Except we have the advantage to form our opinion after watching several replays (slow motion and regular speed). Let me ask you this, not sure if you have ever played sports or not, but let's assume you did. Have you never been in a situation in which you were close to the play and while it happened you had one opinion and then afterwards when you had time to assess the play and watch it again on film your changed your opinion? I can say I have which is why there is no point to react one way or another in the heat of the moment. So you can have your opinion, even though it seems like you are heavily relying on what others say but I don't think you have any reason to be condescending given the circumstances here. See above answer. The refs didn't see it and that is what counts, still doesn't mean it didn't happen. As I said, I still trust my eyes and my super inferior understanding of physics (acceleration, force, counter-force, mass, etc.) over emotionally charged individuals. I have zero stake in this game. I couldn't give a damn about either of those teams. If both teams moved I wouldn't shed a tear, if both teams somehow co-win the Stanley Cup and cure cancer in the process I might shrug my shoulders.
