The Terminology Used In Hockey
The language used in hockey is so detailed that only a true hockey enthusiast can really understand each and every term that's used by referees and many of the terms used are also the same things that cost some teams penalty shots or even time in the penalty box. There are a total of 27 different plays that are considered penalties according to league rules and regulations. In order to be a referee one must know all the terms and what they mean and to be able to execute them during a game. A hard-core hockey fan can learn this easily through enough exposure to the game.

Many athletes don't have smart people working to help protect their money.
