Tyson's reaction was obviously worthy of punishment, but it was also something that occurred in the ring because he felt Holyfield was intentionally headbutting him. Chael's case is different because he is being perceived as having lied to the commission and him having outside legal troubles that are making headlines doesn't help his image.
It's like the CSAC is having a "redo". They should have made a decision about his lying the first time around. To me it's like someone who's been tried, found guilty, been punished and served his time, but now the prosecuter wants to go back and give him more time for something that should have been included in their case the first go round.

I think they feel like Chael made them look stupid and incompetent and they're getting payback now.

Yup double jeopardy.. They were trying to make an example out of Chael... Instead it backfired on them dummies.

This is what happens when you decide to criticise fellow professionals without any regard,

I like Chael but you can find when you are that outspoken and critical you may find that when you need friends they are not about.
