SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

The closest situation I found, the 74-75 ABA finals saw the Kentucky Colonels beating the Indiana Pacers. Two years later the Pacers finished 9th out of 11 in their conference and the Colonels no longer existed.

Man City Banned from Champions League for Financial Breaches

So the closest American sports equivalent is probably the Joe Smith Timberwolves scandal. The Timberwolves lost 5 (!) first round picks (which was later reduced to four) for circumventing salary cap rules. I didn't remember that punishment being so harsh. Still, being barred from Champions League play seems like an extreme punishment to me. Not that I'm sad about it, I really can't stand Man City.

Man City Banned from Champions League for Financial Breaches

But why would they do that? What makes that important?

Man City Banned from Champions League for Financial Breaches

and according to UEFA City overstated sponsorship revenue in accounts submitted between 2012 and 2016.

I don't understand what makes this a two year ban. Can someone explain the why of this?
