Repost: FIBA Decision on Gilas: Several Players Suspended, Fines to be Paid, Games to be Played Behind Closed Doors

Ten Gilas Pilipinas players got suspended from international play for figuring in the infamous brawl that marred the FIBA World Cup Asia qualifier match between the Philippines and Australia last July 2 at the Philippine Arena.

FIBA, the world governing body for basketball, handed down the decision on Thursday, July 19, days after the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) and Basketball Australia sent their official reports on the incident.

Terrence Romeo, Jayson Castro, Calvin Abueva, Andray Blatche, Roger Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Japeth Aguilar, Carl Bryan Cruz, Matthew Wright and Jio Jalalon will serve their respective suspensions for their involvement in the full-blown melee.

Abueva will serve the longest suspension with 6 games while Pogoy, Cruz and Jalalon will each serve a 5-game ban.

Castro, Romeo, Blatche Rosario got suspended for 3 games each while Aguilar and Wright got banned for a game each. 

Nine Gilas players were thrown out of the game, which saw the Philippines lose by default after not having enough personnel on the court while Jalalon was seen landing a punch on Nathan Sobey's head.

Only June Mar Fajardo, Gabe Norwood and Baser Amer were not ejected during the match, and thus, spared from further FIBA sanctions.

Some of Gilas' coaching staff did not go scot-free from the FIBA decision.

Gilas head coach Chot Reyes will serve a one-game suspension and shall pay a disciplinary fine of 10,000 Swiss francs (approx. P535,000) while deputy coach Jong Uichico will serve a 3-game suspension for joining the Filipino mob that mauled Chris Goulding.

The SBP, meanwhile, will pay a disciplinary fine of 250,000 Swiss francs (approx. P13.37 million) for the unsportsmanlike behavior of its delegation members and of its public, as well as for insufficient organization of the game. 

FIBA, through a press release sent to the media, stated that the Philippines will play the next home game behind closed doors while a ban for two more home games has been placed under a probationary period of 3 years.

In the Aussie side, Daniel Kickert will serve a 5-game suspension, Thon Maker will serve a 3-game suspension while Goulding will serve a one-game suspension.

Sobey, despite getting thrown out of the game, did not receive any sanction.

Basketball Australia shall pay a disciplinary fine of 100,000 Swiss francs (approx. P5.34 million) for the unsportsmanlike conduct of its players and for ripping the FIBA-approved stickers at the Philippine Arena on the eve of the game.

If there is a silver lining in the decision, the suspended players' PBA and National Basketball League careers are not affected by the suspension, according to a report by Fox Sports Australia's Olgun Uluc. 

The FIBA Secretary in General has also decided that referees who officiated the game shall be removed with immediate effect from the FIBA Elite Program and shall not be nominated to any FIBA-recognized competitions for one year.

Prior to the FIBA decision, SBP president Al Panlilio bared that they're considering not sending a team in the 2018 Asian Games this August.

The Philippines was set to field a TNT KaTropa-reinforced national squad to the Asiad but with Castro, Romeo, Rosario and Pogoy suspended, the SBP may look into other options.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas will be given 14 days to appeal to FIBA, and 21 days in the Court of Appeals from the time the appeal decision was handed down. –with reports from Beatrice Go/Rappler.com

    1. Comments like and the ‘proud to be pinoy” are of the same kind, only this is worse. People like you don’t know the hard work those players put into the games. More than the kahihiyan of the regular Filipino which is mababaw, mas affected yung players sa nangyari. Kahit pa kasalanan ng players, the least these epal netizens could do is shut up. Hindi sila nagbuhos ng hirap para sa training at game, wala silang ambag sa gastos ng training, wala sila sa game, hindi sila ang binastos, at hindi sila ang may sanction. Wala namang nagawa ang basketball para sa dignidad nyo so itigil niyo na yang hanash tungkol sa kahihiyan niyo.

Nakaakibat Sa asal Nila Kung papano ang ibang tao sa ibang bansa tumitingin sa atin.Maraming naapektuhan na tao at bagay.Hindi mababaw ang pananaw namin,lalo na dito sa FP.Ikaw ang mababaw sa paniniwala mo.

    3. Kayo naman. Ang tamang reaction ng Pinas let the referees handle the situation. Yung ginawa ng Pilipinas, sobrang out of proportion sa ginawa ni Kickert. Kung alam ni Kickert na asal hayop tayo e malamang d nya yan ginawa. Besides nauna naman si Pogoy pasimpleng nanakit so sha iblame nyo na nagstart ng brawl.

  29. Oh ano, worth it ba ang #puso at laban hashtags?!! Hahaha mga balat sibuyas ang iinit ng ulo. Ngayon mga bulsa nila ang palabanin nila dahil malaking fines ang babayaran ng association. Tignan ko lang kung hindi i-disiplina ang buong team Lalo na pati coaches nakigulo.

  31. Imbes na mapondohan yung national athletes sa ibang sports na pwedeng yumabong kung mapondohan lang sana ng mabuti, mapupunta lang na naman sa fine ng mga hindi nag-iisip na basketball player at coach yung pera. Dahil malamang sa SBP din napupunta yung bulk ng kakarampot na sports budget ng Pilipinas.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yung perang pambabayad sa kalokohan nila is something other sporting teams/athletes could only dream of having. Gilas is so privileged dahil basketball is such a popular sport here (therefore it’s easy to get sponsors) while yung ibang atleta na may PUSO din hirap na hirap makakuha ng suporta. Sana isipin nila kung gaano sila ka blessed na at the very least they have so many people rallying behind them and are willing to spend money on providing their needs.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Both sides were handed fines and suspensions, so both did something wrong before and while playing. Look at the Aussie team, they are fined for unsportmanslike conduct and for ripping off FIBA approved stickers. Sadly, the Gilas team were unable to rein their tempers, though understandable IMO since they're already tired and in adrenaline high. Good thing the referees are out.
