The Marvin suspension...the saga continues

I was directed to Bruce Ciskie's blog today because he has some interesting information on the Aaron Marvin suspension.

Bruce McLeod seems hesitant to hand out suspensions for anything outside of the rule book. If it's not in the rules, he doesn't want to suspend players. This is a poor way of being a league commissioner. It's very black and white. 16 years and he's never handed out more than a one game suspension. That's unacceptable. I can think of many incidents that should have been more then one game, but that's a story for another day.

Anyway, the story goes that the league was going to suspend Marvin for about 8 games, but due to appeal from St. Cloud, it got reduced to 3. Fair? You decide.

i actually wish mcleod would follow the book closer. seems like he just willie nillie decides to hand down punishment to one player for an offense while letting another player go free for the same offense.
