Your dismissal of statistics that directly contradict your narrative of the Canucks as divers further underscores the irrationality of your animus towards the team.
In addition, you failed to extend your reasoning to its logical conclusion: If diving does not always get called, then that applies to all
teams, not just the Canucks. Indeed, if the Canucks are frequent divers, as you keep insisting, then they would face even more scrutiny by the officials than other teams and should thus have a greater number of diving penalties. Yet the Canucks are tied for the lowest number of diving penalties in the league (i.e., zero).
Your insistence on clinging to beliefs without any objective foundation is bordering on neurosis. For your sake, I pray your team is good next year, so you can channel your energy in a more healthy (and less pathetic) direction.
