Phaneuf headshot on Paille (no suspension talk??)
 
CBC (who showed the Ference hit as much as possible) have yet to show the Phaneuf hit even once. Are they covering for their team's captain?


It has become so apparent that Canadian media decides what hits should be suspended or not. If there is no (media driven) hype for a hit then there is no suspension.


Apparently Paille was bleeding, but stays on his feet a lot more than Grabovski...
Was it much different than the Ference hit?

So, I just thought we need to represent our guys and bring attention to it. Does anyone have a replay of it?


Quares27 05-04-2013 08:48 PM

That's about as much of a headshot as a glove punch in a scrum. I suppose we should review all of those too. And, funny enough, I haven't seen the Canadian media mention anything about suspending players for glove punches in a scrum. SO much bias.

BruinsBtn 05-04-2013 08:48 PM

Agreed. Gotta throw the head back and dive like Kadri.


Horrible refereeing in this game so much interference

finchster 05-04-2013 08:50 PM

I see we have turned into Montreal

Cronuss 05-04-2013 09:09 PM

Phaneuf
 
If he isn't suspended for his deliberate elbow to the head of Paille, then we know that justice isn't in the corrupt NHL dictionary.

acr 05-04-2013 09:12 PM

Agreed.

Point of contact was the head (rule 48 violation) AND it caused a visible injury with a cut to the bridge of Paille's nose.

Was it a blatant target? I don't know, Phaneuf is a big guy and sometimes it happens to Chara that his arm comes up on someone just due to the fact that he has 7 inches on them, but it sure as heck looked like a forearm to the face.

CBC replayed the Ference hit about 50 times to manufacture a suspension and indignation. I bet they completely buried this.

Cronuss 05-04-2013 09:12 PM

I can't fathom how this isn't being discussed.

Amongst the league, and especially among Bruins fans.

Whatever.

Cronuss 05-04-2013 09:13 PM

This hit was many times worse than Ference's incidental contact that granted him a suspension.

Dion should be out at least a game, or more.

Deliberate elbow to the head, with the primary point of contact being the head.

Shaun 05-04-2013 09:13 PM

Suspending him would hurt the Bruins because he is an awful player who is constantly out of position.

yakfish 05-04-2013 09:13 PM

Leafs fan here. saw the hit and questioned it myself right away. I never saw a slow mo replay, but at full speed I have to say it looked like a hit to the head to me.

doubleminor138 05-04-2013 09:13 PM

Alright. Do this here. Fixed thread title.

Chieftans22* 05-04-2013 09:14 PM

Anyone got a YT?

SPLBRUIN 05-04-2013 09:16 PM

CBC didn't want to get one of their Leaf players suspended, thus the lack of replays, no other explanation.

It's pretty cut and dry if you watch a slo-mo.

blueNwhite89 05-04-2013 09:17 PM

Leaf fan here. Obviously I don't want him suspended, but can't complain if he is.

Can you post it?

RedeyeRocketeer 05-04-2013 09:17 PM

CBC did no replay of it. There's zero talk in media.

LyndonByers 05-04-2013 09:17 PM

It looked pretty high to me. The most frustrating part was it appeared the CBC didn't want to show it from different angles when they showed the Ference hit over and over.

CamFan81 05-04-2013 09:18 PM

i dont want suspensions i want retribution.

However.
Fair is fair if you suspend ference u do the same to phagoof

Yes. You wanna know why? I'm not a ridiculous biased moronic fan who will blindly lie about it like most fans.

Hell, I'm not even saying its a clean hit at all. I'm saying, WAIT!

RedeyeRocketeer 05-04-2013 09:23 PM

We so need someone with PVR to record this thing and put it up...

missingchicklet 05-04-2013 09:23 PM

CBC did show one replay, but it wasn't a closeup. I looked at it several times on the DVR and it was obviously an illegal hit to the head. Anyone who says it wasn't needs to explain how a man's nose gets cut and starts bleeding out of the blue. Shanny's wheel of justice is indeed unpredictable, but at least one game is warranted in this case, maybe more.

GarbageGoal 05-04-2013 09:25 PM

Honestly surprised the NESN clip wasn't up quickly.
