Double standards?

September 24, 2013

Dear Sir,

What is the difference between the rude and disrespectful behaviour of Tredwell Gibbons at Cup Math, which was conducted in front of the world and the behaviour of Curtis Jackson last Sunday at Bailey's Bay.

If Curtis Jackson can be banned for 12 matches, why was Tredwell Gibbons not banned for an extensive period of time too?

There are too many rules and no consistency with punishment. Tredwell's punishment was too lenient. This punishment sends the wrong message, there is one rule for one person and other rules for other people, where is the consistency here?
