to spite your face is an old cliche, but isn't that an exact description and result of actions taken against Bradshaw for missing curfew, keeping him out of the game, a very important game.
Discipline must be maintained and rules followed, but I believe that keeping a major player out of an important game like last nights has a negative impact on the entire team and the coaches who need wins to stay employed. It's the same as penalizing the entire team and fans because of one misfit???
What other kind of penalty, other than a huge fine, should Coughlin or other HC's employ other than "sit-a-star?"
