Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

The NHL is a joke: there's no way this is not a goal

Hurricanes-Bruins, Game 2. At the end of the second period, the Hurricanes scored a goal, but the refs ruled it no-goal on the ice. The pictures are from the goal-review. The above pictures show the puck behind the red line; unfortunately, the camera angle is from BEHIND the red line (the crossbar is not directly above the red line). Even though our angle is compromised by poor camera-positioning, you can still see some white ice between the puck and the red line (the orange circle on the top picture circles this area). Despite the clear evidence, the NHL ruled this no goal. It's insane. If the camera were directly overhead the crossbar, which it should be, you would only see more white ice between the line and the puck. Thankfully, Carolina is winning by 2 goals with 3 minutes left, so it seems that the NHL's incompetence will not cost them the game.

If you can have it clearly then why can't the nhl have it clearly?
