Biggest suspension I can remember.

Would it had been the same for an player in the middle of a 2-year contract, fully expected to return?
Doesn't matter now, the next one will have to be the same.

A player in the middle of a contract would have presumably turned up to the hearing, offered an explanation for his actions and apologised to the ref - all of which would have led to a much shorter punishment.

Of course, a player who intended to play in the NBL again would probably have never committed the act in the first place.

It was so feeble, too. He obviously tried to sneak it. Just grow up and do a Ray Owes.

Too harsh. The guy just had a season in China before he came to Cairns. Over in China, they always throw the ball at the ref who is making one-sided calls in favour of the home team.

Suspension reduced on appeal...

Won't be back - even with the reduction, who would have an import that can't play for 10 games?

Changes nothing for Cairns or Mitchell himself.

We won't see him again because he is too inconsistent with this shots and too hot headed.
