I dont know about any other leagues around the world but the standard of officials in the UK is TERRIBLE the majority of them wanting to be center of attention and its just wrong fans want to see Hockey not men in stripes on a power trip and somthink in the UK needs to be done immidiatley before our leagues at all levels lose VALUBLE fans and players. And also what is ticking me off is the amount of favaritism of officials that their is at all levels of our games. Ok yeah the maybe a shortage off officials but surely their can be somethink done about the standard officiating.

Whinge over feel free to comment and slag me off all you want just my opinion

Hey, Bombers foreva! I agree about your comments
re: officiating. I think that, over here, hockey is
the sport of the 4 major ones, NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, that
needs the most work. I have done some officiating
myself, and I am shocked at the poor job I sometimes
see. They don't have an easy job, but some of the
officiating I see, borders on incompetence.

Sorry bud, NBA refs turn that league in the the WWE. Teams with the bigger ($$) market share (generally) will win the war - especially in a playoff series.

Hockey is a very hard sport to ref (Personally, I suck at it) - maybe the NHL refs could use a more active instant replay system as a check.
