Yeah.

Topper's making lots of good points, but it almost seems a bit pointless. Atleast in my opinion.

Shanahan and Bettman barely even hide the fact that there are massive shades of grey involved even if they ultimately wanted things in black and white.

I've been laughing my ass off at his "explanatory" videos!

Phil Kessel was suspended for slashing John Scott in a Leaves/Sabres preseason game.

Shanahan

... with a straight face mind you...

said Kessel's behavior in the previous Leaves/Flyers preseason game was a factor in his decision.

That's some EXTREMELY funny shit right there!!

LOL.

It's kind if sad to see Shanny like this.

I absolutely loved the guy when he was a Red Wing during their late 90 glory days, but he's just making an ass out of himself now.

Far from it, but when you and Clam are crying on each other's shoulders about your failures to understand, there are some clearly defined, though broad guidelines.

I merely point out when your crying steps outside those guidelines.

Shanahan the media whore's vids do little to justify how he derived at his decision. On the other hand, Gary's appeal rulings clearly define the decision process.

Unfortunately there has only been two to date, but they do highlight the thought process and weighting factors used by Shanahan and can clear up many of the issues people have with Shanahan the media whores ruling. There are some however, that remain baffling.

I'm getting the feeling Doc misses Rolf Harris

Those are actually tears of... laughter... you chump!

I think it's obvious to everyone but YOU that yours truly understands the so-called "guidelines" all too well.

The difference between yourself and yours truly is that YOU can`t handle the fact Shanny & Co are a joke.

Oh it`s damn true. :mex:

I'm getting the feeling Topper would frown and shrug his way through a Marx Brothers marathon.

So sometimes, there are some legit black and white issues that can be logically explained fairly clearly by Bettman.

Fair enough.

On that note, it will be interesting to see if even these seemingly set-in-stone "black and white" principles/rules are broken and are contradicted one day.

Edit - this was meant to be a response to Topper's post.

Doc would like things to be black and white.

However the CBA, which Doc continues to advertise his inability to read, recognizes each incident is unique.

I'm not sure if Doc wants things in black and white, more than he just wants to see more consistency. Atleast that's what I gather from his posts. Even in unique incidences, there will be massive similarities to other past incidences to which can serve as a foundation for comparable punishments.

Obviously, in a perfect Hindu world, things would be black and white as far player safety rulings are concerned, but it's an unrealistic expectation.

What drives me nuts a lot of the time, is how star players (I.e. Weber) are given way more slack. That head bash on Zettrberg for instance.........if Sestito would have done that, that would been have been atleast 5 games.......15 games if Zetterberg had been seriously injured.

Given how much discrepancy there are in rulings (even though each incident is unique), I think that's why so many people find it laughable whenever Bettman and company try to make sense and logic out of the rulings (even in those rare instances where something written in the CBA matches an incident 1:1).

I dunno.

... as Topper yet again advertises his inability to write! :lol:

And ummmm "each incident is unique" = kangaroo-speak for "we don't know what the fuck we're doing".

Precisely why I started calling him a media whore. Butt then, you can't read.

So this is the root of your angst.

You go back to the black and white RCA in your parents living room when a two hander to ankles made National Heros, and you wonder why Shanahan could have even have suspended Kessel in light of the precedent 41 years earlier.

In your black and white world you are upset that Kessel is not on the pedal stool (lol) as your beloved Bobby Clarke.

After all you do not believe in unique incidents.
