NHL exposed:


J.R. Lind @jrlind
Lol the ref in Nash/Detroit just got caught on a hot mic admitting a penalty was a make-up call. “there wasn’t much but I wanted to get a f*king penalty against Nashville.” what a league
@nhl



Audio:

I mean, we’ve all thought it at one point or another. We want refs at all levels to be as unbiased as possible, but they are human and as human they are prone to their own bias, unfortunately. But especially in a pro level, they need to be better or we’ll soon see linesmen being replaced by motion sensors in the pucks and blue lines with an ‘invisible electric fence’ at the blue line with automated whistle to catch offsides and robotic arm from the Jumbotron to drop pucks.

You'll never eliminate this but the nhl needs to foster a ref culture where they at least wouldn't tell one another they planned to do it.


There is a slightly longer clip where he says he wanted to call nashville early in the period. Nashville scored on the one PP in the 1st period, so it makes sense that Peel comes out in the 2nd looking for a quick even up.

sigh... sad how much sense that it makes. yes we all know the refs do this all the time.


Finally, black and white audio proof what actually goes on in these guy's heads. This is regular practice. Refs have bias, its human nature, and the refs aren't afraid to exercise the free reign they have to accommodate it. NHL Corp. condones it. Explains why McDavid can't get a freaking call, refs have a bias, small people hate the greatness in other people, feel the need to bring them down to their mediocre level, its a power trip, Phycology 101.

PS.. you won't hear this story on Sportsnet or any other NHL media "partners"



As a former ref, this pisses me off.
I get it, we all make mistakes, but fabricating a call to even out the mistake is just bullcrap. Admit that you got it wrong, and continue to call the game to the rules to the best of your ability. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Same as if one team is constantly infringing and the other isn't. Keep penalizing the team that's infringing. If they keep doing it, keep penalizing them. The onus should be on them to start abiding by the rules, not for the ref to ignore the rules to allow them to continue breaking them.
Don't all of a sudden quit making the correct call, or even worse, fabricate a penalty against the other team to make it seem more fair.

I'd suspected for a while that there was an element of game management in the way the refs called NHL games, but to have that black & white proof of it is disappointing. I get it, it's an entertainment product, and close games are more exciting, but watching McDavid fly down the ice deking guys out of their jocks is exciting too, and when he can't do that because he has two 200lb anchors hanging off him, then how is that entertaining?

I REALLY hope that this gets picked up by the major media outlets and that the NHL has no choice but to do something about it, but I somehow doubt that'll happen.

Was a month away from retirement...

To add some context to this, Peel was scheduled to retire later this season. His final game was April 24. Still think it’s a big punishment...taking that away from him

It doesn’t say he got fired. Just that he is no longer working anymore.
My guess? He just retired early and this is the NHL trying to save face

That’s my guess as well. ‘Suggested retirement’

Wasn’t going to be calling playoff games this year. Take severance and hit a beach down south.

We all knew that refs make up calls all the time to make things seem "even". One team gets several in a row and you just know a penalty is coming but nice to actually hear it proved.

It's pretty frustrating. Fans pay to see the players, not the refs manage the game. Refs should try to be invisible. If a team deserves 10 penalties in a row and the other team plays clean, stop taking penalties. Call the plays on the ice.

The fact that he was only 1 month away from retirement really shows how empty and hollow this is. I bet they hope this blows over if he wasn't on the way out already.

It's a lot better than doing nothing. They could have went the other way, just said because he is close to retiring they will just reprimand him, give him some "education" maybe put him on reduced duty to run out his last month.

The fact that Tim Peel is being fired for this, and Colin Campbell still has a job with the NHL tells you pretty much all you need to know.

Pretty extreme result. What sort of a precedent does that set? Now what if a player is jawing at a ref and he gets a questionable penalty later? The ref gets canned? or is it only if he's a month away from retirement?

I think the official reasoning will be very carefully worded and rationalized. He might just get a month long suspension with pay or something. No chance the NHL would take a risk by firing him or just leaving him off the schedule.

NHL Corp firing the employee for carrying out policy.. likely would never have heard the hot mic if the rinks were full with fans.. CV-19 claims another victim..

Should be interesting to see if games are ref'ed any different (in the short term) ..

Wonder if refs sign a non-disclosure.. Peel would be an interesting interview for someone NOT affiliated with a NHL media "Partner", knows where the bodies are buried.. also wonder if the NHL refs have an association.. firing is pretty severe, 1st offence and all, guy's career is over... guy should get a lawyer.. then all the dirt comes out.. unless they fired him with a severance package that says he has to stay quiet...

Hilarious listening to the NHL rights holders like Stauffer dance around the refs game "managing", ie. incorporating personal bias in their calls, same old BS.

1260 TSN's (no rights holder) Nielsen went off on it.

GUARENTEE that Sportnuts soft sells it, McLean, Cassie, Hrudey, Friedman et al know its a precarious subject, their boss doesn't tolerate insubordination. Tim Peel wasn't fired for a make up call, he was fired for getting caught at it, he allowed the world to see what goes on behind the curtain.

Heard John Shannon on Stauffer talking about the Tim Peel/ ref game "managing" situation .. what an absolute NHL boot-licker .. talked like Peel was a lone wolf, and the NHL had to fire him.. problem solved, pats on backs all around..
He was shocked.. shocked .. that a NHL referee would call a make up penalty.. shocked..

Bettman is crapping bricks because the NHL wants to get big into sports betting, any sniff of refs deciding outcomes of games, WHICH THEY CURRENTLY DO, ROUTINELY, will raise alarm bells for government law makers in the USA .. bad for NHL Corp bizniz !!

Heard that too and they also mentioned that the GM's alway request at the annual meetings to allow the refs to manage the games rather than just call the rule book.

Yeah, not suprised at this in the least. Anyone who watches the McDavid Oilers play can see the management and bias against his skill. Reminds me very much of the old Gretzky Oilers and the way they were mugged in the playoffs (especially, but all the time really) by the Bruins, Flyers and Islanders - not to mention the Flames.

In fairness the dynasty Oilers engaged in equivalent thuggery. The 2-3 players the Oilers had with higher end skill was the difference.

Sometimes these refs just need a punch in the head to get them re-centered.. Mario almost got Kerry Fraser .. Fraser deserved it at least once in his career.. came close! icon_nod

I take it back about TSN 1260, just listened to Gregoire, guy is a NHL boot-licker as well, doesn't think make up calls are a thing..

I give credit to Ryshaug he's adamant that it is, and has always been, said NHL made Peel a scapegoat for a rampant problem.

Well managed game just finished- fLames lose again to Ottawa - lower standing team gets PP in the last 3 mins (it did take two crosschecks, one to the face of Stutzle, for it to be called though). Bet there is no suspension... because non-Oiler...

( don't normally watch the flames, but happened to look to check the score and saw it was tied with only about 8 or 9 mins left so I thought I'd lend my jinxing schadenfreude to the cause - success! 3-1 Sens)
