NHL referee Tim Peel was caught on a hot mic admitting to calling a bogus penalty against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. The NHL wasted no time in taking action.
They fired his bogus penalty calling ass on Wednesday morning.
Maybe if you're a mic'd up ref, you shouldn't express how you wanted to call a penalty against a team earlier in the game, changing how you ref the rest of the game.

When are professional officials going to learn? Nobody is watching the games for you. You miss a call then you miss a call. Don't go making bogus makeup calls because you have to get even with the team.
I love this move by the NHL. Major League Baseball could take some notes and start firing bad umpires. Looking at you Angel Hernandez.
