in penalties because he is undisciplined, not because there is a league wide referee vendetta against him.

It's time for Burrows to start thinking about the team because his penalties are hurting the entire team.

All players can get a bad rep. It's up to the player to fly under the radar and pay a cleaner game then usual, not the refs job to be extra nice to him. This happens to all players, you got to suck it up and get back in their good books by playing 100% by the rules.

I agree... Burrows and Kesler especially get called for penalties purely because of their reputation. Both are much more professional now and it is really frustrating to see officials make those calls not based on the play, but instead based on the player.

After the Auger incident he even claimed on a HNIC intermission interview, that Kelly Sutherland was one other the leagues best refs. And that was after taking some bad calls and getting chopped down all night in front of the net.

There is no doubt in my mind, he is being targeted by the league. He has already tried to make amends, what else can be done. Up to MG now? Or maybe that will make it worse?

I half (1/2) agree with you Dogbyte, but in saying that, I witnessed Bur getting a full on head check forearm directed to his head, not more than ten feet in front on me, no call. A play just after that, taken out, without the puck on a rush....explain that. (by the way the force, in that clear head shot was more than #36 who got a game for Hossa's confused thoughts)

Yoets vs Nucks

It's actually no even funny anymore. I'm with you on Bur's playing style causing lots of his "run in's with the law" but hey, it's pretty obvious now, the refs have a HUGE hate on for him.

The Auger incident absolutely destroyed Burrows. These refs aren't perfect. Every once in awhile some of them will do their part to stick it to Burrows. I firmly believe this is happening, but it's almost impossible to prove which is why it can continue. frack these garbage refs.
