Game should have been forfeited. I know rule says you have to start with 5 and nothing about finishing with 5. However if a brawl is so bad that all but 3 are tossed the game should have been forfeited for lack of control
from what I gather, most of the players thrown out were players who came off the bench and involved themselves..those guys got the heave ho immediately.
a review of the tape will revealed the others involved. the refs just missed stuff. all but two players on gaffneys team will be suspended eventually..shaq wasn't one of those two..
