He probably has a doctorate in something like 'Media administration' or 'contempory art'. I really doubt he is an MD.

where they get him from? a NHL game?
Agreed, I didn't think any of the new refs made a negative impact, really, expect the guy who thought he was a coach. If you are going to just ramble on and on about keeping busy, how can you expect the fighters to even listen to you? If you never stfu and then you want them to break, don't be surprised if they aren't even listening any more :P Personally, I thought that was the best exchange of the fight, and the ref was bitching about it.
