I mean is anyone actually shocked by this? Referee Tim Peel basically made up a call last night so the Predators would be shorthanded. Then got caught on a hot mic admitting to it, there was no way the NHL could let him continue to call games.
Look I’m not an idiot I know stuff like this happens all the time but it’s like everything else you aren’t supposed to do, just don’t get caught. Peel got caught and now he lost his job, it sucks for him but as the kids say now a days “It is what it is.”
You can bet your ass officials are going to be a lot more cautious as to what they say knowing the consequences now.
