They went too easy on them. An irreversible lifetime ban for all involved and suspension of the entire team for 2 or 3 years would have been far better.

I have my suspicions that all will soon be forgiven. Back around 1980 Paolo Rossi was supposedly banned for life but was forgiven just in time for the 1982 World Cup. It wouldn't surprise me to see everything conveniently forgiven real soon.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

I think they're lucky they weren't completely thrown out of all the leagues
