Poor refs

Recommended Posts

What a sad bunch of refs. They could not control the kindergardan class. How much times did they favor the Ducks and let them get away with anything.

Its to bad Boogard didnt play more to stop the foolishness. The refs are lucky no one was hurt bad.

The Wild beat the pants of the Ducks tonight and took them to school.

I agree the refs let it get that way but you've got to blame the ducks also. There is a differnce between chippy and flat out cheap. Kunitz pulls Burns hair in game 3, I mean what is that? Then at the end of this one Hall is in a straight up fair fight in which their guy dropped the gloves first and one of the Ducks skates the length of the ice to be the third man in. Add to that as this is going on May sucker punches Johnson. May had also punched Boogaard earlier with no call but of course won't drop the gloves. May could fight back in the day but is washed up now.

None of the ducks will drop them with Boogard....they all saw him break Fedoruk's face earlier in the year.

Harvey Lee,

What time of the year is Zebra hunting start?

I could have bagged three of those (Contact Us Please) tonight!

I wish that I was 50lbs lighter and 20 years younger so I could have been.................Oh sorry guys I drifted off to sleep there and was dreaming.

But them (Contact Us Please) refs must have been brothers of Stevie Wonder, oh if they could only sing! Both of those Duck players better be suspended for the remainder of the series!

We could have a Wild game feed with Zebras and Ducks!

GO WILD

Fish On!!!

lots of bad calls last night. Veilleux going to the penalty box after he was punched in the side of the face. Radivojevic- goal not allowed for his skate in the crease (you cant call that anymore anymore). Brad May and Thornton both should be suspended for a few games especially May for the sucker punch. Don't remember who layed the check from behind on Walz, horrible referring last night.

Well there was alot of bad calls last night, its a good thing it didnt cost us the game in the end, But lets hope johnson is ok! I think the wild won the game last night because they were more aggressive, getting in their goalies face, and protecting backstrom more, in which they werent doing in the first three games. I think the wild just got under their skin after finishing their checks more and playing a little rougher, and the ducks got frustrated and played poorly! It makes for a fun game to watch when the refs swallow their whistles, but they need to do it evenly, and call some of the severe shots, or it will get out of hand. I think the new refs wont let this happen in game 5, and there is to much on the line for the wild to go out and look for revenge. There should be a couple game suspensions after last nights game, and Im sure some fines handed out. I think burns is going to be fun to watch this guy has some guts, and some good swings also!

I will leave the refs alone for now cause everyone else has pointed out what they did wrong..As for the Wild, they have found a way to get to the ducks and beat them...Now it got out of hand last night but I think the Wild have a great chance now to step up and win this series if they keep playing tough and going to the net. When the ducks get upset they are useless...The Wild play great when things get tough...The next game will be good and I know the commissioner will be watching the reffering also....Which should keep things in control and the Wild will know what to do to win...Now they need to do it.

They've been getting screwed all series (all season for that matter) with calls but last night was just ridiculous. Hopefully Johnnson is ok and maybe all of that cheap, cowardly Ducks play and the one-sided officiating will just pump the Wild up even more.

May should be hoping he gets suspended, otherwise the Boogeyman will be his best friend in game 5... grin.gif.

Maybe it would be better if May ran into the boogie man instead of a longer suspension grin.gif

I hear that!

Suspensions of marginal players only do so much, Brad May for a lost Kim Johannson is not equal. Power plays as a result of antagonistic play, which Boogaard excels at drawing, are the key. Plus, I wouldn't mind seeing Boogey lay down the law, if you will!

I agree the refs let it get out of hand but its about time the wild stepped up and punched the ducks in the mouth. The Ducks were pretty rattled by the 3rd. I hope the wild open Game 5 the same way.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
