"but to sit me a game had me hot, so I left. I was suspended way before I left. I left bc I felt what he said was BS."
We will have to wait and see if he does indeed return and is reinstated.
McAdoo was asked several followup questions - what was the conversation about? How long is the suspension - but referred back to his initial statement.
