North Dakota fans decry ‘DU Advantage’

Fighting Hawks fans cite head coach Jim Montgomery’s ‘special relationship’ with the referees which elevates his status above all others. Not to mention Denver’s deep pockets and cozy NCHC relationships which allow them to impact the way games are called.

The emotional trauma in the Dakotas is palpable as families, neighborhoods and even childhoods have been destroyed by this hockey injustice.

There have been entire columns written on Sioux Sports forum and Sin Bin about the mystical power which allows Denver to miraculously escape penalties. We would like to address these questions posed on the Sioux Sports Forum:

LetsGoDU: Stack – It’s that “Magness Electricity” that all the Fighting Hawks fans talk about when they come to Denver.  DU just broke the stadium decibel level record this season when giving out free coupons for Anthony’s Pizza. BTW, Sertorre got fired by DU because he never knew how to work the refs.
