They will hold a 3 day mini-camp to get everyone back up to speed. Oh yeah, they also get decent rasies! :)

Walkom points out an official's errors, but realizes that mistakes happen.

He expects officials to minimize those mistakes and to learn from their errors, but he is always positive and supportive, especially with the younger referees.

He also has the ability to see the big picture. Although he won't admit it publicly, Walkom has let it be known to some general managers that he was concerned about a slippage of standards in the two weeks prior to the Olympic break.

As a result, he has called for a command performance in Toronto on Friday, at which point the standards will be reinforced in a three-day refocusing camp.


That's encouraging, but with the history of officiating over the past 10 years, I am still skeptical. Here's hoping Walkom continues to fight the good fight.

It would probably get his point across if he called one of the veteran boobs over and then shot them right in the head and said 'any questions?' 8)

You assume one of the veteran boobs would be smart enought to even realize they had been shot in the head. :lol:

I looked up "veteran boob" on Wikipedia, and all I saw was a picture of Paul Devorski. Not sure what that means...
