It sure seems odd that the announcement is taking so long....
It has been my understanding that the player presents his case and is pronounced "guilty" (automatic 4-game suspension) OR "not guilty" (no suspension).
Since no verdict has been announced yet, does that mean they are they still deliberating on something? Maybe, for some reason, they are considering an alternate
outcome (e.g. reduced suspension)?
Maybe they have made their decision but they are just on Christmas vacation
