Rick Mahorn Gets Suspended For "Peacemaking"

The fallout from the most exciting thing to happen in the WNBA's longer-than-expected history is complete. Players suspended for one game included Detroit's Kara Braxton, Tasha Humphrey, Elaine Powell and Sheri Samalong with Los Angeles' Lisa Leslie, Candace Parker and DeLisha Milton-Jones. Two game suspensions were handed down to Shannon Bobbitt and Murriel Page of the Sparks. Detroit Shock forward, Plenette Pierson, considered the instigator of the whole kitten scrum, was given four games. And then there's Shock assistant coach Rick Mahorn, who for his part in the royal bra-snapping rumble was also handed a two-game suspension. Shock head coach Bill Laimbeer is furious over the ruling.

As a team, we're incensed that Rick Mahorn was suspended. He was trying to be a peacemaker and now he's being thrown under the bus.
