The statement didn’t provide details of what Hunter did, but a TSN report alleges Hunter used an anonymous Twitter account to criticize the Edmonton Eskimos, his former team.

The suspension will run until the end of January.

“While we encourage the use of social media channels by all members of our organization, we also strive to make very clear that the use of these channels must be done in a positive manner, respectful of our member clubs and the league as a whole,” the statement read. ”We will have no further comment on the matter.”
