UW football suspension stands

The University of Waterloo has announced that it will not reverse its controversial decision to suspend the upcoming men’s football season.

Yesterday, the Warriors gave university administration 24 hours to make progress on reversing the suspension, or a majority of players would transfer to different schools.

The team was given an eight-game suspension earlier this week, after nine of the team’s 62 players tested positive for steroid use.

Roughly half of the Warrior’s current roster intends to transfer to different schools in order to play in the upcoming season.
