Penalties are kinda dumb, really. And there also kind of random and subjective. Any infraction of the rules that goes on in one’s own box results in a goal like, what, 80% of the time? And they completely change the game!

Games where a penalty affected the winner of the game: 8.6%

Doesn’t seem like that much, I guess. Not as much as I would of thought, but obviously our remembering of our team getting screwed by a contentious call is probably amplified.

So yeah. Video replay sil vous plait, penalties are clearly a big part of the game, and with the amount of impact penalties have, we can’t screw this up as much as it seems the refs do.
