The refs ARE biased, see science proves it!

So on my way into work this morning NPH had a peice about the NHL and pentalies. Aside from the obvious fact that they had no clue what hockey was or is, and explained it in a manner indicating that the audience isnt familiar with it (a penalty is when someone does something wrong and he has to go sit by him self while his team only plays with four players, while the other team plays with five (and this is a power play...)). Anyway, they did some fancy statistical analysis and came to the conclusion that teams wearing black jerseys get an average of 2 more minutes in the box the guys in white. Personally I dont think the results of this are very conclusive just for the fact of how inconsistant the refs are in the league. Anway, here is da link:
