Unofficial Community Vote: Gecko Punishment

Post by TeeKay » Sun Jan 08, 2017 5:55 pm

Warning: this vote has no affect on the decision, but at least can send a message to the LMs and possibly even commissioner about what the community thinks one way or the other on the Gecko punishment.

Short recap of events:
1) Probe team didn't have enough players
2) Gecko changes name to Slaton, saying he is him, smurfing as Slaton
3) Blitz approaches Gecko, Gecko confesses, then says BuddyBob (who the eff?) made him do it.
4) Blitz calls for vote between LMs
5) Blitz and LMs ban Gecko for at least 1 season (possibly longer)
(also warning: I don't watch Saturday games, so these events are 2nd hand, thus small details may be slightly off but overall scenario is accurate).

Full recap:
http://www.zealothockey.net/forum/viewt ... =35&t=2285


My issue:
The lowest punishment on that vote was 1 season. Why wasn't anything shorter than 1 season considered, when the longest punishment for a smurf was half a season, and that was a premeditated, preseason, included-in-the-draft smurfing. Other smurfs have received 0-2 games suspension.


Please vote (no poll since people can make multiple users, "smurf voters" if you will) and if you want to give any reasoning. This will have no direct bearing on any decision and is not official in any way. If someone wants they can make a thread about Buddybob, but I honestly have no idea who that is and think its probably a smurf.


Your Options:
Option 1: No punishment to Gecko, team forfeits game as they would have lost without Gecko in all likelihood
Option 2: 1-2 Game Suspension
Option 3: ~1/4 season (3-4 games) Suspension
Option 4: ~1/2 season (6-10 Game) Suspension
Option 5: Full Season Suspension
Option 6: Multiple Season Suspension WITH possible reinstatement next season
Option 7: Multiple Season Suspension WITHOUT possible reinstatement next season

Edit: added option 4 and pushed the rest down a number

I vote option 3. It was dumb of Gecko to do and he deserves to be punished for it, regardless of previous offenders in this exact circumstance getting off extremely easy. But to ban him for longer is plain foolish, IMO.
