Referee Dong Shot Denied

The St. Louis Blues need all the help they can get. They’re bottom feeding in the league this year and things have started to get ugly. They already told  their coach Mike Yeo to pack his shit and get out of town back in November and merely a few days ago they were fighting each other at practice.

Bobby Bortuzzo was at it again last night doing whatever he can to jumpstart this sorry squad. Here he is firing a perfect saucy dish right to stripes for him to bang home with his twig, just barely penetrating a LuongHOLE.

In typical no fun NHL fashion they disallowed the goal, much to Florida’s relief… It’s not quite getting fucked by the officials, but you couldn’t rule out claims of unwelcomed sexual advances here. Turns out while you can certainly put the puck in the net with a dick, it just can’t be the ref’s dick.

Some boring nerd: “Well actually, it cleary states in rule 78.5 section iii – 

Disallowed Goals – Apparent goals shall be disallowed by the
Referee and the appropriate announcement made by the Public
Address Announcer for the following reasons:

iii. When the puck has deflected directly into the net off an official.”

Everyone else: BOOOOOO!!! BOOOOO THIS MAN!!

While the Blues overcame this injustice to win 4-3, the league should be doing everything they can for more goal scoring and banging pucks off refs should be fair game. Put some more pads on them so they’re nice and safe and stick a camera on them so we can see birds eye view of guys teeing up clappers going for that sweet ref deflect.
