It's possible that he views it that way but I don't see that favoring Torres in this instance. Stoll's posture was low at the time Torres commits to it. That means he's going after a vulnerable player and the slow rise from Stoll as Torres is incoming doesn't mean much of anything here. I think the league sees it is Torres, sees that he commits when Stoll is low so he's going after a vulnerable player, he hits the head from the blindside, and are preparing to throw the book at him.
