Referee who tackled Barnett fined a game check.

Incidentally, I never really realized how much refs make. That's more than I would have guessed.

Good. Did you see that play? A ref basically rendered a player completely helpless. Had Barnett reacted as if he thought it was a player, he most definitely would have been suspended.

Be happy it wasn't more. We now should worry that Barnett has caused a riff between the fraternity of referees. Hope the Pack can get a fair game.

I could do the research, but I don't feel like it so I'll just comment on what I thought. When I saw the amount of the game check, it reminded me about how people used to (within the last decade) complain that football refs had to have other jobs and this wasn't right because it takes their focus away and doesn't give them training time to be better refs. So, did they end up changing the salaries? I mean, it's not huge money, but if I got an 8,000 dollar check 10-17 times a year for working once a week, I wouldn't be complaining about how they were forcing me to have a second job.

I'm still waiting for someone to say how this just proves that the Refs are biased towards Green Bay. I thought it would be pretty automatic.

I will say this, Hockey Refs are no doubt the hardest working officials during their game.
