PBA commissioner Chito Salud called Don Allado’s comments on the league “way out of line” and hinted that severe punishment could await the Barako Bull center.
“He is certainly way out of line,” Salud said on Wednesday. “He is indicting not just the game officials, but the entire organization and membership of the league, his co-players and team officials alike. This is a serious accusation, and I don’t intend to take it lightly.”
Salud was referring to comments Allado made on Twitter after Barako Bull’s loss to Powerade on Wednesday night.
“PBA games are fixed. They control who is in & who is out. It’s a disgrace to be in this league,” wrote Allado.
There were several missed calls during the game, which has led to the suspension of referee Peter Balao for the rest of the season.
PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial said Allado should be meted a heavier penalty beyond the usual sanctions.
“Para sa akin, kulang ang fine at suspension para kay Don Allado sa mga accusations na binitawan niya,” he said.
