TULSA - The Arena Football League has issued suspensions to Orlando’s Bobby Sippio and Julius Wilson for their involvement in an altercation with fans in Saturday night’s game. From the commissioner:

“The AFL apologizes to their fans for the regretful and unacceptable actions of two (2) of its players during a game this past Saturday.

It is not acceptable for our players to enter the stands at anytime during a game, no matter the circumstances.

After a thorough review of all of the attending circumstances, the appropriate discipline was imposed by the AFL Commissioner as follows:

• Julius Wilson-a six (6) game suspension, requirement for an application to be filed with the league office for reinstatement and a monetary fine.
• Bobby Sippio, a one (1) game suspension and a monetary fine.

All players enter into a league contract and the provisions of that contract control the imposition of discipline, a player’s right to appeal such discipline and the procedures of such an appeal.

Both of these players disciplined have invoked their rights under their league contract to appeal the discipline imposed by the AFL Commissioner. The discipline imposed on Julius Wilson will be effective immediately and the discipline imposed on Bobby Sippio will be imposed at the completion of his appeal.”

The Predators are set to visit Jacksonville on Saturday for the first round of the playoffs.
