Sport: Hockey
Punishment: 30-game suspension

Chris Simon was yet again at the center of controversy after an altercation on the ice that didn't even involve him. Simon's teammate Tim Jackman got into it with notorious agitator Jarkko Ruutu, and Simon decided to insert himself into the argument the only way he knew how: he first yanked Ruutu's leg out from behind, causing him to fall to his knees, then promptly stomped on Ruutu's right leg with his skate. Unfortunately, he did this right in front of the referees, and he was thrown out of the game. The subsequent 30-game suspension he received is the second-longest in NHL history for an on-ice incident.
