Disrespect taken. I'll let tafnut explain it to you. I know you are a bit of a newbie.
If you do a search on Blouin, you will note that it was posted a couple of times in response to some things that were on point. As far as posting the matter, check out this post to TC one day after that article was written:
"I know this was all over the news yesterday but now it's on the front page of the Globe. It's the second item on the online edition. They haven't even taken Said-Sief's medal away yet but we're on the case. I can't stop laughing. Get Roman off the record with a few beers and I bet he would be too.
He's in a tough position.
"There's a higher level of vigilance here," Mr. Olszewski said. "It was an inappropriate gesture. There were families with children in the crowd."

And from the Star-careful with this one-there is a picture of the incident. I guess it's ok to put this kind of thing in a national newspaper that has a circulation in the hundreds of thousands. Don't kids look at the paper too?

More from the Star.
"Calgary's Lanny Mann, the gold medallist, was upset the incident reflected poorly on their event in general.
``We're in the headlines for the wrong reasons,'' said the 23-year-old. ``It's just too bad. I never saw it, but I thought it was pretty funny.''"

""I think the disciplinary action was quite appropriate," added Roman Olszewski in an interview with The Team all-sports radio station. "The officials were offended, very offended."

Good for Reid:
"Reid Coolsaet, the 22-year-old from Hamilton, Ont., who finished third by virtue of the disqualification, said that Blouin should have been awarded the medal and plans on mailing it to him."

"To the tall foreheads of the Canada Games, I say let's keep this in perspective."
