I don't know...I was just thinking that one spur of the moment shot on a referee wasn't worth six years, much less a lifetime ban. I don't know about the state of the ref, looks like he popped up quickly.
If this was the second time he had struck a ref, I'd ban him for life. First time, though, I'm not sure. I was thinking a year or two and a heavy fine.
Or perhaps he should get arrested and charge with an assault. Do the time, there's your punishment. I don't know, just thinking out loud.
This is probably why I'm not the commissioner of any sport.
