With the controversial finish for Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s Philippine Cup campaign, the team’s boisterous crowd show their disgust by throwing coins to the court.
Some media people were caught in the line of fire as some reports confirm that some courtside photographers were hit by the head by huge 5-peso coins.
Furthermore, there were reports that Globalport’s forward, Jay Washington – including his family were being harassed with coin-throwing.
With that, there had been reports that Jay Washington mocked the Ginebra fans on his way out to make them more angry.
Former Gilas Pilipinas player, Terrence Romeo – who had 23 points for Globalport – was not also spared as sources said that his car was being thrown coins of different sizes.
In a conflicting report, Romeo thrown out a dirty finger to the fans that made the Ginebra fans more upset.
Romeo’s teammate, Stanley Pringle was quick to defend to everyone that Romeo never did such profane actions via twitter.
Amidst the chaos brought by angered Ginebra fans, Romeo and Joe Devance of Barangay Ginebra tried to calm down the unruly fans.
Still, Ginebra is said to file for a protest after the controversial ball-hugging incident during the final seconds of the overtime period. The PBA gave them until 12nn of December 28 (Monday ET) to put in black and white their concerns regarding the referee’s non-call.
