Life ban lifted
TREMAINE SHAW won’t be serving life anymore.
Just 13 months after receiving a lifetime ban for his role in last year’s infamous brawl, the talented local basketballer will now be eligible to return for the 2015 season after having his sanction effectively reduced to a two-and-a-half-year suspension.
An inside source of the Barbados Amateur Basketball Association’s executive confirmed the council’s decision to slash Shaw’s sentence following an earlier appeal from Shaw’s lawyer and Warriors’ club representatives.
“You can see he’s been very repentant of what has happened and is eager to make amends for his role in the brawl,” said the source.
“He went to the council in a conciliatory manner and explained some of the issues he had, so I believe the council is genuinely ready to give him a second chance.”
