In a previous thread I outlined a few ref's that consistently call against Van.
The original thread here at the corner was here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9291&start=255
The source I quoted from CDC - http://forum.canucks.com/topic/327389-t
Bottom line, the CDC poster identified several officials that have a tendency, in the poster's mind, to call more against the Canucks than average. The refs were: O'Rourke, O'Hallaran, Peel, Walsh, Watson, Sutherland, Kozari, Joanette and Leggo.
As an update
Game 1 - Officials: Paul Devorski, Dan O'Rourke
- 8 penalities, Bitz's 5+game earned for being a dumb ass.
Game 2 - Officials: Chris Lee, Wes McCauley - 7 penalties, two of them 10 min misconducts ending Hansen & Lappy participation
Game 3 - Officials: Sutherland
and Polloc - 9 penalties assessed for 23 min against.
Game 4 - Officials" ???? dunno yet, can't find source
So thus far we seem to be hit/miss on getting these "identified" refs. What isn't hit or miss is the amount of penalties we are being assessed (including 3 delay of games). So the question is - is there a consistent bias playing out against the Canucks (the conspiracy) or are we really playing this far outside the rules?
I for one am not sure but invite comment by those who've followed this more than I have.
