It's way more frustrating to lose because your team is bad and ur doing good, when ur a pro player and ur used to playing with good people its probably even worse. Riot just crippled one of its top NA teams just because of some chat in solo que and possibly someones career. I thought we have mute for a reason.
Bad sportsmanship gets players fined constantly in sports, bad behavior also gets sponsor deals revoked for celebrities also.
True, one year is a long time, but you have to remember that esport is not as established as other potential comparison and that Riot is literally throwing money at the e-sport scene trying to get:
1]LoL recognized as a top e-sport
2]E-sport actually taken seriously.

They are simply trying to contain all the 100"s of incoming posts on the subject in this thread.
