Russian players felt cheated after their loss to the Americans on Saturday in Olympic group play, basically saying that Jonathan Quick and the U.S. team cheated on a disallowed Russian goal in the third period.
The fans have now taken the protest to the American Embassy.
There's a picket at US embassy in Moscow against Brad Meier, USA - Russia referee pic.twitter.com/ibXe1dcxZF— Igor Eronko (@IgorEronko) February 17, 2014
A (very) rough translation, via Eronko: "Ref needs specs" ... but more rude than that.
Meier, the official in question here, is an NHL ref from Dayton, Ohio. That's in America. CONSPIRACY!
