I just wanted to make a few brief
follow-up points regarding the article yesterday.
1) Most of the circumstances
regarding Cedric's bribe attempt came from a direct
verbatim account from Cedric after he was
disqualified. As a result of this, and upon further
reviewing my article, I think the article was a bit
biased against his opponent, John Hammond.
To John and those involved, I am
deeply sorry about implying that you were at fault
whatsoever in this situation. From the way this
article was written, it might be implied that John
did something wrong.
2) After Cedric sold his stuff and
walked around the floor talking about his "banning,"
it was rather easy to mistakenly assume he was
banned from future events instead of simply
disqualified from the event. While he may indeed
later be placed on the suspended player's list, that
will be Upper Deck's decision completely.
Both he and I mistakenly assumed his
disqualification automatically equaled a banning.
Seeing as how he is not yet on the suspended
player's list, the error was mine.
Thanks to those who have clarified
these points, and once again congratulations to
Legion Events and Upper Deck for a fantastically run
Shonen Jump Championship.
