Thanks Paul!

I wish the Wing could see, what we the fans see, that the reason the Red Wings have so many fans and continue to celebrate Players like Gordie Howe this past week, is because We Believe in Them and we want them to Believe in Themselves MORE

They are part of a long history, incredible coaches and support staff, and announcers, phenomenal players, with a tons of skills…..., if they would just be confident and believe in themselves, and be more confident when they hit that ice, and do everything with that positive energy, and spirit of We Can, We Will and DO IT!

And that was made evident last night and other nights, when they scored that goal with 7.7 seconds to go in the game against NY Raiders, to tie the game and make it possible to go into OT for a chance to Win.  And when Ericson engaged in a scuffle, sticking up for his teammate, being hit hard unnecessarily. 

I also agree the calls need to be consistent, it’s ridiculous, and since I have been consistently watching the Wings play, the last five years, it just seems like Wings don’t get Fair treatment, by the other players and by the referees. The Wings are professional, they tow the line, follow the rules and get hit, pushed, slashed, tripped, and more…..and the refs ignore a lot. For example: Obviously getting high sticked (last night-Abby) to the point of bleeding on the ice, and no call, Really? Don’t get me wrong I believe in Hockey there are times that fighting is a good thing, I certainly had my share of hits when I played.

I just don’t understand it.  If Gary Bettman is the problem, some say it starts at the top and rolls downhill, well he needs to be removed. The Commissioner should be neutral,  supportive of the institution of Hockey and if he can’t be, then he needs to be replaced.

Sorry to be so long winded, don’t know what got into me.  smile

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!
