WHL refs Mo-up for Movember

If you're anything like me - and I'm pretty sure you all are - you've dished out an enormous amount of abuse towards referees and linesmen over the years.

For our entire hockey watching or hockey playing lives, we've all basically disagreed with every single call these lads have made, unless of course it was for our team. Sure, it's a bit unfair, but if they just made the right call all the time, we wouldn't have this problem. Am I right?!

One great call that officials have made recently is teaming up to raise cash for men's health and prostate cancer awareness, and they're now giving you a chance to "make amends" for all of those earlier disagreements. Now into their third year, the MOfficials are once again taking part in the Canadian Hockey League's Movember effort.

"The MOfficials are a group of WHL officials, officials from around the CHL and friends who raise money every year for the Movember campaign," says MOfficial Kyle Kowalski. "What we do is we grow our best moustaches and try to raise awareness for men's health."

After raising just shy of $15,000 in 2010, the MOfficials took home the coveted CHL moustache trophy last year by getting over $33,000 worth of donations together. In order to defend that title though, Kowalski says they've upped their goal.

"Our goal this year is $50,000, and that represents $1 for every man that was diagnosed with prostate cancer [in Canada] last year," says Kowalski. "It's a beautiful moustache trophy that is awarded out to the top CHL team. We're a group of officials that came together to raise money here and we'd like to win that trophy back again."

If you'd like to "make amends with the refs we all yell at," head to the MOfficials website and follow the links to donate.
