It's not black & white.
Just my opinion, but guys like Neal deserve to have whole history considered, regardless of time
Well technically it has since Shanny said it played into his decision. The repeat offender status just allows them to suspend a player for more and more games with each reoccuring incident. This is a message to Neal that something else like this within the next 18 months will land him in the press box for an entire month of the season.
