PBA: 'Due process' ongoing for Blackwater s own protocol breach

The ongoing "Sorsogon Bubble" saga surrounding the UST Growling Tigers has cast a light on supposed quarantine violations by sports teams in the Philippines. UST is the first major case for amateur teams but Blackwater already made headlines last month when it comes to PBA teams. The Elite got into hot water for allegedly breaking quarantine protocols for having players work out. Things got so bad that team owner Dioceldo Sy put the team up for sale for P150 million. The team ended up taking a P100,000 fine from the PBA after Sy issued statements seen as detrimental to the league. The issue has died down quite a bit, with the Elite actually officially practicing this week as PBA teams were finally allowed to do so. As for the final resolution on the Blackwater saga, the team's case is pending as far as the PBA Board is concerned. "To be transparent, we're going through the process. What is important is due process." Chairman Ricky Vargas said about the Blackwater issue during the recent PSA forum. "What is also important is to ascertain that the decision that is going to be made, or has been made, is not contrary to the constitution and by-laws of the PBA," he added. Since the Blackwater issue first hit mainstream, Vargas says all concerned parties have maintained constant communication. However, the topics being discussed are not to be made public just yet. "This is a very sensitive issue that we are looking into. Exchanges of letters have been happening, we are awaiting for Blackwater to bring this matter up to the Board," Vargas said. "We choose to remain quite about this at the moment, I hope you could respect that. Both parties agreed to keep the discussion private. The whole Board will be part of this process.     — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
