I wouldn't label the Ballard situation as a case of AV playing favourites. Bieksa's right to look disinterested and commit multiple turnovers in a game without being subjected to the treatment Ballard gets for doing as much is an example of playing favourites, and yes, every coach does that. But sitting Ballard over Barker and Alberts, imo, has nothing to do with the latter two and everything to do with the player he just doesn't want on the team.
