IMO, the "frustration factor" in Shannahan's decision tells it all. He is punished for yelling at the ref for missing calls and then taking the law in his own hands. I do not think that the league had any other choice at that point.

It was a knucklehead penalty and deserved suspension.

Agree with the rest of the group that Shannahan's incosistency is mind boggling, though
