Is there a vid out yet we can see. Im not fond of coming to a conclusion unless I see it myself. Some have said the refs said so and thats good for them....but arent they the same refs whole get dragged over the coals here every game for being blind etc? Sure Walby and the gang said the same, but there is no way I just blindly take someones word. Im a gotta see it kind of person. I know this forum is full of people who will assume the worst just because they want to and thats sad.
All that being said, I figure he probably did do the crime and thats a pretty crappy thing to do. If the allegations are true, and his intent was malicious, he probably does deserve more of a suspension.
Last thing, the league has a policy in place that all players can use to appeal stuff like this. It is their right to do so as laid out by the league rules and regulations. Some have said it is classless to appeal, but I ask you how many professional athletes wouldnt play if they could in a big game? Sure Rasoulli opted to accept his punishment, but it was just a regular season game. I dunno what to say more about this. Maybe the league should change their policy (obviously have to make a deal with the players union first) and speed up handing out fines/suspensions and have only certain infractions worthy of an appeal. Its kind of a crappy situation all around.
