by REUBEN TERRADO
2 DAYS AGO


CALVIN Abueva of Phoenix Pulse has been suspended indefinitely by the PBA and fined P70,000 for two separate incidents recently in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Abueva has been slapped with the penalty after being summoned by PBA commissioner Willie Marcial on Tuesday.

Abueva was given a P50,000 penalty for the clothesline against TNT import Terrence Jones last Sunday that merited a flagrant foul two.

Abueva has also been given a P20,000 fine for a verbal altercation and obscene gestures against a fan, Bobby Ray Parks Jr.’s girlfriend Maika Rivera last Friday against Blackwater.


Phoenix Pulse coach Louie Alas, meanwhile, was also suspended for two games and fined P40,000 for engaging into a physical encounter against a player on Sunday.

Alas was also fined P20,000 after a flagrant misconduct for physically contacting TNT cager David Semerad, and P20,000 for issuing statements detrimental to the league.

Other players were not spared from fines.


Jones was slapped with a P70,000 fine for two separate incidents. A P50,000 fine was given to Jones for hitting Abueva in the groin area, the incident that led to Abueva’s ejection, and a P20,000 penalty for physically contacting a referee.

TNT consultant Mark Dickel was fined a total of P21,000 for throwing the ball at a referee and disrespectfully addressing a game official.

David Semerad and Anthony Semerad of TNT were fined P20,000 each for their involvement in the scuffle that occurred early in the first quarter of the game between TNT and Phoenix Pulse.

PBA explains decision to suspend Calvin Abueva indefinitely
by REUBEN TERRADO
2 DAYS AGO



THE PBA admitted it had enough of Calvin Abueva’s behavior over the past two games, forcing the league to penalize the Phoenix Pulse player with an indefinite suspension.

In a statement by the league, the PBA explained the reason behind suspending Abueva for an indefinite number of games, saying commissioner Willie Marcial can no longer allow Abueva to continue with his behavior that the league described as “offensive” and “obnoxious.”

“Commissioner Marcial said that he had to impose the penalty of indefinite suspension to instill discipline and maintain professionalism in the league. He said that he can no longer allow Abueva to continue with his offensive and obnoxious on-court behavior against the fans and his fellow players, which the fiery player is known for.”

Abueva was penalized for two separate incidents. Abueva was thrown out of the game for a clothesline against TNT import Terrence Jones on Sunday, while he was also embroiled in a controversy on Friday when he was accused of doing lewd gestures against a fan later identified as Blackwater cager Bobby Ray Parks’ girlfriend Maika Rivera on Friday.

Due to the incidents, Abueva was also fined P50,000 for his act against Jones and P20,000 for the lewd gestures against Rivera, the act of which was caught on video.

“Fans go to the playing venues to enjoy the games, not to be insulted or disrespected,” said the PBA. “The welfare of the fans is of utmost importance to the PBA and he (Marcial) will not hesitate to impose heavy penalties on those who breach this rule, especially against women.

“He (Marcial) also said that while some level of physicality is allowed during the games, violent behavior or unsportsmanlike conduct have no place in the PBA,” said the PBA.

The PBA also said there is no time frame for the lifting of the suspension, with Marcial saying “it will all depend on how and when Abueva makes an apology to those whom he has offended, and how he will henceforth reform in his ways.”

Marcial added the Abueva penalty should serve as a stern warning to all players in the league to act accordingly.

“The Commissioner said that the indefinite suspension of Abueva should serve as a stern warning for him and other players to act as professional athletes and that unbecoming conduct or any act or statement that is prejudicial or detrimental to the PBA will be severely punished.

“If the players have any complaints about fan behavior during the games, they can always bring it to the attention of the Office of the Commissioner who can warn the fans or even send them out of the venue,” said the league.

Where does Abueva ban rank among harshest punishments in PBA? Let's see
by RANDOLPH B. LEONGSON
2 DAYS AGO


APPARENTLY, the PBA has had enough of Calvin Abueva's antics and the commissioner deemed it fit to not only slap a hefty P70,000 fine but, for the first time ever, hand out an indefinite suspension to 'The Beast.'

"Commissioner (Willie) Marcial said that he had to impose the penalty of indefinite suspension to instill discipline and maintain professionalism in the league," the league statement explained.

Marcial said "he can no longer allow Abueva to continue with his offensive and obnoxious on-court behavior against the fans and his fellow players, which the fiery player is known for."

There are questions on how long the indefinite suspension would be, though the league said that the ban "will all depend on how and when Abueva makes an apology to those whom he has offended, and how he will henceforth reform in his ways."


It also won't come as much of a surprise if the public has seen the last of Abueva, at least for the conference, seeing the apparent lack of remorse from the Kapampangan forward after his tumultuous weekend.

But as harsh as the PBA punishment on Abueva seemed to be, there are penalties far heavier imposed by previous commissioners.

To put the Abueva ban in perspective, let's look back at some of the harshest penalties handed out in Philippine basketball in the past:


Don Allado

Don Allado was the last player to be meted a one-conference ban after going on a rant against game-fixing on Twitter after Barako Bull was ousted from the 2012 Governors' Cup following a 99-95 loss to Powerade.


Then-PBA commissioner Chito Salud said in a statement: "This is a serious accusation and I do not intend to take it lightly."

The suspension forced Allado to miss out on the 2013 Philippine Cup, on top of a P500,000 fine - the league record for fines levied against an individual.

Wynne Arboleda

Wynne Arboleda was also banned for the remainder of the season after attacking a fan, later identified as Alain Katigbak, during Burger King's Philippine Cup game against the Smart Gilas national team back in October 2009.


