    NHL Fires Referee Tim Peel Following Hot-Mic Comment About Penalty Call on Predators

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/referee...024632571.html

    In Tuesday night’s game between the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings, as the broadcast was heading to commercial, one referee was caught on a live microphone explaining how he wanted to penalize the Predators to, presumably, create a more even match.
    "It wasn't much but I wanted to get a f—in' penalty against Nashville early in the...” and then the poor producer cut it off just as it was getting good.
    Update: After the game, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported that the NHL would be looking into the incident. Stay tuned!

    They aren't so much arbiters as they are managers.

    I mean this is just how refs talk. I’m assuming they let a lot of borderline calls go and it was time to give them one. I don’t think any NHL player would take issue with that hot mic moment

    They think they are playing in the game instead of reffing the game.

    no, no sports person is ok with that. Especially not a hockey player in that game.

    Literally every sports person should have issue with that action.

    It's perfectly reasonable to go with something like "warning, warning, penalty" if it was a thing going on (i.e. "I wanted to get Nashville a fucking penalty early in the period if they didn't stop the the borderline holding")

    This was a borderline dive-trip. I find it hard to give the benefit of the doubt here.

    Apparently he was suppose to retire at the end of the season, so the NHL made it an early retirement

    I'm fine with him being fired for this reason

    Yea pretty sure this happens virtually every game by the refs, making a scapegoat of Peel, but they had no choice.

    Yeah, what Karan said. This is has been commonplace for years. I'm glad it's come to light. I really don't like how the referees feel they need to make things more 'fair' by trying to make the powerplay opportunities as equal as they can. If one team is being more disciplined than the other, then so be it. Don't screw with the games to try and even things out.

    Nah, too much sports betting and shit these days. You can’t be caught on mic saying you’re... fixing games.

    Feel bad for the guy because game management 101 involves this stuff. It happens every game in every sport. It's part of sports. IMO it's often good refereeing to do this to keep the game under control. There's a lot of grey area that people who have never refereed a game don't really understand when it comes to managing the tempers of adult men playing competitive sports. You don't want anyone to get hurt and mismanaging a game is a good way to get people hurt. I've done it before, and I regret it.

    The nhl of course had no choice here, especially with the prevalence of betting, than to take this action because whether or not this is part of the game it is dangerous for it to be a public facet when people are staking money.
