Re Claims: There are plenty of cameras around, until footage comes out otherwise, treat the coach's claims about Kickert pushing their players during warmups as mad and madeup rantings. Racism claims, again without proof are mad rantings.
Filipinos don't seem to get this point, but even if either mad ranting came to be of truth, it provides zero justification for coward punches and thuggery displayed.
Working on what we DID see:
Kickert: Dropped a guy with the forearm, it's within the realms of behaviour you see in basketball through NBL to NBA. Kickert should not be blamed for Philippines totally disproportionate behaviour. Even doing something dirty, you don't expect the entire Filipino team act as disgracefully as occurred - that behaviour is solely on them.
Ejection was right, a 3-4 game ban for the arm drop and the fighting behaviour is more than sufficent.
Goulding: The annoying flop aside, cannot be blamed for fighting if he's locked on the floor being kicked and punched. Impossible to expect him to somehow break free and avoid the fight.
Ejection was wrong, should not receive punishment. Wouldn't surprise me if he gets a fine for the sheer fact he was part of the fight. If he got a ban, that would be very wrong.
Sobey: Clearly acted to split up the fight, didn't engage much. Ejection was wrong, should not receive punishment.
Maker: Acted like an idiot jumping into people's backs and making air kicks. Didn't connect - thankfully.
Ejection was correct, fine for fighting behaviour reasonable. Borderline on any suspension, if he had connected on a kick it would be a very different story. Wouldn't surprise me if handed down a harsh 1-2 game suspension.
Fan/Official who punched Sobey: Ban for life from Basketball; Criminal proceedings for assault.
Fan/Official who threw chair at Sobey: Ban for life from Basketball, perhaps Criminal proceedings for assault.
Filipino players who engaged with punches towards players heads, kicking or locking Goulding down to the floor: Full year ban & fine.
Filipino Coach: Apology, fine, banned for 2 years from coaching basketball & sacked.
