Suspension Handed Out

It took a while but for those continuing to ask or inquire your wait is finally “officially” over according to the PJHL.

While many are pinpointing that this falls completely on the shoulders of the young player, if you were at the game you would have watched several factors that sadly led up to this situation.

Yes – it’s true that all players have to be held accountable but many or some fail to consider what led up to this as well as what has transpired following this situation.

Throughout this entire process some who attended games were making negative comments either directed at or in his direction.

While his actions were clearly in the “heat of the moment” anyone who has been involved in a “fight” situation knows that tempers flare and one wrong word can ignite a spark.

Here’s hoping that situations such as this never happen again, but what am I thinking cause we all know that according to some “Fighting is a part of the game”.

According to the league this is completed and here’s hoping that there is no legal problems that arise from either party.

You make the call – RIGHT OR NOT!!

Enjoy the read from the PJHL
