and nobody went home too disappointed, as far as I could see...'cept maybe Rampage 3000, who guaranteed a win on opening night for Prince Rupert.must be in by now ??? or what?? wheres the party guys where is the party???
Hey there........just wondering about the refs. Are the guys working these games the same young fella's who work BCHL (Quesnel & Prince George etc?) or are they some older but qualified officials who have been around quite awile?PR did great they were on kitacrap the whole game the refs made me puke there refing sucks monkey **lls and didnt ,count 1 of rampge goals and that number 3 is pretty coky
eddy, to answer your question the refs are generally local guys who have the qualification (on paper) to ref senior hockey. There are afew guys who officiate the BCHL/WHL, but those guys are usually only brought in to Vanderhoof and Houston. The expense of paying for these guys to go any further is just to much for most teams when they can find guys in thier back yard. Kitimat did bring them in for the finals last year though. I find the biggest difference between the local guy and the more experienced guy is the communication with the players.this early in the morning -- that should have read "One thousand NOISY fans... and no one went home disappointed..."
