Lausanne national defender Andrea Glauser was fined between 2,000 and 3,000 francs for swallowing in the fifth final. The corresponding application from the “Bird Observatory Sempach” is on the desk of the individual hockey judge. Indeed, he should be punished with a ban.

Almost everyone outside the Lausanne hockey world agrees with this assessment: It was the worst swallow in modern hockey history, especially since it was made in such a high-profile final.

Nationals defenseman Andrea Glauser, who has a chance to earn an NHL contract next season, plays the role of a “dying swan” who is seriously injured after a minor stick hit on his jersey. ZSC striker Derek Grant should go into the penalty area, completely wrong. Even the Swallow King of Football Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior – Neymar for short – would angrily describe Glauser's swallow as an act of acting that does not exist in football.

However, Andrea Glauser did not escape unscathed: the criminal application for a fine was submitted to the single hockey judge. It should be between 2,000 and 3,000 francs.

“Sempach Bird Observatory” decides this

What's interesting is the way this criminal complaint comes about. The “Sempach Hoki Bird Observatory” is responsible for this. The so-called “Sounding Board” was established only this season. This three-member committee, with representatives from the players union, the league (player safety officer) and the umpires department, has only one job: to evaluate the swallows. Hence the name “Sempach Bird Observatory”. Swallows are birds.

If this body finds that it is Sununu, an application will be made to the single judge to impose punishment on him. This is what happened in the “Glauser case.”

Punishment by the hockey gods

It should be said: the swallow is still not punished harshly enough. The fines are very lenient. Stars can pay them out of petty cash or from winnings from Gus' tour. In theory, it would also be possible to ban a player for swallowing. This is the only way to achieve a deterrent effect.

The hockey gods have already punished Andrea Glauser severely: his team was unable to capitalize on the disqualification he provoked when the score was 0-0 on the power play. Instead, he enraged the ZSC Lions and gave the Zurich side a burst of energy that decided the game. ZSC Lions won 3-0 and took a 3-2 lead into the final. They need another win to win the championship. Their first opportunity will be on Saturday evening in Lausanne.
