Jeremy Roenick takes on NHL playoff referees


Think what you will about Jeremy Roenicks commentaries on Versus during the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. I personally like to mute (or fast forward) the TV during intermission!
I'm sure he was hired to be the edgy retired NHL'er opinion that goes against the grain---blahblahblah... He usually doesn't add much to the topics being discussed in my opinion until he said this:

Props to you Mr. Roenick. The officiating in this years NHL Stanley Cup playoffs have been awful. Half the games they seem to be calling anything while the other half they seem to ignore EVERYTHING. The League needs to somehow make these guys accountable for their inconsistency. There is nothing more frustrating than watching the stripes give one side all the calls. Maybe if more of these commentators and announcers started to speak up, the outraged fans would start to act on it. Disgusted fans won't by NHL merch or buy tickets to the games. Keep pissing of the fans and you'll see what happens. More empty arenas and more teams claiming BK.

C'mon Bettman- This is why you make the big bucks.
