I saw a license plate here on Long Island the other day I thought you might appreciate... BOOMCGOO next to an Isles bumper sticker. Clever

I wonder how many have said that and hao many more times it will be repeated. Maybe he's been hired as the "court jester" of officials as a way to entertain and/or irritate fans. A diversion of sorts.

I don't usually blame refs for the outcome of a game but McGeough blew that game last night. The flames should have had a regulation win. I never understood why refs are so quick to blow the whistle. What is the worst thing that could happen if he waits to be sure?

AMEN! I have seen Mick McGeough affect the outcome of more games than any other referee, which is exactly what he's NOT supposed to do. Does anyone remember the Blues-Ottawa game last year? It was so bad, even the Ottawa fans on these very comment boards admitted we got shafted hardcore. How bad do you have to be to have the opposing team fans admit that you shafted the other team?

Good blog, and I agree. But you guys just can't finish against us.

I think he is the most hated Ref in all of the NHL... and if you eliminate refs that are famous for a single bad incident, I am sure he ranks up there as all-time hated Refs in all sports....

also the Dallas Stars vs. Edmonton Oilers where he called back the game tying goal in the final seconds on a phantom hand pass... where there were 3 officials with a better view of the play... McGeough is by far the worst ref in hockey and should have been fired years ago, but i guess we'll have to wait until he retires :(

Ya know... its kinda beautiful, all hockey fans around the league can agree on one basic thing - McGeough Sucks

We're all used to SOME bad calls and it wasn't one sided I felt that the avs had a few interference calls not given to them but that non goal... it almost seemed on purpose? That's not the first time he's made me feel like that in a game, he deffinitly has his teams and calls in their favour. If we win while he refs it's in spite of him.

There is a chant we hear in Nashville. McGeough smells of poo. Not very poetic but it does explain how the fans feel about this guy.

One thing brings together all hockey fans, the hatred for that one individual. The knowledge of when McGeough is calling a game can put you on edge for the whole game. Which comes with a direct fear of the fact that McGeough is calling a game. Didn't Roenick put it out there that he was not a fan?

The good news is he's retiring at the end of the season. The whole league should celebrate.
