Really? That seems just a little overkill.
Banning the team, many of whom were innocent of any wrongdoing, seems just a little f'ed up to me.
As for banning Flavio, wow, that was an intimidating move. It just seems to me like a group of little kids kicking one of them out of their clubhouse and saying "You're never ever allowed to comeback here ever again in the history of ever!" (actual quote I heard as a kid, by the way). What a bunch of whiny little sissies.
Now Flavio gets to go home and sleep with a supermodel.
In the end, he still wins.
