    RAIN or Shine coach Yeng Guiao has been hit with a one-game suspension and a fine of P100,000 for what the PBA Commissioner's Office said was "persistent conduct unbecoming of a coach."

    Guiao appeared before Commissioner Chito Salud on Wednesday morning after he was summoned for his ejection from Game Three of Rain or Shine's Philippine Cup semifinal playoff against Petron where he was given a technical for flashing "a dirty finger at the commissioner's and technical committee's table."

    They Said It!

    “I would like to state unequivocally that this disciplinary sanction cannot fully convey the sense of regret of this office for the insulting and unsavory antics coach Guiao continues to display and foist on the players, the referees, his peers and the entire viewing public of the PBA." - PBA commissioner Chito Salud

    Salud, in a statement, described Guiao's antics as "insulting and unsavory" as he meted out the latest penalty for one of the biggest critics of officiating in the pro league.

    Salud said Guiao was sanctioned for "persistent conduct unbecoming of a coach exhibited in a manner positively indicating disrespect, if not disdain or scorn, for the league as an institution and its fans."

    "I would like to state unequivocally that this disciplinary sanction cannot fully convey the sense of regret of this office for the insulting and unsavory antics coach Guiao continues to display and foist on the players, the referees, his peers and the entire viewing public of the PBA," Salud added.

    The veteran coach has actually been ejected for successive games in the best-of-seven semifinal playoff against Petron, having failed to finish Game Four as well due to successive technicals.

    Still, the Painters managed to win the game to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
