What is your opinion about Puerta's case

On tribunal's verdict of Puerta's case today, what's your opinion?

Appreciate reading of the full verdict (somewhat long); if no time at least try to be somewhat knowledgeable about the facts and both side's arguments

Re: What is your opinion about Puerta's case

To be honest with you, I couldn't be bothered with the technical aspects of the argument. The brief was rather lengthy, as would be expected in a "normal" legal document.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: What is your opinion about Puerta's case

The poll choices are too biased. 3 for ban, one for half ban.

Sorry I did not thought this too carefully. I guess ideally I should have put one option to say "This is gross violation of justice; There should be no ban whatsoever given the evidence". But I don't know how to edit the poll (is it editable at all?). Please do let me know of a way to edit it if there is one.

Option one is more than sufficient for the flaming liberals among us.

If this were a fair punishment. The ATP would have no employees.

Re: What is your opinion about Puerta's case

this is not the first time, hes clearly guilty. the verdict is totally appropriate. i'm still pissed off at his semifinal win over Davydenko at Roland Gaross. Davydenko should have played the final match

MTF is not exactly high at intelligence but fortunately the 1st-option-:retard:s are in minority.

Re: What is your opinion about Puerta's case

I think he got punished too harshly. It was only a trace amount in his system. There wasn't enough to sway the results of the match.
