Wherefore art thou, Justice???

It’s very hard to figure out what kind of punishment the CSAC is handing out because half the time they don’t seem to know themselves. We initially said that Chael Sonnen’s ‘indefinite’ suspension would only last til the end of June, because that’s what reporter Josh Gross said and he’s typically correct about that kinda stuff.

But the general understanding from the CSAC following their meeting was that Chael would be suspended for at least a year before being allowed to try and get his license back. After a day of reflection and analysis, guess who turned out to be right? If you guessed ‘Not the CSAC’, then you get a cookie. Here’s a chunk of their correctional press release:

Upon reviewing the May 18, 2011 decision of the Commission, an error in the applicability of Rule 399 was made.

Given that Mr. Sonnen’s license will expire on June 29, 2011, the suspension imposed upon the license will be extinguished by operation of law. Therefore, Mr. Sonnen may reapply for a license at any time following that date. He will, however, be required to appear at a Commission meeting to have his application considered. If the Commission denies his application, Mr. Sonnen will have to wait one year from the date of the denial.

So he went from being indefinitely suspended with no chance of fighting for at least a year to being clear in just over a month. Call me crazy, but I figured blatantly lying to a commission about another commission as to why he was caught doing steroids was the kind of thing that deserved a year’s worth of sitting on the couch in your underwear thinking about what a dumbass you are. But I guess not.

    Technically, in June he gets to apply for the CSAC to CONSIDER giving him his license back.  There is no reason they need to approve his license, which could potnetially make this indefinite.

    And would be the dumbest thing in the universe. Chael needs to be back in that octagon.

  • Redping

    he is the only legitamite contender at middleweight EVER, I don’t care about this real estate bullshit anymore and whether he lied to Kizer, SOMEBODY needs to maul bisping and they don’t seem to be doing the ‘bisping vs pahlhares’ match up i keep rooting for

  • iamphoenix

    stop being bitches let him fight get submitted again it’s funny as fuck!!

  • fishead

    I’m gonna sound like a hater, but I hope this lying, cheating, fraudulent, dishonest, corporate shill douchebag stays suspended indefinitely.

  • Billytk

    ^^ wow Anderson I didn’t know you posted here

  • fishead

    whatever… I though Sonnen was a douche in that IFC tournament (where he got caught in a triangle by Forrest Griffin)… and it was reinforced when he pulled his bullshit “I didn’t tap” in the WEC… my opinion was firmly in place before he even entered the UFC – and those brown-nosing videos, real-estate fraud charges, and getting caught ‘roiding (and then lying and making excuses about it) only strengthened that opinion.

    Maybe he’s got a better shot than most at dethroning Silva, but he’s also a hella boring takedown/lay&pray artist… and I’m tired of watching those kinds of fights. It’s like someone inflated Sherk’s body up two weight classes and made his ego exponentially bigger.

    Sports fans would forgive their mothers rapist if it meant their fave pro athelete could play again. Its the irl version of Big Fan lol. Let the lying, scheaming politician serve his punishment.

     

    I am all for second chances but Sonnen is truly incorriblible, the motherfucker is a quote machine but lets get real here he has the same skill set as Mark Coleman ffs. Do the crime do the time, I can give a fuck about how good of an athelete you are.

    What other profession grants a person leniency in the courtroom in the publics eye other than sports?

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    None of you cats gave a shit about Chael when he was cheating in the WEC, now he HAS to be back in the Octagon?

    He’s a cheater who unnecessarily risks the lives of others with his behavior.  There’s no need for him in any squared circle ever again. 

  • CAP

    His 15 minutes are over. He was never that good anyway. If Anderson was healthy he’d be a footnote.

  • Billytk

    LOL @ people still trying to make excuses for Anderson, IF he had actually been injured he wouldn’t have taken the fight Anderson is not the type that takes fights he not sure of. The truth is if Sonnen had gotten the immediate rematch like the original plan was we’d have a new MW Champ right now.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Anderson is not the type that takes fights he not sure of

    So he didn’t kill his momentum repeatedly because he took easy fights that made him look good?  Are you an understudy for that Marika woman?

  • Reverend Clint

    He’s a cheater who unnecessarily risks the lives of others with his behavior.

    huh? Is the dude taking horse roids and is built like Pudz? does he inject others with AIDS or what ever Faildors bro has? Did his shady business dealing kill anyone? Does complaing about shit refs and half retarded officials effect anything?

    NO

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Wait, so horse roids are the only way to artificially enhance your ability to do damage to someone’s brain tissue instead of having the strength of a “93-year-old” man?  Being as strong as Pudz?  Reeally Clint?  So it’s only a gunshot if you’re shot by a tank?  A 12-guage doesn’t count?  Hahaha.

  • Reverend Clint

    id dont see him causeing any more damage because he took some testosterone for his baby balls.

  • CAP

    He’s only damaging his nads…and credibility.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Just because you like white guys laying on you doesn’t mean it’s not hurtful to others, Clint.

  • Reverend Clint

    i prefer mexicans… they smell spicy

  • G Funk

    spicy horrendous
