Goal Judges Are Pissed Off - And Banished To The Rafters Like Pigeons

Great article here by Tim Panaccio over at Hockey Buzz on the decision by the NHL to remove the goal judges from behind the nets and put them in the press box where they can press their little button. Why? So the teams can sell the goal judge boxes as premium seating. The Flyers have already jumped on the gravy train as you will see.

To me it makes sense. The goal judges have long been obsolete...yea we all love the little red light, but that doesn't mean the team has to sacrifice a fair size of revenue and give up some wicked seats.

I think it would make more sense to just have the red light operated by the same guy who hits the goal horn.
