What happens in most jobs if someone's a dick? They usually get fired and the majority of companies will fire you for any little offense.
I find it hypocritical of Riot to claim to be trying to remove toxicity and promote good behavior, yet they let their "pros" get away with all kinds of ****. If anything the pros should have stricter punishments and have higher standards because they are afterall the "pros" of this game and thus if people who have never seen or heard of LoL before, watch these pros play and see all kinds of toxic behavior go unpunished, then what will they think of the common masses?
Once again it comes down to you get away with anything so long as you have money and/or influence.
I also hate his negative behaviour but you should also take into consideration that as a pro, it's his main only source of income. In most jobs, what he did would be viewed as insignificant and he would only have been reprimanded by his superior. Not allowing him to compete is like suspending someone for a year. As a pro gamer, he had to sacrifice many career options to be able to stick to LoL. This is much. Also, trying to find job opportunities in other fields will be tough, given that he doesn't have enough qualifications because he chose to devote his time to LoL instead of further studies. I am no a fan of his and I hope that nobody follows his habits. However, as a human being, I feel that it is important to show some compassion and understanding, even though the party concerned may not seem to be worthy of those.
Edit: Maybe I was not clear enough. I despise the attitude of this Summoner's attitude towards other players. He has no right to insult other members of his team for mistakes because they play the game casually( they have a life!). Also his whining and raging shows much immaturity. I'm not trying to play the lawyer but I'm just trying to encourage people to think more deeply about how the consequences are so much greater for pro players( more in the way of a debate). I would request you to share your opinion on the matter.
