    Honestly the journalists who write these articles should be blacklisted for their trolltastic headlines.

    "Suspended for 6 months unless cleared by a doctor" is not the same thing as "suspended for 6 months."

    An indefinite term that can end IMMEDIATELY by doctor clearance is not an indefinite term.
