    Thornton Decides Not to Appeal Suspension Further

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=440094


    I'm surprised.  I thought that the union was pushing Thornton to appeal in the first place.  Disgusting that Neal the repeat offender is playing and racking up points while Thornton sits.

    Really surprised by this - I thought the union would have pressured him into an appeal to the arbitrator for sure, in order to test the process.

    You are either all in , or why bother with the first appeal.would have been good for the NHLPA to test the system and see how an independent arbitrator would have ruled.  Oh well..5 more games and the return of ST...can't wait :-)

    Neal kneed a guy in the head as he skated by him.

    Thornton gave Orpik a slew foot and then punched him into a blackout.

    I agree with ST decision. Liked that he appeal/protested the 1st decision and left it at that.

    He did knock a player down, punched him in the face and knocked him unconscious. I thought being his 1st suspension, 15 was harsh but regardless, the NHL is "cracking" down on this stuff.

    If he went to arbitrator, imo, it would suggest that he did nothing wrong. ST did apologize and will now fulfill his punishment.

    End of Story
