    personally i would have given them a caution, or AT MOST a prize penalty.

    No it was McLaren in Formula 1.

    McLaren lost all their championship owner points. They had a 160 point lead on the rest of the teams.

    So Fernando Alonso goes from points leader to out of a job.

    Haven't you heard the old saying?

    "Cheaters never prosper, and they get fined $100 Mill"

    Basically, $100,000,000 is the kiss of death...The league's way of saying that they have zero tolerance for crookedness!

    Yes and that F1 is the most respected racing organization around the world and they want to make a statement that you cannot cheat in F1.

    A $100 mil punishment I like...depsite all the promotions they get paid and such, $100 mil will dent them, unlike that $500k punishment for that cheating Patriots coach and $250k for his team.

    Is it fair that Pokemon got sued $100m for making a poke look like a nazi? No, it wasn't. But, if these people are truly bad, unlike Pokemon, they deserve it.

    huh? what are you talking about?

    anyone can sue for damages; winning one's case and being awarded $ is quite another...

    Only an idiot confuses a manji with a swastika. They don't even look remotely similar. A manji is flat on its side and the "arms" go in the opposite direction.

    It wasn't harsh enough. DON'T CHEAT. Pokemon should have fines like that for stalling.
