Any Doper Olympic hockey fans - what has changed...far less whistle blowing.

Title says it all really. Because the Aussie teams are always a chance and my eldest son played hockey as a kid, I watch all the Olympic hockey. Up to the last games it just seemed that every game was a whistle-a-thon and no matter how exciting the game was the officiating ruined it. Now the games seem to flow much more. What has changed?

Are we talking field hockey here?

Yes, in Beijing.
I’ve noticed smoother flow in the games as well. I’m not sure what the cause is. I don’t see any rule changes anywhere.

I guess they just aren’t calling everything.
