The point is, when you do something wrong/hateful and haven't taken steps to apologize, show remorse, you don't deserve a second chance until these things are done.
It's the very basics of getting a second chance.
But he did apologize, he did cultural sensitivity training, he did counseling, he did volunteer with disabled groups.
And yet, people want him permanently banned from hockey.
For something he did when he was 14-years old.
He did do it when he was 11 & 8, & 9 & 10 & 12 &13. He doesn't deserve a 2nd chance after showing 0 remorse for it until it only benefit him, and then he did it in a half assed way
Again, "not remorseful enough", is a scary open-ended charge.
1. Person does bad thing
2. Person gets punishment for bad thing.
3. Person completes punishment for bad thing.
...is how our system is set up.
Adding a layer for the judgement of of one character is totally against our system. And in this case, its not even his current character than is being judged, its his character in the period after he was caught. (We have seen it doesn't matter what he does now). It becomes a slippery slope...
Player W bullied kids on his bus in 4th grade, never did anything to make amends.
Player X got in a fight in 3rd grade, never apologized.
Player Y stole money in 5th grade, never returned it.
Player Z used derogatory slurs in 6th grade, never showed remorse.
Ban 'em all?
