It doesn't happen often, but when Riot decides to crack down on teams they crack down on them hard. Australia was rocked by the Riot banhammer a couple of years ago after Team Immunity were found to have failed to pay match payments to their players on time.

But today's bans are a little bit bigger. Not one, not two, but three League of Legends teams have been banned from participating in any developer-sanctioned leagues, with a third given 10 days to sell their lucrative LCS spot.
