Blizzard has been unilaterally handing out punishments to players guilty of breaking the spirit of Overwatch League. The big problem for many analysts and some former players in OWL is the irregularity in the application of these penalties. Former Dallas Fuel Tank player, XQC summarily states the differences in punishments.
No shade at blizzard, but I think suspending two overwatch league players for a couple games under the pretext of boosting and then banning two amateur players for 1 year sends the wrong message.

We seen esports veteran SirScoots also raise similar concerns about how certain rules are implemented, how the fine amounts are decided. Unless there is a players union, the players don’t really have any leverage in this case.
