Tim Peel was one of the most controversial referees to officiate in the National Hockey League.

He was banned from the NHL after he said he wanted to call a penalty against a specific team.

It seems that controversy follows him everywhere he goes.

In a recent rant on X, the former referee got on the bad side of two renowned reporters.

Tim Peel, Marc Spector and Frank Seravalli Get Into It on X



It all started by a very classless post by Peel, who shared private conversations with Spector.

"This is what happens when you call out an Edmonton reporter for asking Connor McDavid if he'd rather win 4-1. An idiotic question, of course they would. This is why some players don't want to play in Canada. Connor played his ass off tonight! #LetsGoOilers"

Later, Seravalli replied:

"Hey Tim, nice work tweeting private convos. Ah, that's right, you couldn't spell class if I spotted you the a-s-s.

Paid any visits to berate teenagers in referee locker rooms recently? Remember that?

Or did you drunk tweet it and delete like usual?"


"Ahh that hurts Frank🤣. Your buddy Spector has been in the business for 35 years I'm sure he can fight his own battles. He messaged me because you guys want everyone else to be held accountable except yourselves when you ask ridiculous questions. No wonder players want out of Canada."


The best part of this whole thing:

"an underrated part about this whole thing is learning that Tim Peel has his iPhone's text size set to be bigger so he can read it

no wonder why he missed so many calls during his career"


We'll follow the situation and report any update on that kerfuffle.
