I just don't think this is fair at all.
That is the email for the executive officer of the CSAC. I'm emailing my displeasure now.
This is my letter
He says the right things to make himself look likea good guy, but I really dont trust him.
I just don't know what he can say that will make me feel better about this situation besides "we extended Toney's sentence to a full year" or "we cut Franca's suspension to 180 days"
I would be interested to hear the response as well. I don't think either fighter should have received a reduced sentence but if they were going to go easy on one of the two you would think the honest apologetic person would get the nod. Clearly a case of preferential treatment.
1 year is way harsh for a first timer like hermes, but it was a title fight.high risk, high return he obviously thought.
The csac totally needs to revamp their system on both drugs and banned performance enhancing substances.
Increase the piddly fines.
Increase penalties as you repeat offend.
Allow a community service reduction.
For a title fight/main event yes, 1 year is proper, because you are the prime representative of the sport on that particular day.
Hope you spell checked before you sent that, but otherwise right on. Firm, but respectful.
Two different approaches to the same thing Francas approach didnt work Toneys did.
I hope you seriously dont think it was a fair, unbaised decision
pretty bullshit decision.
Its definately not unbiased none of these commitees will ever be but theres alot more to the story then Boxer getting off light and MMA guy not.
Franca admitted to it he should wear the fine/suspension there should be no exceptions. He along with the many others who have got caught should be dealt with as harshly as possible if MMA is ever going to be seen as a clean sport.
Toney denied the charges maybe he argued his defence better then reported.
I just got back a form letter that told me to please read the athletic commision code and provided me with some links.
I doubt he ever even read it.
