"Jones was suspended for hitting St. F.X. defensive lineman Yahia Dalloul in a 41-7 Huskies win on Oct. 23 at Huskies Stadium.In other words the three-game suspension did not stem from the act itself. It drew on the warning Jones had received during the Saint Mary's-McGill game.
"AUS executive director Phil Currie said Tuesday that the three-member panel supported the contention that Jones’s action constituted a deliberate attempt to injure. But they didn’t support the premise that Jones deserved a third game because he had received a warning for aggressive play in a game earlier this season in Quebec."
