That's the problem I have too. You don't call out a player by name because now you've put the name in the heads of the refs.
You think we'd ever see quotes like this?
"Finally, coaches and general managers were also told diving and embellishing will be watched closely.
The Ottawa Senators are sure to remind round one officials of this on a game by game basis as Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby has mastered the art of diving and embellishing contact in order to draw a penalty on the opposing team."
