No suspension for the hit on winchester (or penalty), chris neil gets a penalty for getting speared, refs influencing the decision for so many games (many sens games, including game 6 @ home, not to mention game 6 of the cup finals).

I'm hoping the next cba can introduce a coach's challenge....its high time now. And make the refs more accountable. Can't do much in the way of shanahan being more consistent...

Apparently some of the GMs don't want a challenge because of the way that the cameras are set up in each arena. Some are much better than others, putting the owners of the better systems at greater risk of getting more penalties against them in their home games. Of course, that goes both ways (they'd also be able to challenge more confidently, knowing that their video setup will catch whatever infraction they want to challenge), but it still makes them more vulnerable than a team with a terrible setup.

That was the dissent that was reported the last time this issue came up.

Sense that does not make.

After the issue was brought up before, they said that the difference in video equipment at the different arenas meant that different teams would have different abilities to review plays in their own barn. The discrepancy between arenas was enough for them to nix this idea in the past.

They manage to review goals from every arena...they could manage.
