2- Getting long shifts IS being selfish. It's not thinking about the team which he can put in delicate situations as a result since after 1 min. most players are starting to be very tired. We've seen Ribs do 1 min to 2 min. shifts more than once out there and as we've learned more about this situation, it seems Julien has been on his back for that problem more than once and he didn't respond (as his last shift against Florida proved).
CAUSE -> CONSEQUENCE
YOU DON'T WANT TO PLAY LIKE YOU'RE TOLD -> YOU'RE BENCHED
Nothing wrong with that. Ribeiro is a smart guy. I'm pretty sure he'll get the message and make sure he doesn't float around for 2 minutes and create turnovers as a result. If anything this is the kind of things that will make of guys like Ribeiro better and more responsible players in a few years.
he's not a selfish , he's only a good playmaker that sometime forget , in the action , to let the play to return to the bench .That's also show his desire to play , no ?
Sure that Julien may be havd to punish him , but a simple part of a game would have been enought for him to get the message
