yes you are correct it is a discussion. in post 4 and 5 the new rule was explained by boil3rmak3r and yourself. it s still be a judgement call maybe not all the time but, it still can be. I have learned many things from this forum. sadly one of them is that in your mind your opinion is the only one that's counts. you talk about being a adult and say bite me? lol a childish comeback indeed!

I don't know if you've got a bug up your rear or what, but I'm writing in an attempt to hash it out. History tells me you've started down a path from which recovery is unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
First off, prior to ten minutes ago, I didn't know you from jack. If you believe there's some sort of grudge, or that I seek you out, then you couldn't be farther from the truth. If not, good.
Second, nobody's debating that it's not a judgment call. My point was simply that there are plenty of judgment calls in hockey already, including several that both matter quite a bit more than this and which are far more likely to have been wrong. Your argument would be bolstered if you had evidence of them having screwed up even ONE of these icing calls during the hundred or so pre-season games, or even the thousands of games which have been contested under the hybrid icing rule. You presented no such argument, and when someone else (me) disagreed, you resorted to what basically amounts to name-calling.

So, again, participate in this thread, and on this forum, like an adult, or go away. I don't care which you choose, but your childish antics only serve to make you look bad, not me, and if they continue, you won't have the choice anymore.
P.S. Apologies for the first-grade logic, but if my opinion was the only one that counted, I wouldn't even respond to people that disagreed with me. Hell, I wouldn't have a forum. I like debate, and what you fail to understand is that I respect and like people who can actually engage in an intellectual debate without shrinking away and muttering childish insults. So, stick to the topic and debate it. The topic is not me. If you disagree with me, elaborate on why with a compelling post. Thus far, your reasons are weak, and the only thing I've done is call you out on that.
The OT stuff ends here. If you want to discuss hybrid icing, this is the thread. If you want to discuss the OT stuff, PM me. It doesn't belong here.
