- April 7, 2014
THE RULING HATH COMMENCED! It has been delivered from atop Mt. Shanahan. Four games, or the rest of the regular season for Zac Rinaldo. The key points to the suspension? Illegal hit, injury and Rinaldo’s history. – SHIELD –
The official explanation is after the jump.
Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
Deserves it. It wasn’t a good play at all. You can’t leave your skates and throw and elbow at a guys head. Kind of surprised he didn’t get more based on reputation.
After the “jump” heh I get it
If this were James Neal, he’d be looking at two games max.
If this was Cindy Crosby, Gary Bettman would’ve made sure his precious Penguins didn’t suffer any sort of punishment.
Yes, by all means blame the league and the officials for your team’s shortcomings!
Yes, by all means not realize when someone is satirizing a typical hockey fan.
#airhead penguins fan that trolls a philly blog and is too brain dead to realize when someone is making a joke
Every game Rinaldo doesn’t play, the roster is stronger.
Please, Shanahan, suspend him for the playoffs, too.
Because you know he’s gonna do it again, and will until he really hurts somebody.
Rinaldo is literally the MVP on the Flyers.
Just look at his lifetime stats – when he plays, the Flyers’ win percentage is significantly higher than when he doesn’t play. This was mentioned on another Flyer’s blog.
No other person on the Flyers can claim this. No one.
No talent pussy anyway. Addition by subtraction in my book
Dude why the hell do you insist on saying after the jump with every post you write is it supposed to be “cool”.. Why every fucking post every fuking time.. Video after the jump.. Then the video is less than a millimeter down from that gay sentence or whatever… Please someone explain it
It just means there is more to the excerpt above.
He does it so he gets another page view if you want to watch the video. More page views = more ad revenue. Lots of bloggers do it.
I used to say “after the jump”, too….
Too soon, dude. Too soon.
Jenn Kilroy has some nice cans. Look her up on the Facebook
How come Kacie McDonnell in this bracket?
Oops! Wrong comment section
Too harsh of a suspension.
Neal intentionally kneed a down opponent in the head, 3rd suspension, 7th reviewed play, definitely deserved more, 5 games was the absolute least he could have possibly gotten
Neal got away with his hit on couturier as he claimed it was accidental which was imo worse than this, premeditated, 3 seconds late, and also a jumping blindside headshot like Rinaldos
and literally 10 seconds of game time later he jumped at girouxs head to deliver an elbow, where he only got a 1 game suspension, both within 10 seconds of play right after the flyers went up 7-4 in game 3 to go up 3-0 in the series, if that isnt premeditated intent to injure i dont know what is
and then of course after the Marchand incident he delivers a blindside premeditated cross check to the head of Glendenning which he only got a fine for
and a fun fact, Neal has been called for diving 3 times this year, by rule you are to be suspended 1 game after that 3rd infraction, the NHL elected not to suspend him
So this has what to do with Rinaldo? He should’ve gotten less than 4 games because Neal did worse stuff than him and he only got 5 games? You’re joking right? You sound like my kids.
You sound like a bleeding infected cunt.
Such an intelligent response. You couldn’t possibly be Glen Macnow.
Rinaldo got what he deserved. He’s lucky it wasn’t longer.
But Neal should have received a lengthy suspension by now. No question about that (or there shouldn’t be).
Rinaldo really brings something positive to the Flyers. They are a better team with him.
But that being said, that was a terrible hit. He has got to know better than that.
Glad he owned up to it at least.
Rinaldo looks like the devil. He always makes that same face when hes about to do something really stupid…
