In Topic: Diving

Start making the calls for diving a double minor. That way the penalties do not offset if a player is stupid enough to dive. Just gotta get the Refs to call them though.

Another thing that bothers me about this is the appearance that nothing would have been called if it weren't for a commercial timeout. It gave the refs a chance to find something. What a crock.

After watching hockey evolve for over 50 years, I'm disgusted with where the game is going. The league is becoming a joke. Intentionally grabbing a players head and smashing it into the glass, no problem. Open ice hits= suspension. I'm sick of the inconsistency.

In Topic: Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

I started rooting for the Wings because they were the team that won the Stanley Cup the first year I started watching hockey. If that makes me a bandwaggoner, so be it. Oh yeah the Cup I saw them win was in 1955 so I guess that makes me a Connestoga waggoner. :) No matter how bad the posters of today think they are, they are by FAR better than the dead wings era.

I look at it differently. I do not see it a a drastic decline in the Wings, but rather, an improvement in the competition. The salary cap era was created to gain parity in the league, and I think it has done so. For a lot of those years prior, the Wings had an open checkbook and could dominate the league in paying for talent, and it showed. Unfortunately, it has caused a lot of spoiled fans that are now longing for the return of those days. Well, people, those days are over.
