FTFY,  subby

I think it can be either, in this instance, but it may change the meaning of the sentence: causing the result (effect) or influencing the result (affect).
Honestly, it's ambiguous.It's almost like a judgment call that could go either way.If only this had some similarity to a topic or past action being discussed by reasonable men and women.

At least someone gets it.

Yes, the point I was making was two-fold:
1) Getting to post that YKCD comic.
2) Pointing out that it did more than just influence the end of the game but rather directly caused it.

Donnchadha: If by "defend a non-call" you mean he a) agreed that Jagr hooked Malkin and then b) hemmed and hawed about how and when penalties get called in various situations without actually coming to a conclusion -- then yes.

He did a very good job of not answering the question.

I was gonna say...how is this ironic? He completely said at the end that the refs probably should have called it, having called numerous penalites throughout the OT periods. Especially the part where he said refs get in more trouble for non-calls than they do for weak calls.

That being said, if those are Kerry Fraser's written words I appreciate his writing. Very solid breakdown of what happened.

Awesome that one of the worst refs in the last 25 years is asked about a non-call considering the times he let shiat go because it was Game 7 and not Game 1 or a series.

Why don't we get Joey Crawford to comment on the Heat-Spurs finals or Angel Hernandez in the booth during the World Series.

Newsflash:  NHL refs aren't perfect, and never have been.   Far from it, actually.

Has Kerry commented on why Bergeron and Malkin weren't handed game misconducts for their post-period fight in game 1?   That isn't even a judgement call.

And lets not get into all the uncalled interference that goes on in this league.

Mr_Ectomy: Penguin fans whining about officiating?


To be fair, everyone whines about officiating when there's a perception that it hurts their team.  Penguin fans, Bruin fans, Blackhawk fans, Flyer fans, Oiler fans, etc.
