Pujante binara si Baldwin
KONONTRA ni 84th University Athletic Association of the Philippines 2022 Basketball Commissioner Tonichi Pujante na ‘di kailangan at mapanlait ang naging tirada ni Ateneo Blue Eagles coach Thomas Anthony ‘Tab’ Baldwin sa game officials gayundin ang Far Eastern Tamaraws mentor Roderick Cesar ‘Olsen’ Racela matapos ang kanilang laro noong Huwebes.
Binatikos ni Baldwin ang referees at giniit na kailangan na umano ng mga ito na magpaopera ng kanilang mga mata dahil sa aniya’y mga sablay at ‘di natawag sa laro ng ADMU-FEU sa men’s hoops second round eliminations sa Mall of Asia Arena sa Pasay
“We find Ateneo coach Tab Baldwin’s remarks on the three game officials unnecessary and derogatory,” pahayag ni Pujante Linggo. “There are proper channels to air grievances and we’ve had healthy and constructive interactions with the post-game reviews with most of the teams.”
“Game officiating concerns are sent which we address technically and objectively during our referees’ game film viewing session. They raise what they think are missed/bad calls but can actually be good calls or non-calls. For our part, we man up and admit mistakes. It has always been more beneficial and productive.” wika pa nito. “Note that calls are logged and validated with the Instant Replay System (IRS) and counterchecked with stats.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
