In this day and age with Shanaban its a message you don't want sent. The trouble is a 2 game suspension for Hall greases the pole for a 5 game, then a 10 or 20 game suspension down the road. If anything is established the players that Shanaban does identify as trouble end up with subsequent suspensions while those he thinks "are fine young lads" end up with nothing again and again.

Anybody questioning whether Shanaban plays his little favorites or not should look at the case of Rinaldo last year. Gets 2 games for a vicious hit in which he obviously jumped in the air. This only 5 days after Rinaldo engaging in two infractions in a previous game for which he served no suspension.

This being Zac Rinaldo. A puke that you could count his infractions in virtually any game played.

Taylor Hall recieves the same suspension as Zac Rinaldo.

Is there a dirtier player in the league than Zac Rinaldo?

Anything wrong here?
