    Of course ovi will not get suspended, he only left his feet, went straight for Giradi’s head, and is a repeat offender. It makes perfect sense as to why he would not be suspended.

      Someone else on the boards put it brilliantly – punishments depend on whether Shanny checks the “Ovi treatment” box off, or the “Raffi treatment” one.