Sonny Barrios, the commissioner of that time, also handed a P20,000 fine for the pair of flagrant foul penalty one Arboleda committed during the duel.

Arboleda appealed the ban and was back in action in May 2010 for Air21's campaign in the Fiesta Conference.

Jimwell Torion

In 2003, former PBA commissioner Noli Eala also dealt Red Bull guard Jimwell Torion an indefinite suspension after flunking a random drug test in March during the All-Filipino Cup.


Eight months later, Torion found himself on the sidelines anew, this time for his clothesline tackle on Jimmy Alapag that broke the Talk 'N Text playmaker's nose. That led to his eight-month ban, which was later reduced to four on appeal.


Rudy Distrito

Ginebra's resident bruiser Rudy Distrito was also banned by the late commissioner Jun Bernardino for the rest of the 1995 PBA season after a dangerous tackle on then-Alaska neophyte Jeffrey Cariaso in Game Four of the All-Filipino Cup Finals. He would never return to the pro league.

Renaldo Balkman

And who could forget this NBA veteran?

The Puerto Rican reinforcement was meted a lifetime ban and a P250,000 fine by Salud for choking his Petron teammate Arwind Santos in their game against Alaska in the 2013 Commissioner's Cup.

Five years later, Marcial - with the approval of Santos - lifted the lifetime ban and paved the way for Balkman's return in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, leading the now-San Miguel Beermen to a runner-up finish.

Ivan Johnson

In 2016, Ivan Johnson was also dealt with a lifetime ban and was subsequently meted a P250,000 fine after the temperamental import disrespected and cursed at then-PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa during TNT's game against Meralco.

He would later apologize and would have his penalty downgraded to a season-long ban, as well as his penalty being reduced to P150,000.

Robert Jaworski

Going way back, legend Robert Jaworski almost didn't make it to the PBA after he and Meralco teammate Big Boy Reynoso were banned for life in 1972 by the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) for attacking referees Joe Obias and Eriberto Cruz during the Reddy Kilowatts' heated affair against Crispa in the MICAA.

Rumor has it that Malacanang, acting on an appeal by an 'influential person,' intervened and ordered the BAP to reinstate Jaworski and Reynoso in 1973 in time for their stint with the Philippine team to rule the Asian Championships - then known as the ABC - that same year.

I agree with the punishment imposed by the PBA to Calvin Abueva because he already crossed the line. Naintindihan ko po na nadala ng emotion si calvin during the game, lalo pa’t di natawagan si jones ng referee nung tirahin siya sa private part niya not to mention lamang ang kalaban at naghahabol sila kaya lalong nauwi sa frustratation, pero di pa rin dahilan un para gawin niya ung clothesline kay jones, what if worst scenario ang nangyari, mas nagkaroon ng matinding damage physically kay jones? Kaya tama lang ang ginawa ng PBA na punishment kay abueva, at the same time pinapakita pa rin ng PBA na dapat kontrolin pa rin ng mga PBA players ang kanilang mga emotions, alam ko mahirap para sa mga PBA players pero kailangan para na rin sa interest ng PBA, ng mga PBA fans at sa kanilang mga pamilya (PBA players). :-)

Maybe MPBL's Pampanga Lanterns are just waiting and will embrace with warm welcome their cocky fellow kapampangan?
Just my wild imagination.

In your opinion bro, which is worse....

Ron Artest mauling a fan/Malice in the Palace or Calvin clotheslining Jones?

Wala talagang class itong abueva. pati babae sa courtside binabastos nya.
masyadong magaslaw. nagkalat talaga ng kagaguhan. delikado ginawa nya doon sa import.
parang ininsulto nya authority nagpapalakad sa PBA pagkatapos maka sakit ng kapwa player.
pasayaw sayaw pa. palagay ko doon napuno ang PBA.

In my opinion bro….I think ung kay calvin abueva’s clotheslining jones ang mas worse bro. kasi iba ung tirahin ka ng di mo alam (parang ambush) na wala kang kalaban-laban mas delikado un.. kesa dun sa brawl na kahit papano makakabuelo ung aatakihin and not to mention na meron agad makakaawat. Like what happened dun sa fan na inatake n Ron Artest kahit papano alam ng fan na pasugod na sa kanya si ron artest at kahit inabot siya ni artest may mga tao agad naka-awat sa kanila. Actually pinanood ko pa ulit ngayon sa youtube ung incident at ung pag-atake ni artest dun sa fan.. Na remember ko ang brawl na to ng pacers-pistons way back 2004 pa.. :-)

Question is, nasaktan kaya si Jones or nag-inarte lang?
Samantalang yung inassault ang fan, bugbog yun for sure...

@JABESJ...It’s either way bro. puedeng hindi (nag-inarte lang) or oo (kita naman sa replay video na sapul talaga and ayun sa report busted lips pa nga)…pero sa isang banda trained athlete si jones so medyo matibay… ang problema lang kasi dun what if sa leeg siya natamaan mataas ang possibility ang damage kay jones. … dun naman sa fan na inatake ni ron artest base dun sa report nung inatake ni artest sinisigawan ni artest ung fan kung siya ung bumato nagsabi naman ung fan na hindi habang hawak na siya ni artest at saka biglang nagka-awatan… wala namang malinaw na report na nasaktan o na injured ung fan na inatake niya (artest).. pero try ko pa rin mag-search hehe… :-)

Pero in general bro…mas delikado ung biglaang tirahin ka ng walang kamalay-malay o defenseless ka…un lang naman ang opinion ko. :-)
