I was still a bit sedated about what happened in the last day of the PBA Semi-Finals last night. I don't know how to react properly because it was my first time to feel that way ever since I got into the habit of watching PBA. And so, to educate my self on how to properly react, I just opened my Twitter account and after that I visited the accounts of my two idols in Sports Commentating, Noli Eala and Ronnie Nathanielsz. Luckily, I found what I'm looking for. Here are some of the notable things that they said about the PBA Semis that ended last night.
Here are the Tweets of Mr. Ronnie:
"The Tropang Texters were booed off the court with fans shouting "Benta." Their utterly dismal showing hurt their image and that of the PBA."
"Coach Chot tried to finesse the loss by complaining about the officiating. But even a blind man could see what was happening."
"Talk N' Text could beat any team among those vying for a finals slot. Impossible to understand why they virtually gave the game to Petron."
"Talk N' Text lost to Petron and saved themselves from facing Ginebra in the finals. Are they scared of the Gin Kings as some fans believe?"
And here are the Tweets of Mr. Noli Eala:
"To Chito pls dont rely on d advise of d kiss-ass people surrounding you. Listen to good advise from people who dnt rely on pba for a living."
"Never imagined a game where 2 teams are playing in order for 2 other teams to make the Finals."
From what they said I suddenly had the heart to say that, what happened last night is now a part of the history of the PBA. Whether we like it or not, it will no longer change the outcome of the Governors' Cup. What's important is that we already know the things that we should expect if there's a Quotient Rule. It's not only for the PBA management but also, it is for the PBA teams. If there's a Quotient Rule, PBA Teams should remember that investing wins for the future is very important. Take a look what happened to Ginebra. They could have won some games during the past but they wasted their opportunities and they suffered the negative effects of those losses in the semis. It was very unfortunate for them to be eliminated because of the Quotient Rule but that's the rule of law in the Governors' Cup. Call it a tragedy as Ginebra was the one who dictated the fates of Alaska and Petron, but let's face it, that's the Quotient Rule for you.
