Jingle I think its poor English - you cant have "either" for more than two.

But it is vague - not that I find that surprising - mind the more I read it the more I lean to Seffas view of a one event ban rather than 3.

Why cant these people write English?

Just found a different source which reads it as one event ban "if"

That's too lenient imo

So I think its sorry Seffa winkeye

I think the punishment level was reasonable. However I would have preferred 50% of the prize money + a ban at the next US Open. Then done and move on rather than suspended sentence.
