After being poked on the bunghole by Dr. Broom, the McGill Redmen now got their asses kicked by the Federation du sport Ã©tudiant du QuÃ©bec (the association regulating scholar sports in Quebec).
The Redmen have been sanctioned by the FSEQ for cancelling the last two games of the 2005 season, which had an obvious impact on other teams’. So now:
- McGill must pay a 30 000$ fine.
- The Redmen can’t get any of their home games on TV for the next two seasons.
- For the time of its probation, McGill can’t get a home playoff game. Should they finish first or second, they will visit the 4th or 3rd place team.
- If they make the playoffs in 2006 or 2007, they won’t get their share of money from broadcast rights.
- And if they break just one tiny FSEQ rule in the next two seasons, they are officially banned of the CIS.
In its press release, the FSEQ however said that they congratulate McGill for making the students’ wellbeing a priority over continuing the last football season.
What do you say? Too harsh? Just ok? Not enough?
