    Re: High school hockey game called early

    So its OK for a high school student to punch an official in the face? Were you there? How is that you are in a position to second guess the people that were running the game?

    Yes. The source of the cyber attack is unknown. There are only four connections feeding internet to the country. Bloomberg News says that even determined freelancers could wreak havoc. So much is...
