NHL Referee Busted On Hot Mic Admitting To Calling Bogus Penalty On Purpose To Screw The Nashville Predators

Nashville Predators fans are not happy with an NHL ref who was caught admitting to calling a bogus penalty on purpose.

During Tuesday night’s Predators-Red Wings game, a ref was busted on a hot mic saying “there wasn’t much but I wanted to get a f*cking penalty against Nashville.”

Here’s the tripping penalty that was called by the ref.

Update: The NHL identified the referee as Tim Peel and he appears to have been fired.

Fans crushed the ref and demanded the NHL take action against him.
