This story made my day, and I am very glad I had the chance to share it with you. I have been a hockey referee for over 10 years. I have been a referee for over 7 years when I was a teenager in Canada. I have been a referee for over 20 years in the United States, and I have been a referee for over 30 years in the Netherlands.
So, I have been a referee for over 30 years. I have been a referee for over 30 years, and I have been a referee for over 30 years. My son came home and told me he was going to referee a hockey game. He came with the best equipment. He was wearing a red helmet and red jersey. His skates were blue and red. He is also a very big hockey fan. I told him that he would be fired. I told him that he was fired.
I understand that in the United States, refereeing is a competitive position. Many of the men that I have worked with have been on the job for a long time, and they don’t really want to quit, so they do continue to referee. In the Netherlands, the referees are considered a bit of a joke. It seems like the best ones are only in the position to referee 3-4 games a year.
I think I knew that he was going to be fired by this point. The skates were blue, and he did not have time to find a new pair of skates, since he was fired.
In Canada, the problem is more of a problem of the referees themselves. The head of the NHL, Gary Bettman, has said that he prefers to have referees that are not afraid to quit, as the referees may be on the job a long time. While this appears to be an improvement over the Netherlands, I think the problem is that NHL referees are extremely motivated to get through one game a year, so they don’t want to quit.
The problem is that the referees are also super high-pressure, so you want to get your job done quickly. This is a huge problem in hockey because the players are also under duress, so the referees are also worried about their own safety. The problem is that the players do not want to be fired, so the referees have to take a risk sometimes, and that risk can be to do something stupid.
In the latest example of that, the referee for the Florida Panthers was allegedly fired for not getting the call right. That’s a bad thing, but a bad referee is still a bad referee, and there are some people who have the same problem as the Panthers’ referee.
What happens when you can get a call wrong? What happens if your referees don’t get calls right? The last thing you want is to have someone who has the same problem as you get fired for making a mistake. It is just another way to get stuck in a time loop.
Well, that’s what Hockey Central did last year, with a fake time loop. When the Florida Panthers were in a losing streak, the league sent out a player who had a similar problem as the Panthers, a guy who knew better and was told to stop talking. He kept saying, “This is the time to stop talking.” That’s when the league fired him (and the player who was the referee) because he didn’t get the call right.
Well, that is a bit of a stretch because the league did it with the help of its referees, not the players. You can see this time loop by looking at the stats for the Florida Panthers. They had a 6.7% winning percentage when the League fired the player, and they ended up with a 5.2% winning percentage when they fired the referee. There was no time loop involved because the players fired him.
