Roland Garros / French Open (tennis)? Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

Too bad for you! Nadal v. Djokovic was an absolutely amazing 5-setter.

So, I can count on your mom (sorry, MIL) and Bev's to be the only ones watching this event? LOL!!!!
Hell, even MY mom watches them silly car racers "turn to the left, turn to the left, turn to the left). Damn, I see that I am SOL on this front.

so about the pushing in front of the benches.  simple fix.  move the benches to oposing sides of the rink.  not that hard, it used to be that way at most rinks till someone decided it made for beter TV if they could pan from one bench to another.

Every game I watch they have this camera to show replays from the oposite angle, therefore on the other side of the ice.  one could think that camera could show the bench, like it now shows the penalty boxes. 

sure its a bit of work, but think of the savings in injuries and bullshit
[Head banger] Thursday, May 30, 2013 7:41:33 AM 
not I buddy.  call my mother in law.  of course I think she watches the men only.

Kerry fraser was just on TSN saying that the Chi goal in the third should not have been disalowed.  I didnt see it his way, but I guess it doesnt matter now.  all the pannelests agreed that it shouldnt have been blown down there

I am pissed off at  the fact that my wife got home from dinner with her mom, half way thru the intermission announced we had to go to walmart because my son needs dress pants for tomorw. 

FUCK

someone else in this house needs a fucking drivers licence.


watched the filpula replay.  I dont see a slewfoot there.  coincidental roughing maybe.

[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Wednesday, May 29, 2013 10:09:22 PM 
Might have been different if Shaw hadn't Slewfooted Filppula and took him out of the game in the beginning of the 1st period. I'm still pissed about that!!

Damn, straight. Anyone from Detroit is a poser if they don't listen to the CBC when it comes to hockey.
As you say, not the greatest but MUCH better than NBC brilliant commentary such as I just heard: "someone tried to pass the puck to try and get things started!"
Well said, braniac. No, he passed the puck to honor the death of his dead mother.

screw the penalty, 2 minutes is now a first degree burn.  5 a second degree and a game misconduct a third degree burn. 

that might sort things out.  dont even blow the play down, just skate over and blast away.

I've been watching the replayed games that we were at and I can tell you one thing for sure, WOW are the fans at home missing a shit ton of bullshit going on!! They won't even show the shit the Hawks are doing because it isn't getting called and they won't draw attention to that by showing it. Not to mention, the announcers are up the Hawks asses, so everything is how the Wings are interfering, hooking, holding, etc. but nothing about the reverse which is happening much more often. And yes, goal number 3 in the last game was scored on an uncalled offsides play. Everyone in The Joe was booing immediately when no call was made. Of course they won't replay that or show it from a different angle or replay it in any way. I smell BULLSHIT!! You wouldn't even know it was offsides if you hadn't been AT the game itself. Very interesting. I wish Mickey Redmond was announcing on one of the channels, at least we would get a straight answer about everything, whether we "got away with that one" or just him laughing at the obvious call against the other team that wasn't made followed by a WOW!

I vote for the robot refs with flamethrowers!!!!

If the Hawks do lose, someone had better send that whiny ass baby bitch Toe(w)s a truckload of tissues, because he will have another meltdown that puts a 4 year olds tantrum to shame!!

"Post-Vienna time" = ask Trix where she is in the world. After a certain hour, all the BS stops. Hence, "post-Vienna hour."

As for the ref situation, if the calls go our way in game 7, then I'll have no complaints!
Until then, maybe you could ask Hellrider to start welding some robots. Complete with flamethrowers, of course. LOL!

post vienna?

I guess its easier for the players, they know that ref a calls it one way ref B another.  they can learn the refs...

apparently in baseball its the same for umps and strike zones.  but yes consistancy would be nice. the comentators here talk about the ref not intruding in the game, but if a penalty is earned, call the damn thing.

maybe one day we can have robotic refs?

Personally, I enjoy the post-Vienna intelligent convo time here.

That said, be consistent in the calls!!!! Is that too much to ask? Crossing fingers and toes for the Wings already.

[Head banger] Tuesday, May 28, 2013 10:45:46 PM 
And thats the problem.  either you say these are the definitions, call every one, or say we will use judgment.  they say that these are the rules, yet every ref is different.  I dont mind so much them missing a call because they were screened or something, so be it.  the puck got an inch outside the line, the linesman is on the other side, again, fine so be it.  no one is perfect. 

the crosschecking.  thats a penalty.  the first time, to the back, to the chest to the neck, to the head, whatever.  call it.

oh well, glad to see LA won, hoping for detroit.  would like to see detroit boston in the final.

[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Tuesday, May 28, 2013 10:34:38 PM 
There are definite problems with the idea, as you pointed out. It's just really hard to take that the rules are up for such a wide variety of interpretation. I caught the replay of the game from last night. Funny, they never replayed the offsides that everyone in The Joe saw. Last night, we came home and they were talking about it on the NHL channel. The closest anyone came to saying it was offsides was, "Franzen threw the puck out of the zone and Toews doesn't appear to clear the zone." I also noticed that they never replayed any of the penalties/no calls that we had issues with. Wonder why Abby and the Hawk were given 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct? Abby was crosschecked 3 times to the ice - NO CALL. Which is funny because he got a 2 minute penalty for the exact same thing the game before and they said, "They'll give you 1 time, but you can't crosscheck him twice or they will call it." Uh huh. Abby went after the guy and I don't blame him. It's hard not knowing what will be called in each game, depending on the refs. People are talking about the Penalty Shot call against the Wings. Yes, it fits the definition. However, a lot worse has been done in the playoffs in the same situation and no call was made at all. They are also saying it's a problem with consistency and the lack of it makes fans very suspicious. YUP!!

[Head banger] Tuesday, May 28, 2013 5:20:28 PM 
the hard part is unlike football the game keeps going for 2 more minutes,  then you end up winding the clock back if someone changes a call. 

I have been told hockey is the hardest sport to referee.  I would argue soccer is, but both are damned hard.  not sure how you do a later review.  Watched the 10 worst calls in playoff history the other day, some calls were amazing.  one was 4 feet offside.  but thats a 30 year study of however many games per year to come up with 10 calls that bad. 

I wish they could stop changing the damn rules.  one year you can slash the stick, next year you cant.  imagine the hooking of the late 80's going on today.  shit the box would never be empty. 

still pissed off about the trapazoid.

And truly that is all that I am asking for - consistency. I played basketball and I know exactly how to get away with dirty shit if I was that kind of player, which I wasn't. It's all in the timing and acting, which I had a front row seat for I'm starting to think it would be a good idea to allow the coaches to challenge calls/non-calls similiar to American football. At least that way games wouldn't be decided because of bad calls or no calls.

NO SHIT!!! Abby gets his stick slashed out of his hands on a break away in another game and there is NO CALL AT ALL!!! WTF??? It's a crap shoot if you are going to get decent refs of not. And don't even start with the complete and utter bullshit that refs don't miss much (you know who I mean!). We tried to tape it while at the game, but of course a huge storm rolled in and nothing recorded. Looked to us like the Hawks were offsides on the play that resulted in a goal (Franzen threw the puck out of the zone and Toews never cleared out of the zone before it was brought back in). Smith needs to start wearing a Hawks sweater, Jesus he is horrible! Too bad DeKeyser had his thumb broken by the Ducks or this might be a different series.
