you would have to think now that tom wilson likely would get his suspension reduced since its gonna be hard to argue why he gets suspended more then a guy with domestic violence
Right on. Love Austin Watson. Hopefully he puts this mess behind him and comes back better than ever.
Interesting. Re reading some articles about the case. There was very minimal abuse present at the time(red chest, being pushed). Also had a bleeding knee but that may or may no be related. Seems the arbitrator agrees.
BUT I feel like more was going behind the scenes to warrant such a suspension in the first place and the case. But seems Watson's wife doesn't want him to get into anymore trouble.
Ummm... not really comparable.
I still know which one caused more brain damage
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the suspension length must be divisible by 9. Personally, I support 36 games.
I think in these political times they should have just kept the original suspension instead of bringing more attention to yet another case of a woman being abused by a man, and now, getting a lighter sentence.
Lmao what the hell are we even doing if we’re not taking domestic abuse seriously
That's the reason the player has the right to an independent arbiter.... so they wont be punished based on the politics of the moment
This is a great look for the NHL. Good work guys.
I would say a guy losing a third of his salary is pretty serious...
I wasn't aware that domestic violence was a political issue. That tells you all you need to know about society.
If it was 45 games reduced to 36 there would be people complaining that the nhl endorses domestic abuse.
Initial punishment was too severe
The poster he replied to insinuated that it's dangerous to reduce his punishment in this political climate, which is probably true but shouldn't be
Yet Voynov can't even join a team after being suspended for an eternity.
Dont. Voynov is satan
Not a good look for the nhl at all.
And Watson is a Saint.
Hes satan too
Unbelievable. Sportsnet brought up this point:
Tom Wilson 20 games for pre season hit
Watson 18 games for domestic violence
Separate names with a comma.
