Name one (excluding for drug use or other criminal behaviour)
Muhammad Ali had his boxing licence suspended for 3 years for being a conscientious objector. Vinnie Jones was suspended for 6 months for doing a voiceover on a video about dirty tactics in football.
I gave examples even though your exclusions don't make sense...it's all breach of contract ultimately. It's not illegal to take performance-enhancing drugs but it is against the rules the players agree to in order to participate in the sport. The football association (at least the English one) has to provide permission to clubs to enter competitions outside of the league system \ agreed cups. Without that permission, they're effectively in breach of contract. Whether or not they enforce that, time will tell.
