Trending Bad Officiating

Well the Senator's braintrust had a meeting with the officials following last night's game, only adding fuel to the blogosphere (Sensay) (SensTown) (6th Sens). Now it is always the case that the home crowd complains about bad calls against their home team, and the absence of calls against the opposition. But I agree with the numbers, there is something going on -- someone has it in for the Senators.

The thing I don't get though -- is why. Why are the officials tilting the playing field? What would they gain by artificially weighing things against this team? Who might they be trying to punish -- Murray? Melnyk? Alfredsson? Leclaire?

Heatly? Nah...

Until we can understand the motivation, we really can't solve the problem.
