      Con't.....

      .....So you will all see some very familiar faces again this year, and I expect some glitches since most of them have never worked a 2-referee system, and all of them claimed last year that they could/would never work a 2-man system.

      I know many fans disliked me, but I also know that my better days were well behind me, I'm not that stupid. I also need a hip replacement in the near future due to an old injury I suffered fighting a fire 11 years ago. So with the uncertainty to come this season, and to watch my son play lots of hockey, it was time for me to get out!

      I will honestly miss the banter with smart knowledgeable fans like yourself. Thanks for engaging me from time to time!!

      Regards,
      Chet

      thanks for your supportive words. I certainly know that no official expects to be "loved" by the general fan base as that would be impossible to do the job and make everyone happy.

      I am going to let you in on a little secret about part of the reason I am retiring this season, and I would think that most players & many fans will notice the difference between the general level of officiating last season compared to what I expect will happen once this season starts.

      The old regime (Sutton, Condon, etc.) have to be rehired by the league for the coming season due to a recent USA national labour-relations board decision. Sutton couldn't take being axed by the league very well, so he fought every legal way he could, and it paid off I guess because the labour board bought his arguments.
